New to the form

Hello,
New to the form. By brother had MANY bikes but this was his favorite. Always told stores about his adventures of hwy 9 in the Santa Cruz mountains (he lived in Boulder Creek). I believed him but thought some were a bit of an exaggeration. That is until I let him borrow my GO-PRO on visiting him. When I got it back I noticed a few files on it. No exaggeration going on at all.
Now that he is gone, I have been thinking about his and would really like to see about getting one. I am not new to bikes, been riding for 40 years. Currently have:
GL1800
FJ1200
KLR650
and a 76 RD400 stage 2-2 stroke.

Thanks for letting me in and I will be lurking about trying to learn more about these bikes.

Paul

Welcome to the forum Paul,

I just did a few 9 runs today, until the sun disappeared. Do you still ride up there? Rarely see another RC51 in the wild these days.

Hello
No my brother lived in Boulder Creek. I live in Atlanta. He had the RC and is the reason I am looking at getting one.
I have been out to see him and can tell you 9 sucks on the weekend. Too many people. Weekdays during work hours that is an awesome road for a motorcycle.

Howdy from Texas. I bought an 00 model 4 years ago. Iíve barely put 1500 miles on it. But it is darn fine bike. I managed to ride it last weekend and today. About 300 miles for the two weeks.

Life is short. Go buy one. They are really great. I rode a friends 17 RSV4 factory last weekend. It was very cool. And he just paid $17k for it. It was not 12-14 thousand dollars worth of more fun. My other 3 bikes are in line 4 cylinder. The RC is just completely different.
