What sized bikes did you start out on?

I personally learned to ride on a AMF-HARLEY DAVIDSON 125.

From there I went to a 250 Susi
Then a 350 Susi
550 Susi
700 Susi
750 Susi
then an SP2

If your RC51 doesn't bring you to your knees, you are not a righteous man...lol.

nwall, you don't hear of an RC51 being a fella's first street bike much.

If your RC51 doesn't bring you to your knees, you are not a righteous man...lol.
