Hello from Canada

Hello everyone.

I ve been checking out your forum for a while now, but just signed up.

I own and ride a 2007 R1, but I have always wanted an RC. Im definately in the market for one in the next couple years, until then Ill remain insanely jealous of each of you who own one.

Howdy and welcome!
An '07 R1 is also a very nice bike!

Its a great bike. I bought it new, and loved it ever since. My previous ride was a Ninja 500R, also fun.

yep, that R1 sure is a great bike. Welcome to the forum, and looking forward to seeing your RC51 when you get one. Keep an eye out, you can find them fairly cheap at the moment.

Welcome. One of my riding buddies rides an R1. We keep saying we are gonna swap someday, but once we get out there...

I agree with gts, you'll probably never get a RC51 any cheaper than they are right now. But even tho the economy is in the crapper, I've noticed asking prices are going up since this spring. By about $500 to $1000. Don't know if they're getting it, but even so, you can still find find a few really good deals. It blows me away when I read on this forum some of the pristene RC51's that are still out there being bought by new members.

Welcome Grendil. We could be neighbors, I'm an hour and a half north of Edmonton R1's are a solid bike too, but keep looking for an RC, there's a few around but they are usually a bit pricier in these parts than in the States, bit rarer is the reason I think.

Duct tape can't fix stupid...but it sure helps muffle the sound
