    Nice bike John. Now get out there and enjoy a few of those great mountain roads that I used to enjoy when I lived there.

    Re: 2016 BMW 1200RT

    Seeing this thread reminds me of how good this forum is and how disappointed I am in Honda. Honda led with technology for so long that I never thought I'd want to leave the brand. I went to BMW in 2007 as cruise control, electronically controlled suspension and other amenities went from feeling like a gimick to something that really enhances the touring experience. For years I've been waiting to see how Honda would respond and have wanted to go back to Honda engineering but they continue to offer bikes that are very beginner oriented without having enough excitement, have really odd styling or are the same bike with virtually no changes for a decade. Yamaha has been able to introduce beginner friendly, economical yet lively enough to have appeal to experienced riders. They have made evolutionary changes to the FJR to keep it in the conversation.

    I know the sport touring segment is small but it does make me sad that after being away from my very solid ST for almost 10 years that Honda still has not provided something to keep us in the fold. Thankfully, others have and the R1200RT is a great example of a bike to consider as owners of ST1300's look for another bike.

    I've had a VFR1200 for a couple of years and keep hoping they will put that engine in a sport touring bike. Let Honda recoup some investment in that excellent engine placed in a bike the market did not want. It is a dream many have had for a while and it seems far from being fulfilled. As Honda continues to ignore this segment it does my heart well to see this forum is still the great place it has always been. Optimistic, friendly to all riders of all brands, keeps away from drama like politics and is just a great place for support and friendship.

    Well done ST-owners forum.

    I happened to be looking at Craig's list for BMW parts and lucked into a good used BMW 49L top box from a guy in Fort Collins for $500.
    The same box new is $961 and the newer version box is $1360
    I will decide later if I get it painted to match the 2016 San Marino blue.
