Greetings All! After years of lusting after BMWs I finally took the plunge and bought a '02 R1150RT in dark blue mettalic. After much research I bought a one-way ticket to TN to pick it up on Memorial Day and my first ride was at Deals Gap, followed by a 2 day ride back home to WI. An excellent way to get to know my new ride!
This forum was really helpful in researching bikes before I put money down on one and was also great for preparing to do the 24 k maintenance (happily everything started and ran well after I did my very first valve adjustment, no extra parts left over on the garage floor either).
Anyway, I am absolutely loving the bike. I had high expectations at the outset and the RT has exceeded them in every way. Now I am just hoping to ride as much as possible this fall before I get snowed in. This is my first attempt at posting to any forum, so bear with me if I am making any technical errors. Cheers!
