Dreams Really Do Come True
I am now the owner of a BMW R1150 RT. Its hard to believe that after all these years I am finally the owner of a BMW. As my elder brother so wisely stated... "its about damned time... you've only been talking about them for 10 years."
Of course he's exaggerating. Neither of us were riding motorcycles 10 years ago. Like most Americans who've never ridden a motorcycle... we liked Harleys.
See... its only after you learn something about motorcycles that you finally realize how badly Harley sucks. And it wasn't until about 2004 when I really started appreciating these BMW's. The engineering is ridiculous. I could go on and on... but the best way to put it is... this is best bike out there for the long distance riding that JAC and I do.
And I would be greatly remiss if I didn't point out that it was my beloved and beautiful wife that convinced me to buy it. Pay attention there boys. I didn't convince her. I didn't do it in spite of her. She actively persuaded me. There were less expensive bikes. There were other options. She was adamant that I get this one... because she knew this is the one I really loved.
Now if you'll excuse me... I'm going to go sit on it... and watch the power windshield go up and down.
