2 RC51's in less than a week!

I had just recently bought my 2004 Nicky Hayden RC last Tuesday and took it out over the weekend on a 140 Mile ride with some friends. My best friend who also happen to go riding was on his Kawi 636 and found someone that wanted to trade his 2002 RC51 for his 636. That deal went down last night. Needless to say, my friend Rus and I are new to the RC51 world and we love it so far! These bikes are just true beast's that the good lord and satan himself have come together to create. I love my RC and I am sure I will for years to come!

Congrats, and welcome! When you get comfortable with her, you'll REALLY appreciate the machine for what it is and what it means to RC

Truely, you are correct- A Beast.. And as Rossi does, I squat(to stretch) and pray, to the Lord for protection, an a clear mind/while on the bike. - THOU- Satan rises up in me, as the ignition hits a pulse.. And the DEMON rides again......
Welcome to the world of temptation.. Ride safe..

I just put down a deposit on my 2004 RC Nicky Hayden.... It's 11 hours away though so will be picking it up in a few weeks. Stoked!

The bike's got ~15k miles so I'm thinking about having the valves adjusted while she's waiting for me to scoop her sexy a$$ up.

Anyone have recommendations on other dealer type service stuff I could have done over the next few weeks before picking her up? (she's in GA and I'm in DC)
