Rode a GS today, new model. I had the opportunity to ride a RT last week, for the first time, and didn't enjoy much, specially the engine. Too tractor like for my tastes.
Today, I rode the GS and what a difference this new engine makes. It is smooth, just incredibly smooth when compared to the air/oil version.
I was so impressed that I'm now contemplating buying one myself.
The only thing I didn't like was the RPM at 75mph, cruising on the highway. Too high, too loud, etc. I was in Dinamic Mode. I felt like I needed the 7th gear.
Anyways, I would appreciate your input.
- What is a fair price to pay on a 2013 fully loaded?
- How much for panniers and top bag? BMW or third party?
- How much for the engine guard? BMW brand or third party?
Thanks for any input/help.
PS: the new RT, with this engine, will be phenomenal.
