Welcome, lots of great information on here !!!! If you are on facebook join the RC groups there also. I also was a 996, and 998 owner. I had bought a new 2002 RC, and sold in 2004 to help buy a house. I bought a 2000 996, then a 2002 998, they are nice bikes but they just don't have the character of the RC. I sold the Duc's and bought a 2004 RC in 2016,and wont go back. There are some nice lower mile examples for sale depending where you live, could always have a bike shipped if found one you liked, and wasn't local to you.

Lots of good people and information here, use the search to find whatever topic you are thinking of. Unfortunately the forums have died off, and Facebook is dominating the social groups now. There are a bunch of RC groups on there and very active. RC-51 fans is most active in the states.

Whoa, nice find! I searched high and low for an '05 while in buying mode, but up here they are just so freaking rare. We never got the '06 in Canada so in the States with another model year's production and sales with 10x the population they are likely not quite as hard to come by as here. And of course I'm not jealous at all....

Welcome to the forums & the owner's club..

We won't hold it against you being a Duc owner now that you've come over to the dark side lol

It looks like a clean 05 SP2 you've found there congratulations on the purchase

I'll probably be selling my 2005 sometime this year. It's super clean with just 21,000 miles. Private message me if you want me to save your contact information.
