She May Be Old, But Her Look Will Still Get The Blood Pumping

I was at an event on Thursday with well over 100 bikes.
Bikes were all over the spectrum from cruiser, standard, cafe racer, sportbike, to dual sport.

The was an obstacle course, inspection zone, food and fun. Great times!
Oh, and to the point of this thread, a bike contest too...

I didn't wash mine the morning of, nor the day before..
Hell come to think of it, not that week.
Most of you on here know, I'm pretty meticulous though when it comes to cleaning the bike.

Guys were pulling up and breaking out the polish, scrubbing and wiping for 30-40 minutes.
I wasn't going to enter the contest.

I know the bikes flaws, all the scratches and little dings.
So anyway, I pulled up, looked at the other guys and bikes...
I got out my microfiber cloth I use to clean my face shield, and did maybe a ten second wipe down.
I thought to myself, as a looked at the competition, there's no way.
Said screw it, threw my cloth back in the rear cowl, and walked off.

Guess who still won "Best Sport Bike"???

That old girl made me proud!

Thanks guys.
JD9, I appreciate that.


I got a wooden picture frame that says Best Sport Bike
They took a picture there for me to use, but I'll put a better image in it so I don't have to stare at myself everyday, lol.

Awwww, c'mon, it's all because of the undertail!
Bwahahahahaha!

No joke, congrats and nicely done!. These things are still like bees to pollen depending. Lots of affection in knowledgeable bike peeps for the RC51 in any guise. when I rode into that test ride last year, I wasn't even off the bike with my lid off and I was surrounded. I don't go looking for attention, but sometimes it's just feckin cool.

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