Great pic I'll post as soon as I'm back.

Nice bike Gib! Glad to hear its running tits. I would say that the PC is a MUST HAVE mod for the RC. Without it, it lurches at low rpm and has a snatchy throttle.

I cant commute on the RC though. I travel almost 80mi round trip, and its all freeway. So that pretty much sucks on the wrists and backside

Apparently not that nice, I'm getting embarrassed in the BOTM contest!


But I think you are right, the PC is must for the RC. I don't know why I had a negative connotation with the power commander before, maybe because the only time I saw it was douche bags on craigslist with some modded out bike trying to make it faster.

When in fact the power commander made my RC much much nicer to ride. Exactly like you said, low rpms are smoother. I highly recommend one for those that are on the fence about it.

My trip to work is mostly highway, when I get off my wrists are a bit sore, so I know what you mean. I don't have a corbin seat or anything, so my arse is hurting as well.

Superbike Supply has new PCV's for $269 I believe. But just remember...the PC is only as good as the map

2001 SP1 (sold)
2004 SP2 (properly stored)
2012 Ruckus (stolen)
2015 Grom (under construction)

Weyrauch pronounced (Y Rock)...Rock for short.

I wish I could commute. But it's not really a commute when you work less than 3 minutes from your house. Sometimes I wake up early and go riding before work.
