    I went from KRS to 1150GS to RTLC and then the 1200RS in 2017, the main reason was I could get both feet flat on the floor, I struggled with the GS and the RT and made pillion work a liitle more testing. I find the 1200RS excellent for when we go out two up and I don't get any complaints on the comfort, we only go away for a max of 3 nights on the RS, but I can get enough kit on the bike if it is just me, to get back to visit the UK. The only modification I made was the bar risers and this took quite a bit of weight off the wrists. The last item for me is always the shaft drive, having had one for 33 years, otherwise I would probably drop down to a smaller bike now.
