I traded the RT into my BMW dealer (Motorrad Central - Dalkeith) on 13th December 2019 with 17,240 miles on the odometer.  During the time I owned the bike I used 1,312 litres of fuel, working out as a lifetime averaged fuel consumption of 60 m.p.g.  Sadly, after my June 2016 Euro-trip I had not found the time to get out much on the bike, however the 1st of (now) 4 grandchildren arrived a few months after said trip, so I am a lucky lad.  The RT is a great machine with quite a bit of get-up-and-go, yet very comfortable and economical for long distance touring.  Once on the move the bike is easy to  manouvre, however 274kgs plus full panniers and tail bag is quite a handful to push about... and having had one hernia operation it was perhaps prudent to acknowledge I am no longer a teenager.  The opportunity to keep long distance touring ability along with local day runs, on a lighter machine, came along with the Middle Weight F900XR.  This should give me the good ergonomics of the GSs I have owned, but road orientated.
