You look like you were in Quebec City. Love that place. I stayed in that castle (Le Hotel Chateau Frontenac) on my honeymoon way back when.

Nothing like strolling down the walled city and stopping for a bucket of mussels and frites and washing it down with some Le Fin du Monde or Maudite beer. Talk about strong!

Fonz, did they add some bodywork or scoops up front by the wheels? It looks different but I can't see exactly what they changed.

My pal HD Mike may soon be BRP Mike. He saw the article over my shoulder and got all excited. I think he's tired of falling over on his Ultra. It would be kinda nice if he got one, next trip to Daytona I could put the kid in that little trailer with his Nintendo.

He DOES know it's allowable to put his foot down at stop-signs and lights, right?

I still think it'd be a hoot to have one. About two years and I should be able to snag one for under $10k with low miles and tons of extras.
I think there should be a performance riding school for these things. Get out on the 90 skid and turn off the traction control. Running Barber, Rd Atl or VIR would be a blast.

Fun, yes! But unlike many automobiles, you can't turn off the traction control.

The added scoops and some chrome trim pieces below the front cargo bin and on the RT-S replaced the higher scoops with lighting. Plus it's all wider by 3 inches.

Kirk said people were putting ECUs from Aprillias or some such bikes.

Yet, some geek will figure out a plug n play box just for that reason. Give it 18 more months.
