That is a sharp looking bike.

Darth Vader would buy it for certain.

Look at the investment possibility though: This might be the last iteration of the Camhead engine and air/oil cooled boxer RT. That might explain all the black. Requiem for a legend.

I've been debating an RT purchase for awhile, but have not been in a big hurry. I will buy one of the camheads, 2011+ at some point. Perhaps a fly and ride from AZ?

This specific post was really just about the 90th anniversary edition, which is gorgeous. I need to talk to the local dealer to see how these are going to be optioned out; can I get it without the stereo, ESA, TPM and other gadgets that will break or will it only be available with everything. I'm very tempted to buy the last of the air cooled boxers.

I really love the RT, but after taking a demo on a Tiger Explorer, I keep thinking a bike as solid as the RT with an engine like the Triumph Triple would be a real winner. The new Trophy will be big competition for the RT, but just from the photos, you can tell the RT has sorted out details better than the Triumph - look at the audio controls, for example. I am waiting to ride the Trophy before committing to the RT.

I wish that the stereo multi control thing on the left grip could be shut off after use.I find the volume or stations change quite often when turning or using the directional switch.I still like the bike alot,just a few little things that could use some tweaking.

Thumb 90th Edition

Well ive only got 3700 miles on my 2012 RT but I think Im going to have to have that 90th Edition. I love black motorcycles and if I could have had one in 2012 I would have had one. The gold accents are very cool. Im going to need to have a black topbox and a black Wonderlich luggage rack.

Ive emailed my dealer to see when they will be available and what its going to cost me. A fellow in the office is looking for an RT so maybe he will want mine oterwise ill be trading it in.

I like the badge on the tripple clamp. I could really make room for one of these.

I stopped by the local dealer yesterday. Surprisingly, the 90th anniversary is a simple color option package. $595 (I think it was that much) with no other option requirements. Tempting.

Pity my theoretical is already America bound.

Offroad RT?

Do you ever ride your RT down the dirt road?


We've been known to travel on the occasional gravel or broken pavement back road, and some guys think we're nutz.....

I just came from the garage, where I had to use the shop vac to suck the little gravel from the airbox....
and knock a bunch of sand outta the air cleaner.....that's what got me to pondering this

Sure, I've taken my RT on many fire roads and some dirt. My RT has seen gravel, broken pavement, dirt, rocks, a dry lakebed, etc. Longest dirt ride has been 10 miles of rocks, ruts, with dirt before finding pavement again.

I ride with a guy who takes his 2009 R1200R offroad into some pretty hairy stuff. Last trip in PA we ventured into Bald Eagle State Forest, with his wife riding pillion and full luggage. Unfortunately a crushed oil filter resulted in a several hour delay... could'a been worse.

Although not being an RT owner, I've not peeked at the under-belly, but I'd guess that good advice might be: don't stray too far into the woods without protection!
