Jeez, itís not like manually shifting an automatic!



(running and ducking!)
Hahaha well said sir. If purists want to be so pure they should be driving Model T's and dying of tuberculosis. It always annoys me when people, instead of celebrating technological advances that allow more humans to partake in what they enjoy, start shrieking "unclean!"

That being said, paddle-shifting is for bitches.

What's fun. Filling up your RC51 1000 V Twin at a gas station and having a bunch of HD's pull in to get gas too. After filling, punch the start button and have the RC51 bark to life. You want to see a bunch of HD heads turn and look your way. Oh.....you can hear that RC51 having a V Twin rumble.

No, but they do have some weight to them. You never notice it too much. I used to do trackdays with mine too.

Exactly, I figured it’s better to have and not need/want than to need/want and not have.

Iím surprised no oneís b*tched about the other features:

1. Keyless start - nope I like to crank start the car like said model tís
2. Keyless entry - nope I like to manually put the key in and unlock
3. Bluetooth - nope I like to use my hands to talk
4. Gas pedal - nope I like to Freddy-Flintstone it by using my feet to go
5. Brake pedal - nope I like to Freddy-Flintstone this too by using my feet to stop
6. VVEL - nope Iíll just pedal with my feet faster from the get-go
7. Oil Temp Gauge - nope, donít need oil when using my feet
8. Clock Gauge - nope Iíll just use my sundial
9. Gas Gauge - nope donít need to use gas when Freddy-Flintstoning it
10. TPMS - nope Iíll rely on the calluses on my feet to conquer any debris
11. Sports package - nope Iíll manually buy some of the parts and install, and tell others my base is better than their upgraded model
