I thought I would confess to my fellow RS riders that I am considering abandoning the RS for a more luxurious ride. I had an RT for a few months back in 2014 and still remember how comfortable it was. I have found the RS to be very uncomfortable in comparison. I love everything about it except the riding position. I've tried risers and seat cushions to no avail. I could of course keep throwing more money into it for more expensive handlebar conversions and aftermarket seats but I don't think it will ever be as comfortable at the RT. Another RS limitation is the wind protection. I've tried a few windshields and it's better, but not the same as I had on the RT. I also recently sat on my buddy's GS and was instantly impressed with the comfortable riding position. There are many people out there that ride their GS's across the county or the world, so I'm wondering if that may also be an option. I'm guessing it wouldn't have the luxury of the RT, but maybe a better compromise than the RS is. I haven't made any final decisions, but I'm finding I ride my RS very little these days and don't even look forward to a 100 mile ride anymore.
