Back in the RC game!

I haven't been on in a while, mainly because I missed my RC51 every day for the last YEAR... but I traded my Hayabusa in last weekend for my now '05 RC51. I am BACK! Wooooooo

I look forward to catching up on the latest talk and tech, and please hit me up anytime there is a Southern California event...

-RuZ





P.S. - For those of you thinking about selling your RC... DON'T!!!!!

nice post mate, so in what ways do you prefer the rc to the busa?

The V-twin sound, the low-end and consistent power throughout the band, riding position, the fact that not everyone and their brother owns one... It's nimble (comparatively) nature...

Sometimes it's hard to articulate how a bike just 'fits' you- because the RC certainly isn't the lightest or the fastest.. but neither am I!

Welcome back...I'm in the same boat. I don't need the latest/greatest/fastest and/or the most horsepower, I need the bike that fits me and makes me grin from ear to ear whilst I ride.

That my friends is the RC.

It was a 2006 with a hair over 10k miles. Pristine condition. Great bike, just not the perfect fit.

There is just something about these bikes! Love the black! I have a 12 busa along with my rc and I wouldn't give either of them up. Both great bikes, but the rc is a conversation piece all in it's own.
