Noobie

Hey guys,
I have an 03 SP-2 that I am the 3rd owner of in which I recently made the mistake of taking it to the track for my first Track school day with Frank Kinsey at Roebling Road in Savannah. I ended up going down at the end of the day but managed to take her into the dirt. Thank god for the insurance adjuster being really cool and saving her from a salvage title.
Mods (Which were done before I got her): Leo Vince exhaust (Cut short), Scotts steering dampener, Power Commander (Lowest Setting), Undertail kit, Saito Rearsets, New front sprocket and one hard as crap corbin seat.

My bike is at Wideopen motorsports here in Charleston getting put back together. I am putting a new body kit which is a replica of the 02 WSBK race bike and what ever else I can get away with. She is in good hands since the owner has an identical 03 SP-2.

It has been 9 years since I first saw my first RC51 at the Honda Showroom in Orange CA and after my divorce last year I went out and got my dream bike. Forget the R1, GSX-R, ZX-10 the RC51 is a special bike that the likes of Miguel Duhamel, Nicky Hayden and Colin Edwards graced with their presence and above all else a dream to ride. Not too many bikes get looks like I did at the track when she rolled off the back of my truck and cracked the throttle just once to let my presence known.

Regards,

Ricky Bobby

P.S. I know I will get crap for leaving my kickstand out on the Track Stands.

I'll trade you a very nice stock seat for "one hard as crap corbin seat" straight up.

I may sell it to you for a steal if I like the Sergeant seat.

Sorry Skinny, no go on the seat. The Sergeant seat is just as hard as my Corbin.
