new owner of never owned 2001 sp1

Hi guys . I am new to the rc-51 but not motorcycles. I have been riding about 40 years (45year old) . always wanted an rc-51 but could not afford one. As luck would have it I found a SP1 that s been in a dealership here in town never titled and sold between dealerships. I bought the bike on 3/11/16 I'm now the original owner of a 2001 sp1 with still less then 1000 miles on it. I'm glad I found this website dedicated to one of the most interesting bikes out there

I paid $6500 , Which in my area seems like a reasonable price for a bike that had less than 900 miles . But how often can find your dream bike new in a dealership in 15 years after it was built .it was a factory demo of some sort. That got caught up in bankruptcy proceedings from the previous dealership

The fact you found an almost showroom floor SP1 is pretty cool!
I hear you, always wanted an RC 51 since the day they were released and just picked mine up a month ago.

Nowhere near the condition of yours.

Congrats!
