New bike. RC51?

I posted earlier when someone about upgrading from the but here it is verbatim:

I went a 2001 F4i to a 2003 RC 51. Just the RC 51 last week. After 450 (just barely broken in) the are major.

I am not yet used to the bike, but is what I have already

The RC 51 has a strong power band 0RPM to 10k. There is no power band like at 8k or 9k of the It is very strong the entire you are on the throttle. this is a major

The bike prefers to be on the throttle, all the If you let off and then get on it again, the power throws you back. If you want a ride, you have to be on the throttle all the

The RC 51 is heavier and in my opinion is noticeable. is something I will just get to with more riding. I because of this additional it will be more forgiving turns with gravel and braking ( which fortunately i had to yet).

The seat position is totally I am about 6′ and I noticed the are significantly lower. Therefore, is no option for sitting completely like I was able to on the F4i.

of this, I am putting a lot of weight on my and hands and they numb up quickly. I will learn to put weight on them as I get more In addition, I rest (hang) one arm as as I can.

I feel like I am on top of the front tire. This is a different feeling from the F4i and I will get used to. I am yet to make any to the suspension.

I have it set completely neutral and adjust it once I get a better

Currently, the RC 51 is extremely firm. You everything on the road. I guess is to be expected from a sportbike, but different then the F4i.

The exhaust looks cool as except when you want to to aftermarket slip-ons it cost just an additional expense to the i guess.

Most everyone I ride has a gxsr and an occassional F4i.

seen another RC 51 yet, so by it, you are different. It is not a me too bike. (I drive a 750. Yeah me too)

the bike is just different the F4i. More power for Stronger, longer power. No rpm where the power kicks in. It is power the whole time.

It was a upgrade, but something to get used to.

Depending on how you ride the other to consider is the 954. I have ridden one, so I am not an expert, but on everything I have read, I have talked to that ridden both, here are the differences.

It is all based on how you ride. If you are to tear up the twisties and improve skills in the turns over then buy the rc 51. if you love to open it up and fly the straightway highways well 100mph, doing wheelies the way, buy the 954.

good luck. the rc 51 is awesome so just takes a little used to. i dont think you can with either.
