John,

I'll be interested to hear your thoughts after you have put a few thousand miles on it. That bike is on my short list.

Not a thousand yet about 200 so far. I like the basic of it. No radio, gps, fuel gauge, fairing, just a motor and seat. The weight/power ratio is awesome even with two up, passing power.

Ha! I did that once along with my boat during the "Great Divorce Fire Sale" of '06. Never did miss her much, but I really missed the bike and the boat!

My garage will never be empty again as long as I can ride. My RT fits me just about perfectly and is always waiting to go!

Ride Safe,

Bob
