Smile newrider

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.

Good luck with your purchase.
Take good care of it and it will be a fond memory when you're old.
Try to always think with the big head and not the small.
Ramp up your skills and don't try to rider over your head until more experienced.
And post some photos to share!

Good luck young man and take it easy. I found the Rc51 an easy bike to ride, I only ride in good weather so here in England I dont have many miles under my belt but what does hold me back sometimes is knowing how much it will cost to fix it!
My point is have a good time we all have our limits!
