    Here is a pic of the one I owned.



    Tubeless spoke rims. Real paint stripe on tank. Aeroflow shield and lower faring.

    Sold it to a guy in NW Arkansas for $3K.

    He was happy to get it and I got back my purchase price. Win/Win

    I love all the 1100's because I can maintain them myself. A big plus for me when it comes to bike ownership.

    And the R is so much easier to work on because you don't have to remove all the tupperware that's on my RT!
    I used to post here, but now I don't.

    Finally got the R11R, 2,100 miles, Reynolds rack, 52 ltr. Givi trunk, corbin leather seat. Changed all the fluids, set (checked) the valves, replaced the fuel lines. Winter project is the K 75 C bar conversion.

    If those are the original tires, keep an eye on them for cracking and be careful, especially in the wet.

    The new Pilot Road 3's are in the garage already. The tires still look new, no cracks, weather checks, leaks, etc. but at 19+ years old? The bike lived it's entire sedate life in my brother in law's heated garage. Next step get rid of the Corbin and get a Russell. The ABS works great with a new battery, has the extra clock and tach package, heated grips, going out to west next week to give it a real ride.
