Well all – I traveled to the Seattle area this last week and found very little activity out on the road. Maybe that had to do with the 29 degree weather. My first three days were spent in Snoqualmie – … Continue reading
In my ongoing pursuit of R12RT’s in the wild, I happen to run across this bike in Santa Cruz at one of the beaches. It was very clean and the rider was well equipped. As usual, I only saw the bike and the gear – no rider to be seen. Of course, this is not an R12RT, but what the heck.
Hope all you Father’s out there had a great day today. Hopefully you spent time with your kids, or possibly had kids old enough to go for a ride.
This weekend my brother spent his day riding. He decided to ride from Los Angeles to Monterey and back. His trip started last Thursday.
Today after the long haul back, he and I spent the evening with our Father. Now the day has come to an end, back to the grind tomorrow.
Enjoy – R12RTRider
To all our fellow riders – we hope you all have a happy and safe Happy Father’s Day. Ride safe and keep your eyes open.

Believe it or not, I have only seen one bike this week. Happen to be driving by a gas station and saw this one…..
Riders – I am considering doing a weekly blog article of R1200RT’s in the wild. The articles would include a piece about the owner, a pic of the bike, and the situation that brought the bike and I together.
I will collect other bits and present it to you all. Hope you enjoy and please provide feedback.
With that – here is my first pic. Unknown is the rider or the info about the bike:
This bike is in Camarillo, CA. It has been here a few times. I think it is between 2009-2011.
Well, that is a start. I will keep my eyes open for the next bike and rider.
After years of riding, we tend to do everything by muscle memory and take everything as second nature. Unfortunately, I motorcycle riding this will get you injured or possibly killed.
Today I was doing my normal surfing of the web looking for interesting articles, and what do you know – bam I find one. The following article link is a must read. This article highlights some of the gear available that can keep you safe.
Remember, we ride motorcycles – 2 wheeled vehicles that require balance, nice roads and for me – nice weather. Any of that goes south, we run the risk of falling.
Read this article and enjoy…..
Happy riding and be safe on the road….
This site is dedicated to the R1200RT, but I decided to add this blog for all of our riders. I test rode the naked Zero S (www.zeromotorcycles.com) bike yesterday. This was my first ever electric bike ride. It was nothing like my expectations.
I was pretty nervous. I had talked to several riders that said the torque on the bike was sick, ie a ton of torque. I thought a quick roll on of the throttle would loop the bike, but this was not the case. Once that was off my mind, all went well and I enjoyed the ride.
My ride was limited. I took the bike out for 15 minutes around the Hollywood area. The motorcycle had great speed, especially in Sport mode. The bike was comfortable and smooth. I was impressed with the total package.
I must admit, this was my first naked bike ride. I was a bit out of place with the rake of the forks and the slightly forward pitch in the seat, but I got used to that pretty quick.
If you get a chance to ride one of these bikes, do it. Not sure if I am ready for this type of bike, but it is very interesting.
Have fun out there and be safe.

Cold Springs Tavern is a must as you progress on the 154. Don’t forget to check out the “Green Bridge.”
