I've owned other sport touring models, but the 1200 RT is bar-none the most incredibly good riding machine I've ever owned. Intuitive in the corners, 52 mpg on the road, and extremely good for long distances. I've found that for those that complain that it won't do the distances I would reply, break it in. This bike doesn't really wind out until a few thousand miles. Number 2, get a new seat. I have the Rick Mayer and have easily done 700 to 800 miles in a day. Number 3, change windshields. There are a number of windshields that are better for wind protection. The Boxer engine is easy to work on and will save you money if you can do your own valve adjustments. I've had mine for 2 years now and not one problem with even the smallest things. It is a perfect bike that needs to be ridden.

I have had it only three weeks and have ridden it 2600 miles so far with no problems. The bike has a lot of acceleration, the handling is great, and the ride is smooth. My wife loves to also ride on it. From reading other reviews I thought I would not get a full tank of gas. My 2007 bike has a factory air hole to let me filler up and to use the full seven gallons of gas. I fill it up to about one inch from the top. I will try to come back next year to update this review.

I actually was thinking of buying a Wing or an LT. Their weight was a big factor for me NOT to purchase either one. I am very happy with my RT. At 571 pounds (with a full tank of fuel) it is much easier to handle than the Wing or LT. For me, the RT was the right choice.
