New Guy IL

Hi all. I am new to the forum. Joined earlier this year but haven't been on much. I am a big RC fan!
Had Harleys when I was younger, then switched to sport bikes/sport touring (Katana, VFR, Triumph Sprint ST). Bought my first RC51 (2000) this year and then liked it so much that I drove from IL to NC to trade the Triumph for a 2003 RC51 so now I have 2.
Looking forward to learning more and updating, improving these bikes. Can't really imagine having much more fun than I have so far. Rode the 2000 to Indy for the Indy GP, did the track lap . Thanks for the add!
