I owned my new (1999) R1100RT for 10,500 miles. During this time I never got quite used to the clunky shifting and surging engine. My dealer could not correct these problems. The RT has great handling, braking and legendary BMW reliability. However, I could not accept the aforementioned flaws in a $16k machine, not to mention a BMW. To BMW's credit, the company has corrected these before releasing the new R1150RT. I replaced my '99 RT with a new (2001) Harley-Davidson Electra Glide Standard. Also, I continue to ride my trusty '79 R1100RS, which now has over 90k miles.

I bought this bike two years ago and 55000 miles later the only problem I have had is the front ABS sensor went south. I do all my own maintenance. So after the 600-mile checkup, I'm the only one to lay a wrench on it. To begin with, it surged at low speed. I spent some time making sure the throttle bodies were dead on, no more surge. This bike is good at everything it is designed to do. But it's too damn quiet and after-market parts are expensive. It takes some extremely high-quality parts to top what comes stock on a BMW. I would Ride this bike to all four corners of the US and not even worry about anything, not even rain. As long as you are moving you don't get wet. that's California rain. I haven't tried Florida rain yet. The R1100RT needs to look badder. It's a no posers bike.

After 26 K miles, the only problem has been a bad front abs sensor which my dealer replaced at no cost. The flaws that I have found with this bike are all easy to fix. 1. The stock seat is narrow and sloped to the front. A Corbin seat allows all day rides. 2. The stock windshield is too low when the seat is raised above the lowest position. Parrabellum makes a nice 4" taller replacement. 3. No running lights! The bike looks like a pickup truck with one headlight after dark. Add Running Lights at all four corners to increase safety after dark. This bike will run all day at any speed, most refrigerators don't give this much confidence. I like MEZ4s on both ends. Enjoy!
