Re: Impending Coup Attempt?

With the continued member shift to the RCFudgy-One....I am left wondering when they will all converge on Conq's place and demand that he relinquish the server to their evil purposes.....

Question is...what will the new site be named?

PudgyBlades.org?

RainbowBlades.org?

LobbinBlades.org?

FruityBlades.org?

MauveBlades.org?

NotThatThere'sAnythingWrongWithThatBlades.org?

C'mon guys....let us in on the secret...

Doubt it....the next gen will likely have an even more manic power to weight ratio than the 9XX bikes....and considerably more so than the 51.....

You can talk 'character' and 'flat curve' all you want...but its really the milder power to weight ratio that makes the RC so much fun on the street.....its just a better match for a road going machine.....

I would agree with all you've said 'tech, and add that a twin's easier to ride briskly as well. Gear selection isn't so critical. Also, I have to argue that there's simply no matching a sport-twin's charisma, particularly when they've got a 'properly fruity' exhaust!

When that naked SP2 comes out (just let me hope, will ya Booth?), I can see a trade away from my I4. A set of loud carbon cans on that sucker and I'm a happy boy...

Not at all....I think its a great machine...read my post again...

If I had room for a 3rd bike, I would have one of my own....for now, I will just sponge rides from others....

My only beef with the RC51 is the gimmicky marketing....ie, the fact that its not an 'RC'.
Other than that, I think its a great Honda-esque piece of engineering....a bit anachronistic now, but fun to ride nonetheless....

Re: Impending Coup Attempt?

Not a RC, c'mon man.

Gimmicky marketing? I can't recall seeing a RC51 commercial in quite some time. And whatever it is, can't be more gimmicky than those Joe Rocketman commercials with Nicky in them

So much hate. Maxx sure does make himself look like an a$$. You'd think that the RC is a got damn Katana from some of out of that guy's mouth.

And the king hater steps forward...

The last king hater got punk'd by a fellow rogue member at the track... Nedro takes over the crown...

And I guess all you guys (read fireblade peeps) think the 954 they run in FX is close to what rolls off the showroom floor?? Zemke's bike shares nothing with your bike, its not even a 954cc engine.

Its not even close, but for some reason, the fact that the RC51 is so different in factory sponsored trim leads everyone to jump up in arms and claim that the RC51 you buy is a fake...

VEE DUBB in da house... representin deutchland!

As you are well aware....I am talking about the 'Name' of the bike as marketed here in the U.S. Also, since you are well versed in Honda nomenclature, you know its not an RC bike....its an SC.....

Honda cashed in on the cachet of the 'RC' moniker by putting it in the model 'name' here in the States.....thats a pure gimmick, and a crappy one at that....

In the rest of the world, the bike has a proper name, not stolen from Honda heritage.....

Again, read my post carefully, I am not bashing the bike, on the contrary I think its awesome....but I do have a problem the gimmicky marketing...
