You being 140 pounds has nothing to do with how agile a bike like the RC is. The RC is a race bike, and is made to turn. Ive seen people smaller then you ride the RC like its a peddle bike. And also another thing, the vtwins (RC,998,Mille) have a great top end. The Vtwin is designed for exit speed/torque out of corners, thats where they will pull on a inline 4.Meh2u said:The part I'm worried about is being difficult to turn, I'm only about 140 pounds and not very strong so an agile bike is very important. I will probably wait and buy one as a 2nd bike to accompany my 636. I'm more into torque than top end, I'd rather be able to accelerate quickly at 20mph than 50 like the 636.
It's hard to explain, especially since I try to NOT ride as spirited as I did with my past bikes. The RC reminds me of some chick that is a head case when it comes to the bedroom. She wants you to get on her harder and harder, and she screams for more, but in the back of your mind, you know she's one BAD bitch, and if you go too far or disrespect her, she will throw you off and kill you.Josh D - That is perhaps the best explanation of how tthe RC-51 makes you feel that I have EVER heard! nfloor And it couldn't be more true! But at 17, I hope our young friend hasn't experienced any chicks like that for a frame of reference. And hopefully he never will.
