    I'd be interested in why you wish for your 1150 back ? Reason ? I have an 1150 & [do not mean to sound smug] but I can't imagine a better motorcycle...mine is just a naked Roadster...but I LUV the thing...and yes I have owned several different brands / models.

    I had an 1150RT and an 1150R Roadster. Compared with the 1200RT I have now, the 1150RT was, in my opinion, more stable at very fast speeds. It seemed more planted and less prone to wind. The 1200RT seems "flimsy" with thinner plastic everything. The wind screen vibrates more. It's more difficult for me to work on. I guess I just haven't bonded to the 12RT, even though I've ridden it cross country a couple of times. The 1150R Roadster was a "more fun bike", but I didn't like touring on it. Last of all, I like the looks of the 1150RT more than the 12RT. Just a personal preference. YMMV. But then again, I've had seller's remorse with every bike I've parted with.

    Glad to see you back, K75S. Hope you're feeling better. As an aside, there are daily R1100S postings on Craigs List.

    "1150R Roadster was a "more fun bike", but I didn't like touring on it."

    I went from a 99RS to a Japanese cruiser, to my Roadster...I like the 'air' the roadster allows, but yes 'bad' air & 'wet' air....is a pain... But!....not near as bad as the cruiser. But if I need to seek shelter I do, and enjoy the better weather when it returns.

    Yes, I know where to find them. Just riding around on the K75s for now. I seem to stay out of trouble on that bike.
    But I think I will look around for something different next year.

    So...maybe a Hayabusa? I hear those are good for staying out of trouble!

    My coworker is an MSF instructor, does track days on his Yamaha 600, races cars... he shows up a work a couple of weeks ago on a Harley. He said he was trying to stay out of trouble. Now back to my lurking.

    jcabiles , I am familiar with Henrico's RTs. I know they have had a mixture of Oilheads and Hexheads. I heard they just received new bikes.

    Where did you get your RT-P? It sure looks good.

    R1150rt-p

    I took this in December 2007. I believe the story behind it is that the HCPD motorcycle police were called on for a VIP escort. It was getting colder. Not my idea of good riding conditions.

    Morton's in Fredericksburg, May 2012. It only had 56K+ miles on it.

    It so much fun to ride.
