They tend to run hot.
Also, they feel quite different from inline four.
Have you ever ridden a V-Twin or RC before?
You might want to do that before you buy one.
And try to get one after 2002.
That's the second generation with last updates.
That was the last time Honda made updates on RC51.

Yep, she's right on the money..........and the RC has side mounted radiators which I think makes things worse.

I never really been on a backseat.
Last year when I got on my friend's ZX6R to get around in CA for MotoGP, I was FREAKING OUT!
I don't know how other girls do that.
It was scary as ...
