New victim in Pacific Northwest
Hey there folks,
I live in Portland Oregon and am an old man who has been riding bikes since I was a kid. Until last year, I have never owned a modern bike having an old bevel drive Ducati, a CBX and a Moto Guzzi. Last year I made the jump and purchased a KTM Smt 990; super fun bike.
And that made me want to try a bike with clip ons again as the last bike I owned like that was a 1988 Yamaha FZR 400. Well, I found a pristine 2002 RC51 up in Seattle and brought her home. The original owner did just about every mod that has been discussed on this forum and I am super happy with it. I just love Vee twins and this model hits all the buttons. I just love the sound of it winding up on the open road. I am hoping to meet other owner's and have learned an awful lot already from the great people on this forum. Thanks much!
