My riding season is over for awhile

Just traded my 2016 RGU for a 2019 RGU silver flux and black fusion but just got two new knees on tuesday. I guess it will give me time to do the SE torqee cam and some handlebars. Im either going with factory 47 14" rivera bar or KST straight jackets in input the bars would be appreciated.

Also not smart enough to post pictures of my new bike you'll just half to take my word on the new bike.

Thanks DUSTOFF

Nice man, enjoy the new ride when the time is right! What kind of deal did you swing if you don't mind the question.

Decent trade for my 2016 $17,500 and MSRP on the 2019. And on knees both total knee replacements, i had my hip replaced in 2017. I guess 28 years in the army and now as a survival instructor for it takes a toll. Any suggestions on bars?

The plus side, new knees and time to get you bike ready for better weather.

Follow the exercise program and you will be fine
As far as bars I just installed KST straight jackets no need for wire/cable extensions and so far I am loving them

Got 12" Factory 47 bars on my '15. My suggestion is figure out what you want and do the research. When Black Friday hits you will more than likely find a much better deal. Good luck with the knees and take care!

Silver Flux/Black Fuse

That Silver Flux/Black Fuse color scheme is NOT easy to get. I couldn't find one w/in 1000 mi. Local dealers said that other dealers will not trade them because they are so hard to get. Glad you got one, enjoy

Thanks i really like it. I was able to put 2100 miles on it in 40 day before my bilator knee replacement. It will make for good motivavtion to do my rehab so i can get back on the bike. I do miss my superior blue 2016 RGU tho.
