    RT is not a RR for sure, none the less it's a great handling and a very good riding steed
    If your new bike has audio, spend some time with dealer learning the radio, setting am/fm/sat channels can be a bit confusing
    Enjoy

    If only we had more paved roads than dirt where I live, an RT would be part of my stable. Enjoy, and post photos when you get it home!

    Congrats! Getting a new bike is an adrenaline rush for sure.
    Motorcycling is my passion because golf is far too dangerous!

    Sorry, it was almost 30 C here in OK today. I don't envy you Canucks with your long winters and Justin Bieber.
