I've been a lurker here for a while and thought I'd finally introduce myself. I am the proud owner of a 2004 RC51. I bought it from my brother 3 years ago. I have loved this bike since I first heard the ridiculous sound of it and wanted one terribly but it took me a while to get one for myself. I haven't done too many mods just cans (Sato carbon fiber high mount on low mount mids), PCIII and 15/42 520 conversion. I love the bike (my girlfriend doesn't so much as it's hard to carry a passenger) and don't think I will ever sell it. It always makes me smile when I hear the sound of the V-twin and I love that it's a unique and rare motorcycle. I'd love to install a snorkel and airbox but I'm not much of a wrench turner since I don't really have a place to do it and money is a bit tight, but it's on the short list of things to do someday.
Anyway, I enjoy reading all the info posted here about this fantastic machine and look forward to reading more and hopefully sharing some of my knowledge (although I am a confessed neophyte).
