Owned a TL1000r and loved it but sold it when we moved from Sacramento, Cali to south GA (Air Force). Settled in now and picked up a 2000 rc51 with 15k miles for $3,000.
It has been down and put back together by a guy who was not a purist. Stuff is miss matched and zip tied. Mechanically the bike is solid, but allows me to get my hands a bit dirty and something to level out my sitting position.
Some of the plans for the bike: get it all together right, sure up the wiring, fix the small stuff ( signals and speedo), clean this poor girl and clean it again put some new fluids in her.
Get some decent miles on her the next couple months before I push off and let the modding begin next spring.
I've already rewired the signals, added front signals, did the flapper mod and began cleaning her up.
