Hi all,

Well after the long wait I picked up my RT 2 weeks ago. I am even more convinced now that the move from my Road King to the RT was the right choice. It took me a while to get pictures posted, but I have been doing some riding. I just didn't want to take time to figure out this picture thing. In 2 weeks I have about 1800 miles on the RT and couldn't be happier. Here are a couple of pics.

Yep, Kind of looks like an older Harley I used to have. However in this picture I had washed the RT and the driveway was still wet.

By the way, Does anyone know how to make the photos larger?

Welcome to the forum Jim and congrats on your new ride. Many years ago I used to spend a lot of time in your neck of the woods. You have some great biking roads up there. wave

Congrats. Nice color. Same as mine. smile

Not sure how you posted the pics but you could use photobucket and the pics are sized correctly when you post.

I think the new Overhead cam motor is stunning.

The backrest is made by Bakup backrest. I had it installed before picking up the RT. My wife says it's more comfortable for her than the top case.
