I drove 2 hours today to test drive the new F800GT with all intentions of buying, but also drove an R1200R and after going back and forth, the R won me over. I guess the overall comfort, versatility, and feel of the R was just more of what I was looking for in my next bike. The GT was a great ride, but didn't seem as refined as the R. Thankfully the R was used so it was actually less money than the GT, so the wallet was relieved as well. The guys at Capitol BMW in Raleigh were top notch. Glad to be back in the BMW owners fold!
