    Thanks Colin.

    I keep having trouble with this goofy grin that pops up while I'm riding!


    It may not go away for awhile.

    Great looking Bike

    "I drove home on Sunday, about 500 miles past Colorado River , Barstow, through 35mph winds, some rain, but arrived home safe and sound. Too much after the sun went down but the rt did a great job getting us there."

    I have just one question:

    Did your wife make the trip with you?? If so she is a real trooper and keeper


    It did rain most of the weekend you made your trip - lucky you did not hit any snow in the higher elevations. Congrats on the new bike

    You are right about the trooper and keeper part. Just not the part about joining me for the ride. She was unable to attend the ride home but she is looking forward to a return to Phoenix for my sons tournament. And a ride to Colorado to see the other college kids. We'll be putting some miles on this baby!

    I had her blessing all the way home and she was not disappointed with the end product.

    New seat!

    Hi,

    I'm back just over a year after hunting down and finding a very nice R1100Rt in Apache Creek, AZ.

    Since then I've put 6500 miles on it with one long trip to Albequerque, NM for the balloon festival and some commuting back and forth to work.

    One set of new tires, I picked the Continental Road Attacks.


    I had one small issue where I may have been riding the rear back with my foot, caused the FD boot to catch fire. Only partially burned the boot. Matt replaced that, replaced the paralever earing, valve adjust and said throttle bodies were very well synched.

    I am buying Russell Day long saddle from Bill in Georgia. He is shipping it out today. My ride to Albequerqe had me saddle squirmin'at about 80 miles. Fortunately we get off every 100 miles for break.

    So I'm excited about the new saddle!

    The RT is a great bike.

    Brad

    This bike started in Peoria Heights, Illinois, Las Vegas, Phoenix, Apache Junction, AZ and now Costa Mesa, CA. Well traveled, low miles.
    GEEE, that bike kinda looks familiar.......
