    Big sister in the house!

    Well I went all cabin fever over this last Winter and bought a 2016 RT with only 5K miles on it. It already had the Iluim front crash bars with highway pegs. The bike got delivered last month, bought it from a BMW dealer in Texas. Since then, I added the Aeroflow windscreen and a Givi Dolomiti top case. It’s very different from riding the Scoot! Obviously, there’s shifting and lots more throttle. So....now I may be selling the scoot...we’ll see...hard to justify having two bikes in the garage...honestly, I have no complaints at all about the scooter. The RT is just a different riding experience.Click image for larger version.

    Yeah, I am tempted...selling the scoot may provide for some more domestic tranquillity..

    No question the CGT and RT are different and both have their advantages. I have usually been a multi-bike owner while always trying(?) to get down to that "one" bike. If it were me, I'd ditch the bike I don't ride very often, but that takes some time.

    Motorcycles are fun and can take you places (mentally, emotionally, and literally) that other machines cannot. If possible, Lee, take your time deciding if it's going to be one or two bikes in your garage.
