    New to BMW
    « on: 2019-03-31 17:23:21 »
    We all know the story, walked in to take a look at the 2019 1250RT, within a hour was signing papers. I have never owned a BMW but have been familiar to them and the boxer engine since a friend had one in 1973. Owned everything from a 50cc Honda, 350 Honda, 1973 750 Bonneville, HD low rider, road king, electra glide classic and my last bike 2014 Triumph Trophy. Heard good things about the new engine and since this may well be the last bike I own thought you only live once go for it. Its the standard black model. Looking forward to this.

          I said that when I bought my last bike three years ago.  Still went out and bought another. I said it again this time, the salesman just smiled.
