Technically, Johnson Valley Reservoir, on the Fish Lake Loop.  But definitely a spot that's familiar to most anyone who's been to Torrey.

 

Had a trip planned where I was to spend 6 days in and around Torrey....actually was suppose to have checked out of Broken Spur yesterday......and then covid stepped in and snafu'ed things up

 

But on the bright side, got myself a new to me ride with the money I didn't spend ???

More info

 

Sorry for the long delay in my response. I didn’t even know anything about that - or else I would’ve been looking out for it. We were riding a little aggressive in places at the time, if you know what I mean😉. Good to know about this though. Next time I’ll be on the lookout for it👍

‘14 that I got a top case for, but only available in silver. So I bit the bullet and decided to paint it a color I wanted. It was “dark ebony” (appears black in the shade, and dark brown in the sun) and there wasn’t any factory paint available then.

Yeah, I have been meaning to take my RT out and ride it without the cases on, but just never got around to it yet.  Not sure if i would notice any difference in the ride, but guessing someone has. 

 

I have side case crash guards and they can be removed with an allen head bit in no time.   Hmmm, maybe I will give it a try this weekend.   :5146:

 

Thanks for the reminder.   LOL

Does anyone ride much without them?

Pretty much the only time mine come off is riding to or from the dealer for service, on the occasions I have the dealer do the service.

I pretty much ride without the bags so far, having gotten this bike in March of this year. I want the storage for multiple day trips, just haven’t gotten that sort of riding in yet. So, for day rides and commuting (which has gone to nothing since working from home is required) I prefer to leave them off, mainly because I’m not whacking them with my feet getting on and off, and yeah, it’s sleeker without them.

Could not resist any longer. Brought home this distant cousin to my R100S Motorsport.  Now to get some motorsport stripes on the RTW.

Hi Tewks. I totally agree. I have seen quite a few efforts to add some sort of graphics to the white bike, but so far, this is the only one that really seems to compliment the lines of the bike.

Yeah, agree Andy. Well done but I couldn’t find a web site claiming ownership of them. Maybe a one off custom job? :dontknow:

 

Oh if I had that flat paint in that picture above, (forget the name) I’d be 100% all over those graphics! :yes:

Haven't decided if I will use the top case for trips yet, cuz Things haven't settled down as I had hoped. I own a LT and I removed the top case on it and went with the Ft. Worth rack. I like using dry bags on extended trips

Here's my 2020 R1250RT in its natural state, returning to the dealer (5th time) to fix the leaking front Hayes calipers even after they were replaced through the recall. I get amazing mileage though.

I got my '16 RT's 29L top case painted last week.

 

Years ago I painted the top case of my former camhead myself with a kit of sandpaper, primer, paint and clear coat that I bought on Amazon for $60, but this time I decided to get it done professionally at a local body shop -- $110.

 

Still needs a back pad.

My 2015 I purchased almost 3 years ago with 9K on the clock. It’s been a fantastic companion since!
