Welcome...now you know what separates a motorcycle from a RC51/SP

Hi Cheesy

I'm a Brit but not too near London.

It's a very minor downer of the SP-1 that you tend to do your riding close (a tankful?) to home, unless you have a trailer.

I've had my "Beast" for over 4 years now and still haven't lost either the "this is amazing (& Scary!) to ride" or the "Wow, she is SO beautiful to look at from any angle" feelings.

Welcome to the forum, dude

Thanks all, just fitted a power commander and mapped it!!!! what a difference!! Im gonna enjoy this, and the feeling of standing in the garage with a laptop on the seat, well i guess im just a bit sad but it felt good!! GEEK!!

The bike seems even faster now, crappy ZZR1100, mr RC51 goes round corners FAST!!

Thanks for the welcome all, gonna enjoy the summer while its herw.

Regards

Cheesy

Welcome to RCdom Cheesy. I'm fair new to them meself but really like mine. I know a few Brits from other forums and I'll ask around to see if there's any RC's near ya. Keep the chicken strips skinny

Duct tape can't fix stupid...but it sure helps muffle the sound

Hey CheesyLobster, these friggn bikes are infectious, aren't they? The longer I have mine the more it grows on me. Everyone, me included, mentions at some point, what charachter the RC51 has, that grin on your face! And yea, wait till bike nite, or next time you roll up on a harley or some other hardcore cruiser. Something about the RC51 gets instant credibility.
Welcome.
