The gold cover looks ace, Rob, and the rest look good too. Pity they can't be on display all the time, but the fairings come in handy I suppose¬†ūüėČ

 

 

And then some folks cover it up even more...

picture = 1000 words, etc.

Ya know since you've put a RC51 front end on your VFR I think its required that you put a VFR swing arm on your RC51. 

Wow, garage looks great, we are all jealous. Needs more bikes though.   Just put new rubber on the RC, will post a recent photo, but in the meantime, here's a photo--taken in January:

There's only a few race-rep paint schemes that, to my eye, look good. Took me awhile, but I've come round on the Castrol graphics of your SP-2. And I always enjoy reading about your adventures aboard it.

But Dutchy's getting close to the edge, one more sticker and that RC is a goner. 

We'll have to ask Colin Edwards for an expert opinion!

The sticker bonanza partly the result of the (chinesium) panels starting life in the oem SP2 livery....

And the star spangled banner??  Despite belief in some quarters,  I *do* like the USA... :laugh:

I do love the Castrol livery--it looks great, and also it reminds me of the great Ducati/RC-51 battles in WSBK 20 years ago. And the two bikes in my garage!

Seeing Edwards and Slight race at Assen planted the seed in my head that "one day....." :laugh:

Decided to gear the beast down just a Little bit more for city riding. 

 

Yeah, stock gearing is sky high. I went to 15/41 ( I think stock is 16/40) which is just right for me.

 

That bike is beautiful.

I went with the (ridiculous)14/43 with an 1/8th turn throttle - great for the track, but I might put the 15 front on since I still carve it up a bit on the street.

I was @ 16/44 but went 16/45 just for the stoplights in the city. It’s perfect now.
