I'm Brian, 25, from good ole Iowa! Just bought my first RC51 through cycletrader.com! It's got a laundry list of mods and was previously owned by an ASE certified master tech for acura/honda. The bike is in near flawless condition and only has 22k miles on it. The 2002 RC51 is my 3rd bike and I still have my 96 ZX6R in the garage too, which feels like a scooter compared to the honda. I had an 08 Kawi Vulcan 900 Custom all modded out but sold that in Oct '10.
There are a few things I want to change about her already. Definitely want to tint out the zero gravity double bubble windshield on it. Also need a rear hugger bad! I want to powder coat the rims and swing arm if not get the whole bike repainted. It was custom painted red and has a nicky front end look with white around the lights, makes me sick personally but it's just paint. I think i might also paint all the bolts to match.
I think my favorite part is the Carbon Sato exhaust for the SP2. Mean Mean Mean sounding bike. Meanest crotch i've ever heard, personally. Anyways, it's late and the wife has a doc appt with the OB/GYN tomorrow, as you can all imagine this purchase didnt sit well with my pregnant wife, haha i better get some rest! Drop me a line if your from around here and want to ride
That's cool that you have a speed6 as well. I had a 06 as well, sold it this past fall though to move onto a bit quicker car. That thing was sweet though it was comfortable, had a great sound system, good looks, and man what a sleeper. AWD 300ish HP and no hood scoop =awesome.
