New RC51 owner in S.D.

Hi all. Figured I should introduce myself. I live in western South Dakota, so great riding for this bike. Recently picked up an 02 with a touch over 20k on it. It's all kinds of ugly but fun so far.

Not my first Honda twin, I had an 05 Superhawk up until I saw this one up for sale last week. The Hawk had to go to make room for the RC51 though.

I'll get pics as soon as I can. I had the bike for a whole 4 days and it left me stranded with a no fuel issue. Not the best first impression from the bike but it is older so I am expecting some issues.

So now I get to have it sit at the dealer while they look in to it. Unfortunately, this is Sturgis Rally week so I probably won't see the bike for a couple weeks.

Such is the problem with older bikes, they have often been worked on a lot, maybe seen some hard miles, etc and they can develop ghost problems of a sort
