Got my 04 RC51 last month. Only ridden it a couple times now but it does not disappoint. Its as fun as it looks! I live in southern Arizona so the riding never has to stop. I started riding about 6 years ago and started on an 01 SV650, then moved to an 03 GSXR600, and then to an 05 FZ1. I still have the FZ1 only because I don't want to put a ton of miles on my new RC (it only has 4000 miles) and also the FZ1 is waaaay more comfortable. Glad to be part of the site. I've already found lots of good info and everybody seems great. Happy riding!!!
