    Default Elmo Has Arrived

    Linda's new 2020 F3L in Magma Red just arrived. We are going to name it Elmo...after the (red) muppet character. We bought an Elmo plush toy to ride behind her on her travels. She thinks it is a beautiful machine. Sitting next to my 2019, the colors are very different. Mine was Phoenix Orange. Magma Red is more orange than red...but we both like the looks.

    This is now our second purchase in a year from iMotorsports. Both times the sale has gone very smooth. All items I requested were completed and so far no glitches of any kind. The new one arrived with 3/4 full gas tank.

    There are some visual differences between the two. The 20 has an audio keyboard right below the gas tank opening. The trunk top is black instead of the same color as the body. I like the two tone effect. The rear trunk looks to be a couple inches shorter than the 19. Linda loves how she sits on the F3. The bars came adjusted a bit lower than mine and I am thinking of dropping mine down too.

    I am currently having some back issues...so once I am up and about, I will add the requisite pictures, including Elmo aboard.

    Farkles to come at first service in a couple months.

    Looks like I will have to change out my signature pictures. All three of the RT's shown have now gone down the road to trade off land.

    I still say whomever it was @ BuRP who named that color was color blind. Cool color, though.

    I'm glad you continue to have success w/iMotorsports. I think, had I gotten someone other than Mike, I would have purchased from them.

    That redundant audio keypad thing is worthless, at least on the RT. I have to look WAY down to see it which means taking my eyes off the road. Maybe it's better on an F3 due to the differently shaped tank. BuRP likes redundancy, I guess. The 2020+ RTs now have THREE different ways to change the volume; joystick, redundant audio controls and they replaced the windscreen up/down switch on the left grip module with yet another volume rocker. Please note, this new volume rocker is ONE INCH below the joystick. They moved the windscreen control to the switch panel on top of the "tank" (you know, where you have to take your eyes off the road to look for it).

    Anyway, congrats on your new horse.

    I saw that on the volume control where the windshield switch was on the RT. Radio very seldom gets used by either of us. We listen to one station only and don't make adjustments while riding either. If it did not come as part of the "L" package, I would not have it.

    I have the tunage on 99% of the time but I can easily change the volume by using the joystick although I don't change the volume much. I change the windscreen height more often as I get warmer or cooler or if I'm behind a vehicle that causes buffeting (like a pick up truck or a semi).

    Congrats on your new arrival, sounds great; altho I do hope you're getting an Elmo helmet for Linda too?

    But re those signature pics - Don't 'change them out' and lose the historical perspective, just add the new machines! There's heaps of room left across the page down there!!

    Was their any negotiating? I was told by them the price is the price and there was a charge of 595 in freight 299 set up and 300 doc . This was Jessica F.

    It's okay. We were both joking about the pics. The back issue is real though.

    Now you have given me a dilemma. I thought I had used all my available space with the signature pictures I now have. If I can do more...that would be great.
