Hello from Raleigh NC

New member here from Raleigh NC. I've been riding some form of MC since the tender age of 10 years old. I've wanted an RC51 since 2000, but just have never been able to pull the trigger on one until now. I'll be picking up my new to me 2003 SP2 this Saturday, lord willing. Wish me luck guys..............

I do like the gold wheels. That's one of the things that drew me to this particular RC. The gentleman appears to have taken good care of the bike and if any of his other vehicles are an indicator, this will be a charm. After I get it home and go through it, I'll post more RVT porn for all to see.

Welcome to the fray! Good luck, hope the bike checks out good when you get it. They're tough bikes as long as they've been taken care of.
