    I don't have a 2014 model, so I don't have a vested interest in this, but I'm curious why wouldn't they have discussed the repair timing with the dealers, have the dealers tell them I sold this...

    I've seen a few posts that people have attached the price matrix, but I've not looked at it yet. I have not even had the chance to demo the new RT yet. The only thing that I think might be an issue...

    I was considering the new RT, and was going to test drive one on the day my dealer was sent the stop ride notice in early June. Since the recall only affects the ESA equipped bikes, and if I'd owned...

    I'm a flatlander from the Toledo, Ohio area. I would agree that on the north side of the state, that 30 would be the most scenic, for the longer, but it will take you a lot more time as there is...

    Possible speaker idea for 2005 R1200rt

    Hey all, I want some opinions on adding speakers to an R1200rt. My bike doesn't have speakers and the stock ones for the bike are way over priced for low sound quality they have. I don't have the...

    Having different material on each seat wouldn't bother me. I was worried if the Sargent front seat would be to low in the back with the stock rear, and leave too much of a gap.

    Hey Tony, thankyou for taking the time to do that. It doesn't look bad at all with the stock rear. I think I will go ahead and order one. I trust you are happy with the seat.

    Other then used as a defensive weapon, will the tire iron that came with the tool kit serve any purpose for an R1200rt on the road?
