For those of you who don't know, I am 16. When people hear this all of a sudden its you're an idiot your gonna crash etc. I love the looks of the rc51, ive ridden it several times now and it is a real good bike. I started on a 1100 gold wing, which is far different than the rc, but i got the weight part down. I feel 100 percent that I'm ready for the rc, it's not as scary as people say. I do KNOW I am going to respect it. Both wheels on the ground at all times, Speedometer won't read over the speed limit, and I know this all sounds like bull shit because I am 16. I think i can do it, peer pressure is very hard to resist at my age, but I'm up for it. I'm getting my own rc on monday, august 9th. I have all the gear for it, I'll put up some pics.
