Polarbear

my names gates, i final got hot hold of an rc51 sp2 about a month ago, wanted to just take out a loan about a yr ago but my wifes ultra sensible, so managed to save around £4200, (which is about $7000 in da u.s) and bought my pride and joy.

absolutely loving it, was gonna possibly go for a blade but blades dont have the geardriven cams soundtrack

all i wanna do to it is continue to improve the handling, keep it healthy and maybe get hold of some castrol fairings for it, but all in good time.

Welcome Polarbear, yer in fine company here (don't necessarily mean me ). @ madbuyer, flattery will get you everywhere...and flattery like that will get ye totally sniggered in the right company! cwpSP1, have ye never heard of Crown Royal, Captain's Table or Wisers Deluxe?

Duct tape can't fix stupid...but it sure helps muffle the sound
