It's finally happened. My first RC

So I've been a member here for a while as I've always wanted an RC. Finally pulled the trigger on an 03 that is basically stock. Has Jardine pipes but no pc yet. So that's my first steo. I have already added a corbin seat a friend of mine had from his old bike as well as done a few of the "free mods" like the flapper and soft rev mod.cant wait to get a sprocket and chain set as well as my pc. Anyway, super excited to see it in the garage every morning :-)

Yeah and a vortex triple. He did a few things. Bad part is the last owner had it nearly 5 years and only put 1400 miles on it. The oil was rough and the plugs were still stock. Not to mention the chain took hours to bring back to an acceptable condition. She's still far from perfect but so much fun and pretty close to where I want it(for now at least)
