A 2003 R1150RT came home with me this past Saturday. This was a move from a Kawasaki Z750s. I was concerned with the difference in weight, the Kawi was just over 400 lbs, the RT over 600. I am very surprised that while under way, it does not feel heavy at all. Not until I tried to put it up on the center stand did it feel heavy . It is also the most comfortable motorbike I have ridden, and it is still quite nimble when the roads get twisty. It was also well planted on some dirt roads that we took. It did start to slide around on some loose gravel, though. I will be doing the 24k mile service this weekend, cleaning it up, and putting up some photos in the RT photo thread. I think this bike is gonna be with me for a while.
