Looking forward to hearing what everyone has to say about this bike. I just sold my '08 Yamaha R1 to get this RC51 and my friends think I'm crazy! I saw an '05 for sale at a shop in Maryland and fell in love with it's looks alone. Got to ride an '02 a few days later and simply had a blast! I love the amazing sound of the V-Twin vs. the inline 4. I'm a bit sad at the loss in power compared to my R1 but I'm "completely" satisfied with this bike; the R1 was very uncomfortable for me. Anyway, I hope to hear from you guys soon!
