Started on a 2001 RC51, moved to an 04 Rc51, Buell 1200 lightning, an HD Sportster 1200r flat track replica, fast forward, marriage and wife claims to wanna ride, so I pick up a 2010 Ducati Multistrada 1200s touring. Great on my older man knees, but wife changed her mind. So Im tracking my multi to see if my fire is there. If it is, an r7 is in my future. I dont need 150 hp … I hope my knees agree. Lol

True Story! I'm husky, and twenty years ago I listened to other people say I needed a vtwin to have enough torque to get my tubby butt moving. Well, here I am twenty years later, still addicted to that sound, but mature enough to know I likely won't ever be good enough to exploit 75HP, let alone 115 (RC51) or 150 (Multi). Since my wife is not into riding, any bike I have will likely be a 90/10 track bike, so best to have something that's not Italian. lol Rearset pegs and clip on tubes are much cheaper to replace. Though if I came across one, a clean o4 RC51 would be fun to own again.
