No, but the other way around.... ;-)

Probably. The R1200GS will wear off in a couple of weeks (I hope), and
then I'll be able to appreciate the RT for what it is. Although it
will always stay a heavy machine (280 kg - and that's maybe without
the ABS and alarm system versus 235 for the R80RT and 225 for the
R1200GS), so it'll probably never feel as light and nimble as these
two bikes.

Thanks. Scandinavia is on my list for a biggie tour, so I might take
you up on that offer :)
