Visordown has a new long-termer, in the form of a fully kitted out BMW R1250 RT LE. We’ll have the Bimmer for the rest of 2019, and it will be receiving some special modification as Toad rides it all over the UK.

The 1250 RT is best known for its long-range comfort and countryside cruisability, so in typical Visordown fashion, we test it out of its comfort zone through the mean streets of central London. And it does remarkably well! Even with two-man up, the RT glides through the streets, quite, composed and with a subtle presence.
