Ordered a new R1250RT today

Post by STeinar »

A new 1250RT will be delivered late March - A little surprised to find that the total price for this one - is similar to my 1200RT I got in Norway.
I thought the prices in Austria was far lower than in Norway, but not so.
But anyway - hopefully a new grate season - from my new location  :-)

The blue one - as normal :-)
But with the brown seating

But also find that I have to pay the same every month in insurance than I paid for the whole year in Norway  :(  Grrrrrr


Someone in Austria that could give me a hint on where to look for insurance - to a better price ?

You're only alive once, may as well make the most of what that time has to offer 👍 the 1250 engine is in that much demand they've halted production of lesser models such as the RS & R's to concentrate on the GS and RT's so I've read?

Well loving the new bike, 120miles for its maiden trip to the Yorkshire dales with the Mrs and luggage for over night stay. The auto suspension setting is very comfy. The engine note when the VVT opens reminds me of my VFR800 Vtec. Now time for a few 🍺
