  • First decent ride

    ...since I’ve purchased my R*. Went for a 300+ mile ride yesterday with a couple of buddies. Before you get to jelious, the ride started out about 40 degrees Fahrenheit... Yikes! Not my ideal riding weather. It got about 10 degrees warmer and the sun came out for about an hour before it set. We were out from about 8 am to 8 pm, including eats and breaks. The roadie performed flawlessly! We were into gravel roads, mud (not what i signed up for), twistys and freeway tarmac. From putting around to 75 MPH. Not a hitch, i was very impressed.

    They are great riding cheap reliable bikes. You should look into a Roadwing rear shock, ED Big Touring seat for the best comfort...

      Is there anyway to get into a more comfy saddle than $700 upgrade?

      I got my Ed Big Tour right here on the RSC Classifieds $240.00 and not a single flaw on it.

    Yeah, i did notice the rear-end (mine) was not the most comfortable, was squirming a bit. And i’ve noticed both the front and rear suspension sucks! LOL I think i’ll Tackle the front suspension first since it’s cheaper...

      $350 for either a solo ED seat or Ultimate seat. Save $100 on an ED Big Touring if you buy their cover and foam and upholster your own seat pan. I like my Ultimate. At 180 pounds, I bottomed out on the standard ED.

          Last time!

          Try an Ultimate or Mustang seat,if you dont like it they allow you to return it for a full refund in x-amount of time
          (2-3wks) post delivery.

          Both of those seats are good comfy seats vs a stock R* Seat and you have nothing to loose with the ability to return them for a full refund
          if you don't like either of them.

          Let us know which every seat you decide to chk out and if you like it or not.

          Good Luck.

          Scott

            How tall are you? ED Big Touring sets you up and back.

              I'll second the Ed Big Tour. I'm 5'11'' and 315 pounds. There's one on my bike in this pic.
