My New Ride

So, I had a 2004 RC and sold it a few years ago. I have been in search of the perfect RC ever since. I found one a few weeks ago in Huntsville and made the drive in the middle of the night to pick it up. I bought it with 10k on it and basically bone stock except for the smoke screen. I added grips, protons, short levers, undertail, rim stripes, Scotts damper, new tires and just got my Yosh last night.
