coming from a scooter... the sounds!

Hi all!

New member here from California, and just got really lucky to be able to get the bike a couple weeks ago. Love riding the RC so much! The sound of the bike is definitely what sold the bike to me. Couldn't believe Honda actually made this bike.

Always loved Honda motorcycles and thought they only have the CBRs, until I came across the RC just recently.

This bike has so much character in its sounds that makes me miss riding it.

Now I can't wait for the weekend to come to ride it again.

See you on the road, and always ride safe! Take care!

Hey man, welcome to the forum.
What year is your bike?
Let me guess, a 2000?
It seems like CA got a big portion of the RC51's the first year, I see and hear of a lot of them.

Welcome. John's a tad biased, the '03 is the bees knees!!!!

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

Thank you guys!

I got an 05 actually, the one with black and red accents color scheme.

Exhaust is really loud, it got the Yoshimura one. I kinda cringe everytime I have to turn it on at dawn, feel bad for my neighbors.
