Thanks for the welcome guys. This is one of the better forums I have visited, seems to be much less BS here. Not as much hatred running amuck.
Anyways, I just got back form the dealer, all paperwork is done, spare key in my hand. Dyno break-in is scheduled for Tuesday. I ordered AFAM 17/44 (530) conversion. I see no need to waste a perfectly good chain so I stayed 530. This will probably be my only mod as this bike is really my cruising bike. Besides, there is no bike that will ever live up to the RC51 with Sato Banzai's on it anyways. Everything else is just disapointment
I will keep the bike stock (a first for me), just the way Honda intended it. I will get some pics of it with my RC51 (even though the RC is not pretty yet, still have not painted the race plastics).
Oh yeah, I also bought a new Shoei X-11 (metallic silver) today. My last helmet was an Arai Quantum 2 which I will never forget as it saved my noggin at the track. Too bad it had to go to helmet heaven. I have found the Shoei's fit me better. That was my first and only Arai.
My 1st ever track day
A couple more (my technique is much better now)

The RC after:
My Dad's 1982 V45 Sabre. This was a father's day gift last year. My dad sold the bike to my brother (the one who just bought a 919). I bought it back and shipped to AZ from NY
