Greetings. Newbie saying hello.
Picked-up the RS I have been dreaming about for years this morning. Rode it home about 200 miles from St Augustine to Largo Florida on secondary roads. Rainy when I left, but it cleared-up by afternoon. A bit cold though, with all the evaporation. About fifty degrees.
Bought it from the owner's brother and the manual is still with his brother (he has promised to send along next month when his brother comes home from serving Iraq), so I will have some some questions that will seem obvious.
For instance, I don't think the handlebar warmers work. What's with the dots and what's good to look for?
Which shop manual is the better?
Is touch-up paint available?
And, yes, I do know how to use the search button.
Good-night Scarlet. Tomorrow is another day.
