crappy photos, but will post anyway.
Riding position is very similiar. 6 on one hand, half a dozen on the other in regards to which is more comforatble. The RC's erogonomics are slightly better as in a bit more relaxed (a bit as in hardly)..however, i find the Ducati's seat to be a bit more comfortable (again...a bit as in hardly).
There's a lot of reasons for the switch. I've wanted a cruiser for a while now and couldn't pass up the deal I got it for. It has a lot of work done and theres not a scratch on it. All my friends have cruisers and we do a lot of longer distance rides. Its just more practical for what I need a bike for. My girlfriend is always on the back and it just makes it easier. Plus it looks and sounds great. I love the zx6r, and I'm sure I'll miss it. But the highway riding and kind of driving I do just doesn't really use the potential of a crotch rocket.
So i sold my SECAII, got myself a katana 600. It had been sitting since 2002 when I bought it, but it fired right up in his driveway with some starter fluid. It still needs some tuning, but it is a lot of fun to ride Yoshi header/exhaust, K&n pod filters, and stg3 jets make for quite a sound.
It's no R6 or Monster 1100 but it gets me to and from work, starts right up, no waiting for it to warm up, 75mpg and it's fun for me.I can twist the throttle wide open at stoplights and can't get into serious trouble.
Studies have shown that all decaying mammals smell exactly the same. So what if you want the smell of dead whores but can't afford to risk a lengthy jail sentence? Try a dead cat. Just slip it under the seat and no one will be the wiser. They will get in your car and say " Dam ******, you gots a dead hooker in the trunk?" and you can smile and just say " I'll never tell".
I really miss my bike. I still have the guys name\number that I sold it to, i just wonder if he still has it. There was so much money that was put into that bike I dont know why I sold it. I sold it for my custom standup jetski because I used to live on a lake, now I dont live anywhere near a lake, and I wish I had a bike again
For the photographers of the forum, you know how there is that one shot that sits in your head where you think, "yes, I need to break the camera out and take this picture." Well, this is that picture. Soon as I bought the bike I knew I needed something to this effect and this is the result.
my apologies about the grainy crap cell phone pic. But i picked up another Honda today. Original plan was to pick up a late 60's/early 70's honda CT90 to putt around in...but came across this deal and took the plunge today....
bought from the original owner with 9K miles on the clock. No drivetrain or suspension modifications. Bike is bone stock with the exception of a cage which i'm removing and an HID headlight conversion...which i also plan to remove. Makes a nice garage mate to the RC51. Will take better photos of both very soon and post them up. I think i'm becoming addicted to Honda bikes.
