    Default New User - New RSTD Head

    Just got the title (after all kinds of hoops and red tape) to the 2005 Royal Star Tour Deluxe that I got from my dad for my 30th birthday. Itís a beauty. Only 7000 miles. Iíve had it for 5 months. This is the bike I learned to ride on during summers in college. And now itís mine. Iíve been digging into the forum for the last few days and have gotten some great info: squeaky brakes, seat that hurts my butt (Airhawk is in the mail), etc.

    Any advice for a new convert?

    Nice looking bike. For the seat that hurts, you can try Rick Butler for a fix on it. OH BTW WELCOME to the club you will like it here.

    Ride it and enjoy it. Its a great bike. I just traded my 06 in. I enjoyed it for 13 years and 56 ,000 miles
    I only had 2 issues with it the entire time. the fuel pump,the rear shock went Both were under warranty at the time.
    Other than that problem free
    Put a Battery tender on it. The battery will last a few extra years

    I have a nice Mustang Seat in the garage if it turns out you want an upgrade.

    Nice bike, Love the color
    Be safe and Enjoy It.

    I very much might be. How much are you looking to get for it? Could you send a pic? Thanks for the welcome.

    Thanks! Riding around Atlanta is a bear. When you ride do you usually go north to the mountains? I'm in Mableton and dont mind riding out west and north.

    Also, honestly, Georgia was a cake walk, it was getting everything I needed from South Carolina where it came from that was a pain.

    I don't think Rick Butler does it any longer. I tried reaching out to him last winter never got response.

    PS: Great looking bike. I like the color.

    Riding in Atlanta IS indeed a bear. Where I live it is a 30 or 40 minute ride before I'm out of the city/suburbs/traffic. But yeah....I typically go up north towards Lake Lanier.
    From Mableton you shouldn't have to go far for some nice riding.
