Sort of new from Arizona
I've actually been registered here for some time but I've never posted until recently. I have an '02 RC that I found on eBay back in 2007 with only 60 miles on it. I had been living in Germany serving in the Air Force for several years, and in fact my riding buddy and I spent a lot of time at the Nurburgring, riding our bikes and cars on both the big and small track. At the time, I owned a ZX-9 followed by a 929RR, both of which had more than a few laps there. Every once in a while I'd see an RC51 at the Ring, and the bike always struck a cord. Eventually I started checking eBay every once in a while to see what the RC market looked like, and after returning to the US, I stumbled on the bike I bought. I loved it from the start and never plan to get rid of it.
The bike at this point has several mods done, including cams and pistons. I'll share more in another post, including dyno runs.
