I purchased this 2004 BMW R1150RT (unseen) in December 2006 and it had about 1000 miles on it. I researched bikes for a long time before I decided I was going to get an RT. It is a great bike. In April 2007, I got a one way flight down to D.C. to pick it up from the seller who lived in Great Falls VA. I rode it back to Boston. I did two four-hour legs on the return trip. I spent the night in New Jersey and then came back to Boston. I stopped in Providence and had lunch with a couple friends. It was a nice smooth ride with no issues or problems along the way.
