Well, didn't go as smoothly as I thought it would haha. It is a LOT more bike than I expected, and I'm just letting any of those guys out there that want to get one as a first bike... DON'T! haha
I'm 35 yrs old and have been riding all my life. Mostly dirt bikes and quads, but have ridden friends street bikes here and there back in the day.
This RC51 pretty much fell into my lap when I was trying to sell my race quad and took it as a trade.
The back tire badly needs replacing (PO did a bunch of burnouts in his driveway when he knew he wasn't keeping it. Thanks guy!
) So I had already ordered one but was very itchy to try it anyway since we had some nice weather for a change yesterday.
I live on a narrow, windy road that doesn't see much traffic so I decided to take it down the street just to get a little feel for it. I quickly learned it is NOT like ANYTHING I've ever ridden. I don't know if it's because of the flat spot or a trait of the bike, but I found it VERY difficult to turn at slower speeds (ie: 30-ish mph).
It is now parked until the tire gets replaced.
Hopefully that alone cures some of it so I can try again. If not, I guess I'll have to pick up something more tame to get used to. A moped maybe. lol
