2009 R1200RT in Florida

New 2013 Blue and silver R1200RT now in my garage.

TOP Above find my 20o9 RT resting under the Spanish Moss near the Tomaka River in Florida

This  bike is the 2nd in a line, the first of the r1200rt’s that I had was an 2006 and I managed to get 135,000 miles on it. Both are Identical bikes, with the ’09 having a auto traction control on the rear wheel, the first had a auto suspension adjust. Both of the bikes had heated seats, ABS, cruise control, electric windshields and a re wonderful long distance bikes.

This is the 2nd  RT. I have owned and us a brand new 2006 for 130,000 miles. It was really an very reliable bike. The 2nd was a 2009 purchased in 2011 with 800 miles on the OD. It is a Lowered bike and now has a Corbin Leather seat that took a while to break in but now is very comfortable. I think it will not be as reliable as the 06, as I have had to replace a few (5) fuel guage strips. And, well, I dont think it will has the distance going for it. Currently it has 36,000 on the Odometer in 1.5 years.

What will the next rip bring, I am going to Florida on the RT after Thanksgiving in 2012 with one Joe B. He is from the Scranton area and will be traveling down to be at a party in Cedar Key for the Wizard (Kevin Healy), one of the Iron Butt 11 days, 11,000 Miles.

 

 

The immediate destination will be our residence in Holiday Travel Park, Bunnell, Florida. (11 miles north of Daytona Beach).

Currently the Bike has 53,000 on it, doing well and I have decided to sell and get a different bike. 6/29/13

 

The update is that I really did, a new GT1600 that I put 300 miles on and than traded it for a 2013 R1200RT pictured above.
