Interestingly and won't say who and at what dealer told me: 1. K1600b top speed was limited due to increased vibrations at speeds over 120MPH and poor aerodynamics; 2. R-nine-T is an oilhead because of excess oilhead engines made. Any of it true?...

Moshe and realshelby, Your comments are absolutely valid. I don't think the non-GT is 'unsuitable' for our RTs, especially for those of us who ride solo 100-percent of the time. In fact, I'd postulate we COULD run pure sport tires on our bikes. I would hazard to guess a few ...

Valdi has a police bike torn apart. I don't think he has a regular one. I spent about 45 minutes with him yesterday. Great guy. He set me up with a used horn (mine was gone), new plugs, air filter, grips, etc. He's got a factory low front seat that I need to grab next week....

I looked them over pretty good at the Chicago Motorcycle show. I've *never* been even slightly attracted to Goldwings, but this ain't your Daddy's Goldwing. Fairly impressive bike. I'd certainly consider it.. alot of features and I've always felt that Japanese bikes have better ...
