    Hey all, BMW R1200rt rider.  Belong to forums of many different makes and models.  I like to read about other bikes, pros and cons, etc....Even though I do love the R, I have to admit the Trophy is a better looking ride.

    You should take one for a ride droptine. I think that you would be changing bikes shortly afterwards.

    I came from. K1200S and naturally being a BMW man test rode the R1200RT when looking for a tourer.... The Trophy is so much the better bike in my opinion. Better equipped, better looking, better handling, better engine, better value for money.

    But the proof is in the riding. Test ride one..... Take it out for as long as the dealer will let you have one.... You will know within a few miles if it is for you.... The rest of us did.... The rest of the test ride you can just have fun on what will be your new ride!

    What part of NW Ohio are you in?   I grew up in Delphos.   Now in Columbus.

    BTW  -  I now have about 7,000 flawless miles on my Trophy.   Best bike i've ever been on and I've been on  a few.
