    Question

    I found a 2001 RT with only 9,000 miles, super clean, new radials, new fuel pump/filter, new battery, fresh fluids, etc. but pretty plain (no farkles). Heated grips, ABS, RID, but I think this was all standard stuff.
    Is it worth $3,500
    I'm old school and like the non servo brakes and the non hydraulic clutch.

    What a great find. Hard to believe that a nearly twenty year old bike has only 9,000 miles. It will probably need some upgrades that are common corrections for the 1100RT. You should start a new post for that. The 1100RT is very maintenance friendly for the DIY owner. Once you get comfortable with removing the fairing and then replacing it. Assuming the condition is on par with the mileage, you paid what itís worth.
    Enjoy your RT.

    Congrats!
    Heads up - if it has the original OE rubber brake lines replace them with SS Teflon ones before riding.
    This vintage is very failure prone.

    Also, pay close attention when attaching the side cases. It's possible to mount them with the forward tab not properly engaged, which will result in the case falling off, probably on the freeway.

    Only if you ride on the freeway. Otherwise, it will fall off on a state highway, local street, or long driveway.
