New guy from the UK

Hi everyone, I'm Matt, I'm 23 and from Stevenage in the UK (about half an hour north of London).

This is my first twin and I love it! I've had her about 2 weeks now and I've ridden her every day. I can't get enough.

Welcome Matt!!

There are a few other of your countrymen on this site that chime in occasionally.
I'm guessing your good riding weather is drawing to a close?

Hello Mattymc;
Welcome to the world of the fabulous RC51 (Sp1/Sp2) I think at long last riders everywhere are appreciating what amazing machines these are and a real steal at 2nd hand prices, even if they have risen a bit lately.
I have owned an Sp2 since it was first introduced into the U.K., 2002 and would NEVER part with it. At the moment it's being looked after by a friend while I'm out of the country. Spent around 2.5k over the years on upgrades etc. the most expensive being new rear shock after 30k but don't regret onee penny of it, got to keep it up to scratch.
Can't wait for next Summer when I'll be back to ride it again.
Ride carefully (well, not too carefully)
