New older gentleman that just joined the forum this afternoon. Haven't even spent anytime lurking yet.
Live in a city just northeast of Seattle, WA, USA and just retired in July of this year.
I had/have 4 bikes in the garage, but I hadn't ridden my '00 Harley WideGlide for a few years so I traded it straight across for a good friend's '05 RC51 with only 6K miles on it. His ex had it in storage for a couple of years until things cooled off. She actually owned it, until he bought it as part of a settlement.
The last Honda in my garage was a '78 Night Hawk that my daughter brought home from college. I fixed it up and sold it for her quite a few years ago.
I'm here to learn as much as I can about the RC51 so I can take care of her. She won't be a garage queen.
I'll try and add a picture (1st post), but I'm sure you all know what an '05 looks like - black and metallic grey. This one has a pair of Two Brothers cans and a PCIII. That's all I know at this point.
Thanks for the service manual download ('00-'01). I'll be trying to figure out what the changes have been on this SP2. I love to service all my vehicles.
Oh,... my other bikes are a '09 "Slazuki" DR650 dual sport from the gravel, a '07 BMW K1200GT for trips, and a '10 BMW S100RR for the track. Not sure what exactly I'll do with the RC51 yet. Track it?
Hope to make friends with you, and maybe meet some locals.
