Welcome and nice buy man!

I'm from Rochester NY and gotta tell you, there aren't many upstate NY'ers that own these bikes so it's definitely rare. A lot of my friends ride GSX'rs and love the RC's.

Dunno if you guys got it but we caught a couple of 50* days here last week and managed to get our bikes out before we were covered in this snow once again...

Nice buy and welcome to the group. Definitely a lot of knowlegable people on here and good hook ups on parts and prices.

Ride on through the Dragon to Cherohala Skyway and let the RC eat....I spend little time on the Dragon any more....too many cops, sport tuners and general squids.....50 miles of beautify sweepers.

An 01 and a 00 w/sp2 swingarm. I'm thinking the tail section colors are reversed of each other? Now if I saw a pair of RC's like that cruising down the road, I'd probably be talking about it for days :0

Hey, that's cool! I've talked through the forum to about 5 or 6 local guys here, and soon i'm sure, we'll be able to do a ride. But not yet. I'm kinda envisioning about 4 -6 of us RC51's riding some of the local stuff I do around here. EPIC.

Really nice bike you got there! Put some factory 5 spoke rims on there, and you'll really have people confused.
