    Anyone put carbon wheels on their R1200RT?

    I'm just curious if anyone has ever put a set of BSTs on their R1200RT. I've heard carbon wheels make a huge difference in handling and while you'd typically see them on a sportier bike, I've seen them on a GS1200 recently. I'm not sure I could justify the cost given the frequency with which I change out bikes but I'd definitely like to see pictures if anyone has them.

    I have them (BST wheels) on my R1200S. They make a huge difference in handling, and braking.

    Those are some serious looking wheels. And at a pretty serious price.
