    Just took RT for Spin

    58 Degrees here in Seattle and sunny today!

    RT started on 1st crank in a couple a months and ran like a charm!

    Had a blast!

    You call your bike RT?
    I call my bike RT. "Come on, RT, let's go for a ride".
    "Ok, RT, we have to leave now".
    "Ah, RT, we shall rest for the night now".
    I don't know if you should also call your bike RT.
    Since you go by Atomicman, I have decided to name your bike Electron for you.
    It is a good name, and hopefully, your bike will wear it in good health.

    RE: Just took RT for Spin

    We had 60 today for work. We get cold and rainy for Saturday and just plain cold for Sunday. Cold being a high of low 40s which is cold for the upstate. Glad you got to ride! As much as I complain about the weather, I did get to ride last Saturday and Sunday.

    I rode my RT today too!

    Rode my RT to and from work and errands after work.
    RT (Althea) ran awesome as always but pissy as we only went 70 miles and lots of city traffic. That bike hates stop an go.
    Rode my TW200 for work as I do everyday. That bike never complains, never ceases to amaze.
    Rode my Airhead yesterday, love the old girl but damn the RT is so superior in every way.
    Been 70+ here on the Left Central Coast.

    Got mine out for a bit today. Started at 18F and ended at 22F - had to run the grips and seat on "high" for a few minutes!

    I rode my RT today as well, but here in New Orleans, it was a 52f.... Greetings from the MV forum Oldspice! Do you still have your MP3?

    Go South!

    Just go south for the winter and you can ride your RT every day.

    Yep, It Is Time To Ride

    In Northern California we only lay the RT's up for a couple months. I took RT out for a ride yesterday and I had fun. It is always amazing to me when I haven't been out riding for a while how much fun these bikes are.
    I don't remember the tire nibble vibratiion/noise being this bad. It is time for another set of PR2's, or is it time for PR3's?
    What ever Michelin is offering this year I am on my way.
    Have fun! Be Safe!

    I rode the gal to work today, it was 27 when I left but it was worth the mid 50s ride home. I'm amazed at the short amount of time I can ride with the seat and grips on level 2. I haven't connected my heated gear since I haven't ridden very far this winter.

    Hi Atomicman

    I lived in Seattle for 18 years and think I saw the sun 5 times. Good for you!
