New to RT's

Just bought an '05 a few weeks back and got drawn in by a tire thread, so I thought I might say hi. Love the bike so far (seat height is a bit short) but have had a blast riding so far. Took the bike up into the mountains to give those chickens strips a quick cure, I may have overdone it?

Any threads or info I need to pay attention to would be welcome?

Hi new to the BMW line, I saw a few threads that had technical info. You said you are a bit tall for the RT, As. A verically challenges person, may I ask how tall you are?

Re: New to RT's

Welcome, both of you!


Can I assume that you have the seat adjusted to the high position?
