Hello from south Louisiana

I'm very happy to own another RC...

Many, many years ago I had an RC. It was the first bike I owned. She and I had some great time together. Then in 2007 when I moved to Atlanta some donkey stole her.

Since then I have owned several different bikes and sold my last one (2005 R1) in 2012.

The other day I saw a beautiful RC looking for a new home and was able to buy it.

I don't plan on changing much about her other than upgrading lights (HID's, turn signal and tail lights) and adding a USB port to charge my phone and hack into the matrix.

Congratulations on the very pristine & a beautiful looking bike, Shake_Bake.
Don't you just love them silver rims ?!?
Still in the South I assume, based upon your screen name.
I just tried that recipe once, 'though.

Take Care.

Welcome aboard and congrats on the RC. I'm not sure if I like the twist of the 03 paint scheme, it looks good but it still looks wrong:what:

Welcome.

Odd coincidence is I was traveling to Road Atlanta and someone from Atlanta tried to steal my RC out of my truck bed when I stopped at a motel...bastids!
