    Had my first longer than normal ride today. I went from home in Woodinville, near Seattle and over HWY 2 to Leavenworth. Steven's pass was a bit cloudy and foggy, and about 40 degrees at the top. I...

    2011 r1200rt

    Was looking at that smugglers setup today. I am going to buy a new seat, and as good as Russel's look, I'd like to retain my original pan. (I know, I'll probably never use it again, it's just a...

    Hey Jon, glad you saw some value in this option as well! It actually does have the means to make a call from the road. I have made a call on the road going about 35 and my wife was able to hear it...

    Hi Mark, yes they do fit under the helmet quite nicely. They are very small, at least compared to most that I've seen. I have not taken a long ride since acquiring the system, but so far so good. I...
  7. Bluetooth setup on 2011 1200RT

    Warm up time on a R1200RT

    I am wondering how much time a bike should warm up before riding. I have seen no more than 2 minutes, and I've heard more. Obviously some common sense has to be thrown in, but being in Seattle, we...
  11. pricing

    Hello Jon, no they didn't have pricing yet. (I did ask.) I suspect it will be more than I want to pay.....but they'll get my money. I haven't ridden bikes with helmet audio before, so hard wires, or...

    Thanks Bluegrass, I am having lots of fun searching the forum for different ideas! The truth is that I'm going to have to settle for just "petting" RT for a while as my piggy bank is empty. However,...
