First RC51

Hey everybody just introducing myself real quick. Looking forward to learning from everyone experience and opinions!

I have been riding (old hondas) for years. My first bike was a 1982 CB 900F still have it! I haven't been overly thrilled with the new sport bikes and the lack of torque. My old heavy honda has more low end grunt! Picked up a 2001 RC51 SP1 with 25k on the clock and looking forward to wearing out the tires on it.

I post up some pictures tomorrow. Rained all day today, no doubt that was because I picked up a new bike..................sorry about that.

Here is a quick bio of the bike:

2001
High rise exhaust
Jardine Cans (these babies are rude!)
Power Commander USB
Undertail delete (hack job and first thing that needs attention)

Went for a ride with a friend yesterday. It was AWESOME!
