Hello.....I am a new owner of a great machine. I have some questions about handle bar risers and seats so am looking forward to being able to access information from other owners. Does anyone who about helibars and Russell seats? Thanks....

Other members do like to know they are welcoming a real person so thanks
for letting us know a little about yourself.:smile: Normally just a few more
posts(count of 3) and the rest of the site will open to you. This is the sites
spambot control. Unfortunately it is needed today. But you have to make 15
posts before you can post pictures. Right or wrong it's considered a privilege
to be able to post pictures. Unless you use Tapatalk which somehow
gets around that restriction.

We are friendly site here. Well, most of us:grin:

In regards to the Russel saddle, it's hard to beat one. However, they are always made
to fit the original owner of said saddle. It may or may not be a good fit for you. But
obviously give it a try. If the original owner is approximately the same size and
build you are, then you have a very good chance it will work for you. I truly like
my Russel saddle. But I'll be honest, it's no better than one of the other possible
replacement saddles like Ultimate, Corbin or Mustang, but all are just a little
different. The only positive about Russel is it will fit the bike perfect because it uses
the OEM pan. All the others might have slight fit issues or at least could have.

Welcome, and congrats on the new RT. What bikes have you ridden before?

I've been riding my new-to-me 2003 R1150RT since last November and loving every minute of it. In fact, every time I ride it I love it a little bit more.

Welcome to a great forum and congrats on a fine choice in the BMW lineup:grin:

I've had 4 'R' series and 1 'K' series and they were all great!:smile:

That new 1250 is supposed to be very FAST:wink2:
