New Guy in Colorado - SP1

So I finally pulled the trigger on an RC51. Been one of my favorite bikes for a long time and a clean one came up and had to jump on it. Now I just have to sell my R1. It's a 2000 RC with 28k miles on it, super clean with 2 Bros slipons. I'm stoked to finally have one and looking forward to learning more about this bike. Already have some mods planned out. Here's a couple pictures I took on a ride last Monday.

Congrats with your new bike... You will surely enjoy the the torque it offers plus the sound it produces.

Welcome! I had my rc out in Colorado a couple of years ago. Bike loved the roads but hated the elevation. Spent most the trip running between 220 and 230 degrees.

2015 June BOTM Winner

Still debating on whether to use my power of invisibility for good or evil

Thanks for the welcome guys! It's definitely a change from the R1, but I'm loving it so far. Can't get over the sound of it! Already ordered block off plates and the flapper valve cover. PC5 and braided lines are up next! Updated the first post with attached pictures.

A bit late, but welcome anyway.

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