    John,

    Sorry to confuse anyone, I was just trying to be funny with the patent thing, I have no intention of applying for a patent! In fact, I really don't think it's all that clever, just something I came...

    Should I patent this?

    Changing tires on the RT has always made me nervous with both wheels off the ground at the same time. I had always used the center stand and a bottle jack under the engine case which was a little...

    I pretty much travel the way Bruce does. I normally have a destination in mind, the question is how I get there. I spend some time with maps and try to find roads and attractions that interest me,...

    I'll be interested in reading your report when you get them installed. I have the same problem (as do probably most RT owners), my solution was to use a piece of thin plastic film covering like the...

    I had a 2007 now a 2011, I occasionally spend a little time with a suitable polish like Simichrome and they clean up nicely without a lot of work. I sort of like the look after the Simichrome...

    Previously had a 2007, now have a 2011. I thought maybe it was just me when I first rode my 2011, but the transmission is definitely better in the 2011. I have not been able to find any references...

    Definitely put Wyoming on your list of places to ride, but plan on at least a week or more from MI to have time to see much. RT66 is good also, but not the wide open spaces of WY, my preference is...

    The light bulb under the oil pan will probably be all you'll need, if anything at all. We used to shove a couple of 100 watt bulbs up the cowl flaps, and unless it was really cold, that kept the oil...
