Is my assumption correct, or is does the RT still handle like a big luxury touring motorcycle?
Am I correct in assuming that the RT is going to have vastly superior wind protection than the GSA?
The RT looks massive, but it's all a big hollow fairing. You have to ride one to believe something that looks so big can handle so well.
That same big fairing gives the best weather protection in the BMW line. Reviews have said that the weather protection is even better than the K1600. Since I got the RT it has extended the comfortable riding season by a month in the spring and one in the fall. It's actually too efficient in the hot summer months; there's no breeze at all. That's when I ride the Triumph.
