Anyone switch from R1150RT to DL1000?
I would really like to buy a DL1000 for a lot of reasons. I love V-Twins, great ergo's, reliable, good reviews, good in twisties, can do fire roads.
But, I also want to do some long distance touring, some of which will be on the interstates. I rode a 2004 BMW R1150RT this week and it was the most "quiet" bike I ever riden at 80 to 90 mph on the highway. The electric windshied and fairing are unbelivably good.
But, I am quite concerned about the reliability (and cost of repairs of recent BMW's ... $2500 for rear drive failue or ABS failure ... both of which seem to be problem areas).
Question ... anyone who has experince with the R1150RT wind protection AND the VStrom ... can it be close with the MadStad bracket?
