Babys 14 years old ! !

As I stated in the "what did you do today" thread, my RC is 14 years old this month. I remember the saturday morning when I picked her up. Coming off my 92 ZX-11, which I rode to the dealer, (my friend rode the ZX back) and then riding RC home, what a difference. My immediate thougth was the exhaust, or lack of. I had a 4 into 1 Muzzy on the Kawi and loved how that sounded, so hearing the muffled v-twin thinking - gotta find exhaust for this thing. Later that month we went to Laguna for the bike races - went to the HRC Erion tent in the pits and I see an RC with Erion exhaust. I ask the boys when and where and a few months later, voila, Erion cans on RC. 14 years later and I still get a hard on when I walk in the garage and see RC sitting there waiting for a good romp. Who else out there has been with their RC since day one of picking her up new from the dealer ?

Rubber Side Down fellas ! ! ! Enjoy and be safe !

My 01, turns 14 in November. My RC suffered a bit under previous Owner(s) but I have nursed her back to health.

Similar to Jon, I'm not the first owner (or the 2nd. I may be the third. Or the 4th) Congrats to y'all who are

Mine's 10 years old ... well 10 and a half, as kids like to say; born 10/03.
