Recently joined the forum and picked up a new 2022 a few days ago. Was hoping it would be wearing the Michelin Road 5 tires but unfortunately it was shod with Metzlers.

Well, if you're doing it right, you'll burn those tires off quickly, and then you can mount your Road 5's.😁😎 (Or, if you're really serious, just put on the 5's, and sell off the new Metzlers.)

I loved the Metzlers I had, back on the 2005 hexhead RT. Terrific handling tires that lasted about 5K miles. I think I got something like 15K miles plus, with the early generation Michelin Roads. Handling after the soft outer layer wears out kind of sucks, but then again, I was pounding California freeway miles back then, so it didn't really matter.

Pretty little bike. Congrats! Wishing you many safe, fun miles on your new toy.

Hello from Christchurch, New Zealand.

I am thrilled to have just got this 2022 RT. It replaces a T120 Bonneville, and joins an RE Himalayan in my garage,

Looking forward to being part of the community for these awesome bikes.

Welcome!!! Nice bike.

I graduated from Canterbury in 1968, and so had lived in the beautiful Christchurch for a few years. Wellington is still my "home" in NZ though.
