Rikki: I did in a back handed manner. I rented a 1200 GS last June for a ride in WV, and absolutely fell in love with it. However, I neither wished to pay the price for the BMW or support it in a town with the closest dealer over an hour a way. An employee of mine had a 2017 AT that I rode for about 40 miles and felt that would meet my needs just as well. Got a line on an Adventure Sport up in Hood River last November, and after working it hard on a test run handed over the cash. It was the right decision for me.
