    My 2005 RT had the same problem. Surprisingly after a bike wash to raise money for a high school cheer squad, the problem cleared up and did not return. Could it have been dirt on the shifter?

    This is similar to an issue I had with my 2005 RT. It ran fine on the way to the office but would not start for the trip home. It turned out to be water in the gasoline.

    I rode my 1989 Gold Wing for 260,000 miles before buying a used 2005 R1200RT. Although the Wing carried its 900 pounds well, the 300 pound lighter RT is definitely more nimble. Moreover, the wider...

    Yes it's a great road. I learned of it from Butler maps. The Bighorn Mountains are awesome. Routes 14 & 14A are great too. I rode them two years ago on my R1200RT.
