My RC51 experience so far
Matt here from Wisconsin, age 47, been on two wheels since age 10 and as many of you know it just becomes something you need to feel and becomes part of who you are
I have been interested in the RC51 for a good while, reading articles etc.. looking for my next bike to replace my like new 95 GSXR750 next spring. A 70 year old British man had an 02 RC51 for sale close to my work, the pictures were crappy and fuzzy and i dont ever remember seeing an RC51 up close and personal but since it was close thought id check the machine out. So i arrive there and its just badass sexy sleek bulging with muscle.. holy for the cri pete was i taken back grinning from ear to ear!!! This machine moved me like no other bike ever!! The sound of the TB exhaust, the whine of the gear driven cams!! Thank you Honda for creating such a machine!! I went home and my wife greeted me and asked what i thought of the bike, i said wow! theres so many words, a passion, a feeling it was amazingly muscular sexy sleek and strong... the hair was standing on my arms!!! We went and looked at it together she thought it was hot and said if its got what you want get it, now let me see what you look like on it. Paid down, pick it up Tuesday, my wife is everyday amazingly good to me. We cruise the nice indian res roads together on our Valkyrie but the RC is for me to enjoy going to work or hitting the country roads.
