Okay I am really starting to ride the RC hard on the hilly backroads in my area of Pennsylvania.Just a background I have a Ducati 748, a 900ss and a SV650 that I ride regularly I had an FZR600 and a CBR900RR. I have to say this bike is as fun and probably more fun than any of them, I find myself going to it all the time now. Even though I am doing the rear shock and front forks soon, for my weight and size (155 lbs) I find it to be very stable and we have some very bumpy roads around here. What amazes me is the corner speeds and how fast it turns in. These really are fantastic bikes. I am not one to hard brake I typically get my corner speed by engine braking and some light hand brake so I am not really testing the brakes but when I come in too hot they are not bad, unlike others I think I will keep the ABS even though I am old school and prefer no rider aids. I have not even broken in the engine but can easily maintain 70 to 75 without going to the breaking in RPM. Hopefully she won't break! Just wanted to rave a little.
