    Hello Again

    Hello everyone, just wanted to say hello again. I've rejoined the BMWOA after being away for a few years while I was riding another Brand. But I just picked up a beautiful new 2012 R1200RT in October and I'm really loving the bike, and riding again.

    This new RT doesn't have the same kind of animal power that my old K1200GT had, but it is so much more comfortable, and is such a smooth, well balanced motorcycle every time I look down the speedo is still way over the posted limit! Surprises me every time. Great bike, and I'm really happy to be back on a Beemer.
    Ride Safe,
    Bob

    Welcome back. the R-1200-RT, , is a great ride. Good luck with the bike.
    The thing about traveling is, you never want it to end and you can't wait to get home.
    I answer to Roy, Chief, or Sarg.

    It really is! The more I ride it the more I like it. A beautiful motorcycle, great balance, good comfort, Good power. I really haven't ridden it that much, only 800 miles so far but as I get to know it I'm realizing how much fun touring will be this spring.

    Let's hope for an early spring!
    Ride Safe,

    Thanks!, my club is actually going to be out there for 10 days around the time of the June Rally. While the ride schedule is still being worked out, it might be cool to rearrange it so we can check that one out.

    Unfortunately we'll be back on the East Coast when the July Rally kicks off.
    Ride Safe,
