Finally got an RC and loving it!!!!!!
Well i've been on bikes since i was 4. Always been a kawasaki guy on the dirt and when i went to street, followed suit. A 2000 ZX6R, then 2003 ZX636, then a 2004 ZX10R. Loved every one of them. Well in 2004 i got hit by an uninsured elderly man and pronounced dead 4 times on the helicopter ride to the hospital. 11 healed broken bones and 14 months of PT later, i was back moving around and working. Couldn't afford a bike due to eating away everything i had to try to survive without working after accident. Well here i am, 7 years later and just picked up a 2001 RC51 with 9500 miles on it for $2000. Swore i would never own anything but a Kawi, however i always said if i did stray it was going to be a RC. I have to say i love this thing more than my 04 ZX10R!!!! The wife and i have put about 1600 miles on it so far and we've had it about 2 and a half weeks. I love this bike. All stock except its got a set of two brothers slip ons and we put a different tail, brake light and flushmounts on the front. More to come!!!!!
