Mine is to keep my eyes open and not be fooled by much. Getting this RC 51 has been a nice distraction for me. It has rekindled a love for building a worthy machine and in doing so, spitting in the face of age and embracing power and speed once more. But like many, the bike has it's purpose and I believe 2014 just might require such a machine to keep one "mobile" and "hard to catch" in a world of chaotic senselessness.

If your RC51 doesn't bring you to your knees, you are not a righteous man...lol.

I'm keeping it simple, going to try to stop drinking pop. We'll see how that goes.

I'm planning to take more holiday time...I always seem to not take the time and just take the money. I need to think of my sanity more and not bite off so much.

For me:
1) To finally finish assembly of my RC51.
2) To get in better physical shape to ride it.
3) To take more time off to ride it.
4) To install my suspension goodies and exhaust system on my VFR800 and take a tour.

James, My wife still smokes cigs. I am now cig free as of April 24.... 3 years.

I quit cold turkey. It was hard thing to do, more so with the wife still smoking and me still having to smell it all the time.

Since I quit, I feel MUCH better... inside.
