    Helmet lock for 1200 RT

    Does anyone have an idea for a helmet lock for the 1200 RT. The cable-under-the-seat thing is OK but is a bit of a pain, especially when loaded with gear and bags that cover the back half of the...

    It is a great ride and I would recommend going all the way to Natashquan. I did it last year and the roads are fine. No problem getting lodging in hotels up to Baie Comeau and bed and breakfasts or...

    Thanks folks for the good ideas. I am particularly intrigued with the floorboard idea. The RT really is an awesome ride, but I just feel scrunched a bit and maybe it is due to what I am accustomed...

    What is the recommended trickle charger

    I have a 2004 GS ADV and a 2008 1200 RT (my wife's) parked in the garage as I wait for the winter to go away. I have to admit I do little winter prep on the bikes. The garage is semi heated. I do...

    I've done well with Micatech on a good number of bad roads and long trips North (Alaska, Labrador, etc.). What I like about them is that they open from the side. This means that the gear I tie on...

    I too looked at that turn off to the left on my way back from Radisson, but time did not permit. I believe the gravel road is in good condition. It is used by tour buses to take hunters and...

    BTW, if you do plan on going, call the Hydro Quebec visitor center and book your tours ahead. It apparently does get busy at times and it also helps you plan your trip. The tours are free.

    I also love my Micatech's. I have had a set on my 1150 GS Adv for about a year and I have no complaints at all. They have held water tight in a day of "monsoon rain" riding. I have strapped all...
