Hi guys, Sorry if this is TL;DR Whilst I love my F800GS for the adventure riding of dirt roads around Malaysia, I feel there is a hole in my garage that the R3 might fill. Truth be told, a while back I hired a HD Road King for a couple of weeks and enjoyed the big cruiser experience...but there is no way I am buying a pirate ship. I'd never even heard of the R3 until I went to the local dealer to see if I wanted to chop my 800GS for the new Tiger 800XC. I decided it was too close to my current ride...but then I turned around and saw three pre-loved Rocket III and fell in love. Bikes in these parts typically retain their value very well, but a couple of 2008 models with around 30k km on the clock are within my budget having taken the initial depreciation hit. Also, I think the R3 is too big for most locals But I want a big cruiser to get me from Singapore to Thailand in a couple of fast, 10 hour/2000km comfy days. Everything I have read seems to suggest the R3 will do this for me. So, before I walk into the dealer and sound like a complete noob, any tips on what to look out for? One bike has some customization (LED indicators at least) that I need to check out and this is my list of questions: 1) Are the pipes legal (a 2008 bike here needs annual road cert) 2) Any outstanding recalls 3) Any dealer warranty 4) What has been modded 5) Service/repair/maintenance history What else do I need to look out for on a 2008 R3 standard? I've surfed all these forums and it seems like late models are mostly ironed out. Thanks in advance, and hello and all that. You guys are obviously passionate, and I hope to join your ranks in the next few weeks.
