Group RC51 photos - was some photos of my RC and some of my friends..
1st photo I found. This was from 2005 at Mid Ohio. Mine is the closest one to the camera. Still looking for the shot from May of 2000 when all 6 of us got our RC's and finally got together.
Next is a scanned print I had from the first night we all got together with our bikes. Back in 2000 a friend of mine owned one of the local Honda dealership. He got 1 RC for his store, bought another dealers bike from southern Indiana, and found 4 other bikes for the rest of us guys. I was living in Detroit at the time and he calls me up and says I found you one in a small town in Ohio. Call the dealership they have your name and set up sending them a deposit. The date on the photo is the day I picked up the bike in Ohio and took it over to Ft. Wayne to my buddies shop to have it checked over and to spend the weekend. Should have seen the looks we got as all 6 of us ran around in a pack.
This next shot is my favorite of the original group of SP1's. Mine is the 3rd one in from the left. Of the original 6 only 3 still exist and only 2 are in the original owners posession. Mine and the one to the left of me. 1 was stolen at Mid Ohio vintage days, 1 was totalled in Canada in 2002, and one went through a couple of owners until it was totalled in a fatality accident in 09.
