BTW, what year bike did you find? Dealer/private? I bought mine last summer, 1200 original miles, SP2, 2003. I think I paid too much, $7K, but the bike is like brand new, had tons of Honda factory spares (former owner was a Honda MC tech) and Leo Vince slip on exhaust and chain sprocket change.
I've been riding 36 years, I chuckled, the 29 year old owner was "warning" me of the savagery of the RC, HO-HUM compared to the arm straightening ability of an Gixxer 1000, CBR 1000, or R1,. Sorry, Liter bikes I find are much more EXPLOSIVE than the RC in acceleration. But none offer the cool accelerative traction in corners, SEXY MUSIC of the motor, or classic styling. I've had the rockets, this bike is da shit!
