Re: Not yet an owner

Scunny1, suggest you don't let her take the training or her garage may fill up with motorcycles! I rode pillion for 15 years and my friend asked me to go to the BRC with her, and that was the end of pillion sitting for me.

Re: Not yet an owner

RTman, I've read the manuel (while sitting on the bike in the garage) and checked this right away.  Can't wait till boots get here, we are taking a trip up to Oregon next month. So excited!

Re: Not yet an owner

I did it! I found a factory lowered 2009 RT and bought it last Sunday. I am on tip toes, but I just ordered a pair of Daytona Lady Pilot boots to give me 2 more inches. I am one happy girl. Plus, my husband liked my bike so much he bid on a 2008 RT and won! Bye-bye Yamahas :-)

Not yet an owner

So, I have only had 2 motorcycles in my 4 years of riding, both Yamaha cruisers. I am now VERY interested in the r1200rt, mainly because i am  a 5'4" female with a 28" inseam and I believe the lower seat on this bike, coupled with it's lighter weight, will work for me. I am on the...
