1200RT Adaptability?

HI Friends, I love the riding position of my 06 1200GS. I am currently looking at buying an 05 RT However... It feels cramped to me. The Rick Mayer saddle puts me in one position with no adaptability. I know that I can play with this. The real issue is the bars. I think I would be able to raise them, but it also feels to me that I would want them pushed away from me a bit to get a more spacious feel while still being upright (like the GS). I guess my question is, can I bring this bike to more of a GS riding position? On another note, this is a pretty well sorted out RT, and well maintained with 30K on clock. I hesitate because of the potential Final Drive issues that I have read about, (and experienced with my 06 GS. However, I could probably walk away with this for $6500 which seems like a good price to me. Any thoughts? Thanks for your attention forum. Jason
