    I completely agree with you...pre/post-leaf riding is the best. I was on the BRP yesterday (rode from US 276...mile 411.9 to Rt 128-Mt. Mitchell...mile 355) and the day was spectacular...cool,...

    I would agree with this. On the RT clutch job we just did ('00 1100RT with 60K) all the "innards" were bone dry....no sign of any seal failure. So, we left well enough alone.

    I have seen pictures of the Skyway when it would not have been a fun ride. My plan was to start up it and if it got at all dicey, turn around. But crossing several gaps in north Georgia, I had a...

    Rode over Cherohala today and the road was in very good condition...almost completely dry. They have salted the road and there is some evidence of that, but its very light. There's lots of heavy...

    Exactly right.

    You understand the place...up top its a different micro-climate. Tellico Moto is operating on their "Winter hours" and won't be available between now and New Years.

  10. OEM Toolkit on '08 R1200RT...what was it?

    I need to know what a stock OEM toolkit for a 2008 R1200RT contains. If possible a picture of one, including its cover, would be a lot of help.

    Thanks in advance.

    Update

    After the output shaft seal replacement, I returned the bike to my shop and detailed the bike's drive train. In doing so, I attempted to remove every single bit of oil/grunge/grease/dirt that I...

    I currently own both an '06 GS and an '08 RT. If I had to choose between the two, I'd pick the GS. I find the GS more versatile...it's great in the mountains riding twisties, can be taken off road...

    And one final question...

    And is there much content beyond what I'd find in their paper manual? Like videos and/or additional pictures??

    Never mind...I ordered it anyway...it is very cool. Thanks for the tip!
