Luckyadam12 RC51

So I was looking around at 'What did you do to your RC51 today' thread and someone asked a question and quoted an old post. I though, hey cool, those are the same tail lights I had on mine... next picture, that license plate...
THAT'S MY BIKE!

I didn't realize the guy I bought it from was on here 'fail wagon'.
We talked about the local forum, but he didn't mention this one.

I had to look him up and see his posts... or lack of, only ten.

I did run across a couple old pictures of my bike though!
How cool is that!?!?

So now, I've decided to jump on the band wagon, lol. Tomorrow, I'll post up some old pictures, and start keeping track.

How amazing would it be to find the first owner on here too?!

NEXT DAY - First Day Ride

Of course I rode it home the day of purchase, but it was dark. Had to take it back out the follow day.

OH MY, I fell in love with this bike very quickly!!!

First Upgrade 3/5/2013

Some people disagree, but I will never have a bike without one. Watched these things go to work with a buddy of mine right in front of me years ago.
Saved his life.

Headlight Mock Up

Decided to give the headlights a bit more of an aggressive look.
Just playing with ideas.
