Hello from Virginia

Good Morning, by way of introduction I just learned of this great forum from a riding pal/partner in crime while shopping two days ago for an RT for him! Unfortunately I have no pictures yet- I purchased a 2011 R12rt two months ago, and have been the eager beaver learning all I can, riding nearly every day, short commuting (40 miles) except in snow or ice. So I wanted an all-weather fully faired tourer capable of winter riding----and as in my 35 years of motorcycling I'd never had a bike that shifted on the left, or that made over 65 hp, or that weighed more than 450lbs, I had some serious adjustments to make. It has always been british motorcycles, still a pair of Nortons, but not a match for long distances or cold weather! I particularly like the RT and its fine balance, not to mention the heated grips! Anyway, look forward to participating, thanks for letting me in..
