Just a note to introduce myself, and offer best wishes to all for a wonderful Holiday Season.
I'm not currently an RC51 rider, but am looking far and wide for one, or my second choice is a late model VTR1000 Superhawk. I'm a Honda dealer in Alberta Canada, and currently ride a 2009 GL1800 (Wings have always been my favorite ride) but have owned several Honda bike models since I was old enough to ride. I've had a CM200, CB400T, 2 CB750's, VF500, ST1300, and two other GL's. My brother in law just picked up a '98 VTR and it's got my blood pumping for another sporting ride. Looking forward to conversing and learning.

Duct tape can't fix stupid...but it sure helps muffle the sound
'03 SP2, '09 GL1800

Have fun with your search. Quite a difference between the Superhawk & the RC51. My old Superhawk was kind of like owning a labrador retriever - Behaved well, friendly & comfortable. The RC seems more like a (slightly overweight) Rottweiller by comparison. P.S., I had the ST also. Great sport tourer. I used to love pushing it hard into corners & it would make sort of a star wars type moan. I never did figure out what it was - must be aerodynamics, but it was entertaining! I often wondered if they all did that?
