|rog3775||i have the cam gear mod done on my 51, pulled up to a red light and the guy hangs out the window and says " sounds like your due for an engine rebuild" I said "no thats how its soposed to sound". He looked very confused. Also everyone i work with are harley guys, and they are so quick to point out that i have a head light out. Oh well|

When I stop for gas, its only a matter of time before some tells me I have a headlight out.
I've also had many compliments on the sound (with Sato Banzais) of my bike; even from a few Harley fags.
Nothing like the ole RC. Thank goodness.

He heard the pulses of your RC. He looked at your bike in ignorance, mistaked for an I-4 bike and thought, "no way a bike like that, sounds like that". I have gotten that a couple of times.....Merry CHRIST-mas.........

Never heard THAT before...
It was warm here the last 2 days, so I rode the RC51 yesterday, and the Repsol today. I was topping off the RRs tank and saw a guy at the gas station who asked me if I was riding yesterday but on a different bike. I said, yeah, and he said that he was sitting next to me at a traffic light and while I was sitting there, he thought that something was wrong with his truck. He said that he thought that he had a rod knocking in his engine, and when the light went green and I pulled away, he realized that it was my bike and not his truck! The only thing I can guess is that those Microns were vibrating something on his truck to make him think that there was something wrong.
