I'm just venting here. I have put 3000 miles on my 98 R100RT so far. I just can't seem to get used to this bike. I miss the old K bike engine. I love the ergos of the RT, and the style is outstanding, I just cant love the engine. I don't like the 'thump' of the twin. I miss that sewing machine 4 cylinder, that would pull smooth as silk all the way from idle to 7500 rpm. I wish there was a R-RT with a K engine! I know...the k1200GT...that bike has a few deal killers too. (small side case, a little too 'sparse' in the dash area, just a little too sporty ergos)
I guess I'm going to have to bite the bullet and admit that a K1200LT is what I want. Geez, I didnt think I was that old.
