Thanks, Being honest, I loved the RT and have owned 3 in all. The R1250RT was the best of the 3, but it was going to cost me a lot of $$$ I did not want to spend to experiment and possibly end up with the same issue. I ran in the bike in over a weekend, loved the performance and handling, etc, but just could not get comfy on it.Congrats on a beautiful new GTL. It truly is beautiful. I have heard others say they also could not get comfortable on an R1200/1250 due to back and shoulder pain. One of the most comfortable bikes I’ve ever owned was an R1200 GSA which was extremely modified ergonomically. Because I was missing the GSA, I now have a new one in my garage. Because it’s winter here, I’ve only ridden it about 3 miles total.
