Isn't it IRONIC........

My other bike (Harley flsts) broke down so I took my rc51 to the Harley dealer to get the part it needed.

My smartass self also had to point it out to all the Harley people at the dealer that my reliable Honda was brought to get parts for the broke down Harley.

Had to get a pic as well! Haha

You could just sell the potato bike and save some money that way....

HD = Hundred Dollars....every time one steps into a HD dealership, that's what you'll spend.

Did you get a spare t-shirt too?

That's a nice '68 you have there...er is it a '78....ummm.....no its definitely a '98.

See, that my issue, they haven't changed the design in so long I have no idea what year it is.

I do like the retro look with the huge white walls...it looks gangsta

Its also nice you already have your retirement bike.

Save your money, you'll be buying a reg/rec for the RC51 someday too. They crap out all the time. New - ~$150...

I hear ya, it's hard to tell if its new or old.
The bike is pretty, but very inferior to our rc51's in every way imaginable.

Thanks on the compliment. Actually the tires are made by Avon and they are called gangsters!

Lol, I have another 30 years before retirement.
