In view of two things I use my R1200RT for errands as well as just riding and the cost of gasoline enters into this as well.

Today when I was returning from the drug store to my bike this guy in a small Japanese hybrid car pulls in beside me and asks me if that is an over sized scooter?

"Excuse me?"

Then he says it can't be a full sized motorcycle, " I replied, perhaps not it will only go 160 MPH, by the way, is that roller skate you are riding in pregnant?"

End of conversation................
