  1. So I've had my mid life crisis and lashed out and bought a toy. After quite some years of no bikes I've ended up with a BMW R1200RT. Interested in hearing other peoples experiences and maybe getting involved in charity rides and the like.

  11. It's the first big road bike I've owned. Over the years I've taken bikes like a K100RS, GSX-R for rides but not owned. The K100 was the bike that left the biggest impression on me so when I started to look for something the R1200RT went to the top of the list quickly. From my perspective the bike can be bipolar, if you want to ride it hard it'll respond but if you want to dawdle along it can cope with that too. The brakes are great and according to all accounts the motor is bullet proof. Only just got it so I've got a long way to go.
