Took the old girl out

Managed a few hours out on the bike for the first time in ages.
I honestly had 1 of the best days on a bike. Got to love these RC51's

Here's a small GoPro vid of a local road of me taking it easy.


A few pics

Great that you've finally been able to ride it without having to call assistance!
Looked like a nice day to ride.

Think you may have the wrong person there.
I've never had to call assistance

The weather was great that day with it topping out at 30 deg C. (very rare over here)
It was good to actually feel the tyre dig in.

Now that you mention it, you're right. It's your other countryman Polarbear I was thinking of.

I have a few other video's from later on that day on my favourite roads, but I don't want to post them, as they are a little more erm spirited should I say.

I had a go on my mates Gixxer 750 after that photo was taken, and it did feel a bit gutless compared to the SP1, but once I stopped riding it like a V-Twin or a 1000cc super bike, it really was as quick as I thought it would be.

Agree with Polarbear, the weather over here has been great this summer, I just wish I had more time to make the most of it.
