Re: Thinking of the purchase
Gil, just to add some mud, the 2004 is 15 years old, it has an ABS system that is complicated to bleed and prone to failure at old age or poor maintenance. It is Very expensive to repair, most by pass it. And if it does fail the remaining brake power is very limited. This system was on bikes from 02 to 06 and a bit longer on the LT, I think to end of production if I remember correctly. See if you can find a bike 07 or newer RT, maintenance is easier and less expensive. Besides the bike is lighter and a fine touring machine.

I change your tires $40, you buy them on the web.
