Hey all, had a 2004 RC... sold it to a buddy who still owns it. I’ve owned a R1, 996, 999, streetglide and a Bking... none have made me feel like my RC did. So I finally found a 2001 in good condition and bought it this week. Glad to be back on a RC... there is nothing like it. No comparison at all.
First off, TTIWWP's! That is, where are the pics?!
Congrats man! I just got mine and since I'm recovering from an accident have only ridden it once for 20 minutes. I dreamt of owning one of these since they came out. Back in the early 00's I went to an open track day and just sat at the exit of the hairpin leading onto the straight and watched (and listened to!) a bunch of these great bikes fly by. I had this first bike set as one my my desktop wallpapers for years and kept me dreaming I guess. The 2nd is mine. I currently own and will likely sell a CBR1100xx and a very clean 2000 ZX-9R.
Any chance you bought it off of ebay or want to share the link to the sale? I'm sure I've been eyeballing it, LOL.
Hope you feel better soon for sure. I got mine locally here in MD. Got mine off Craigslist... fortunately, I’ve had decent luck with buying and selling bikes on Craigslist. Funny thing is... since I’ve already owned the bike, I get a complete re-do which is great lol. It’s basically stock... still has the stock rear fender and all. One of the cleaner ones I’ve found.
