I'm spending some time on the forum and came across this thread that I started. I figure I'll give an update. I sold the RT and got the Thunderbird ABS. I absolutely love it. I added the longhaul seat, Rivco risers, floorboards, tall and medium shields, bags and quick release brackets, moto lites, passenger floorboards, rider and passenger backrest. I just ordered hogslayers to give it a little more sound. I couldn't be happier. As it starts to turn cold I know I'll miss the adjustable shield, fairing, heated grips and heated seat of the RT. But then again, as much as I enjoy riding I really don't ride when it gets cold. The guy I sold my RT loves it but the last I heard he was having electrical problems with it. It's disappointing that a bike like that is so trouble prone.
