so far..everything look neat..and the sound from the stock exhaust is awesome compared to the stock RC51 and the Factory.

need to find more criminals so that i can buy the akrapovic's carbon fiber race fairing and the race can..


or

buy a fibreglass race fairing and paint it like this..

I wouldn't race a bike like that. I'd just rub it with a diaper all day.

I don't envy you. I just hate you. Jokin, but seriously I want that bike. I have to wait a bit though. I think I would kill myself on that thing or come close to it.

I don't think there's ever been a post by Advocatt that hasn't made me slightly more envious of him than before. Seriously man, you kill me. Awesome bike!

You better hide that thing if you get someone to come look at or buy the RC51. No one will want an old RC51 after they see this sexy machine up close.
