New(ish) RC51 owner here.

Hey Guys,

I bought my 2001 RC51 last summer, but didn't join the forum until tonight. Always loved and wanted an RC, and the right bike at the right price finally found me. She was a little rough around the edges, and gave me my share of teething problems(previous owner was an idiot), but through much patience and perseverance, she'll be a great ride by springtime.

5 days after I picked her up;



As she sits at this moment;





Anyway, she's my 4th sportbike, and 3rd Honda. First was an 88 CBR600F, followed by a 94 CBR900RR, a 92 GSXR750, and now the RC51. Looking forward to many many miles on her in the years to come.

Welcome to the family!

Thanks for the warm welcome, guys. I'm going to start a little thread with some more details on the bike, in the media section.

Your 3rd picture made me laugh. That's exactly what my bike looks like right now. Welcome.

Mine still pretty much looks like that, except I tossed the saddle back on it for now, and I've done a little more tidy up under the tail. I'm having surgery on my thumb this coming Monday, so it's gonna be a mad dash to get some serious work done on her this weekend.
