    It doesn't latch. It stays popped open. I don't care if it locks. I agree it's not secure, locked or not. I just want to get it latched and forget it.

    I am not getting rid of the RT, I just want a second one. The wife wants to ride alone, not two up. I think I will wait to buy a used RT or maybe F3. I just don't think I would be happy with a GS.
