Let's see your RS!

Sure, I know there are threads here for airheads, but there are no specific threads for the redoubtable RS. How about posting a pic? I'll start with a photo of my Havana Gold '78. Photo was taken about one week ago on Skyline Drive in Canon City, Colorado. I rode the ol' girl down to Texas. I am now in the hill country.

We could make it a Gold Metallic thread?

Post Iron Butt ride, back in the day...



This was taken on the Going to the Sun Road in Glacier National Park, the last day it was open for the season. I had the place mostly to myself.

Here's my '81 on a day trip to the Grand Canyon last year. Bought it 3 years ago w/ about 40k miles on it. Up to about 60k now and running strong. Love this bike.

Anyone with an RS want a tank bra? It's in good shape...free (if you pay shipping) to a good RS home! Has a pocket on each side big enough for a pack of smokes...I don't smoke but good size relation.

Some one should jump on this! Free no less. I would, but I am traveling and actually have a tank bra. Very generous. On a side note, I left Colorado in cool weather and rode 900 plus miles on my '78 RS in the first 24 hours. It makes me realize an Iron Butt is not that hard. I was just dinkin' along mostly. And old bikes such as my '78 will go the distance. Of course, I already knew that.
