    yeah i have one. Nothing really to look for, just like any other bike. But it's a diffent ride to boot, you don't feel like your going fast you have to look at your speedo so see that your even hauling ass. smooth power, power everywhere. Turns in like a mother flickable like no other great bike

    heres a video of my on the rc at lvms, i'm getting followed so i'm the bike in front of the cam

    after some suspension work they're great bikes... tons of power down low. like any other liter bike, they are a bit heavy but since ur looking for a track bike it will probably be great.

    couple of guys i ride with have em and besides the shotty oem suspension they love em. absolutly no complaints.

    I have one. Not the best track bike. Heavy, and kinda underpowered by today's standards. That said, I love mine and will never sell it.

    check out speedzilla.com/forums . Lots of fast, old guys on there who know their stuff.

    I like a little weight on a bike. My 06 600rr is to light feels a bit unstable.

    I tried to buy the RC51 but the guy did not have a title for it so I passed on it. I found a 749 and have been thinking of getting that and doing track events with it.
