There is no experience that quite compares to touring on a motorcycle — you get to see more, and you also get to feel, smell, and feel closer to your surroundings. One of the best bikes to tour on is the BMW R1200RT. A vast inventory is available on eBay. The German motorcycle manufacturer, BMW, has been making the R1200RT since the 1970s. The modern, air cooled version with ABS brakes was born in 1995 with the name R1100RT. The BMW R1200RT is the upgraded version of that bike and was first made in 2005, although it borrows much of its spirit from the early 1970s design. However, this one delivers 109 bhp and maxes out the torque at 89 kb-ft. It is the same engine that is in the GS adventure bike, which means that you can expect quick acceleration. The bike's center of gravity is low, as is the seating height. This makes it comfortable for short riders as well as tall, particularly when stopped. This is a bike that comes into its own when on the open road, whether you are cruising in a straight line and listening to the low hum of the flat twin engine, or going round corners.
