sold my 07 R1, pick up my RC51 on SAT!!

my 07 R1 was getting TIRED! i crashed it at willow in 09, pieced it back together but never changed the tank (BIG dent), scratched up sides (it flipped in the rocks), it had 20k on the clock and ive NEVER tuned it and the tires were shot from the last track day i did. So instead of tuning, tires, and tank ($1000+?) i let it go for $4950.

Found a GORGEOUS 04 Hayden with ALL the bells and whistle for $5400! CANT WAIT!!

Given the previous statement on the R1, I can't decide whether to be happy or sad.
I just hope the RC51 fares better.
