Francois_Dumas Posted May 5, 2006 Share Posted May 5, 2006 .... or 'The end of a Ride'..... or 'Ode to an RT' ...?? Not sure what to name this thread.... not even sure if it belongs in the 'Tales' forum. But I wanted to give our beloved RT's som credit in the forum of a photo series of details, showing what most oweners of these machines love so much.... What do you do at the end of a ride? Yes, yes, get off, I know ! I put the bike on its side stand, behind the house, take the insect spray and wet the front parts. Then I go inside, undress of the sweaty ATGATT, get out of the riding boots. Next I take out all the stuff I lug with me in my cases.. mostly photo gear, drinks, cookies, extra clotehs... Then I clean the bike and my helmet. Then I make some final pictures (which are shown here)... before putting it on its center stand and cover it up till the next ride..... During the ride...... Silent witnesses of getting home safely.... Nina's gear.. What I like so much of this bike in particular.. flowing lines..... ..... and things sticking out..... Even the front looks awesome, although not as futuristic as the new 1200RT..... Not much color on it either, making these little accents all the more interesting... Powerhouse..... And in stark contrast with the previous parts.. the funny rusty little bits at the bottom And no riding without this of course (at least not here...)... Hope I didn't bore you to death with the second love of my life ? Wishing you all a nice and safe weekend with lots of miles to enjoy !! François Link to comment
