Besides riding my new 2018 R1200RT home from the dealer ship, this is my first ride with it.
I rode early to Green Cove Springs to meet Highway41 (Bill W.) and Ashley for coffee at Spring Park Coffee.

Coffee.

After coffee, we rode west and south and ended up in MIcanopy, FL.
There we stopped at the Old Florida Cafe for lunch.

Total mileage for the day was 285 miles and turned into a perfect day for riding.
The new 2018 R1200RT is a very impressive machine. Besides having a smoother motor, the handling is much better then the 2007. The bike feels very planted and stable in the corners, which is a big improvement over my 2007 RT.

Enjoy.

For some reason it reminds me of another lovely bike.
