Nice bike. And original owner. If you don't need the money just put it in your house as a display piece

Here's the life story of my rc. Bought in 07 in Peoria IL off their showroom floor. Broke in with honda conventional oil changed at 642 miles then at 1600 miles I switched to Mobil 1 full synthetic 10w40 racing 4t motorcycle oil and ran ever since with records of changes. New battery 2 weeks ago since the 5 yr old one was weak, just the same ebay cheapo but 5 yrs is pretty good life. Stored in heated garage since day 1. Never raced or dropped and people say I'm pretty particular and take care of my stuff and vehicles. Bike has 11,3xx miles now , never have had any problems with it. D and D slip ons since 2008. flushmount front signals and a hot bodies rear undertail kit. Jpr short adjustable charcoal color levers. Original chain still in the green on axle blocks. Original brakes rotors sprockets that seem to be very good condition. Tires are continental motions with 800 miles on then which are a sport touring tire that wears a little longer than sportbike tires because I wore the centers out commuting to work and riding around town. 3rd set of tires so I averaged 5k per set. I have stock exhaust, levers and a set of black widow bike stands. Well taken care of bike and not abused. I had the rims powder coated med gloss black due to paint chips and wheel weight marks and use sticky weights nows. I don't know what they sell for around here but I'd say $5900 is fair. I've been wanting something more comfortable and I'm not getting any younger so I've found a cruiser I like. Let me know if I forgot anything.

Very nice RC you have there Greasy.. take it from me I've sold a couple RCs in the past & always regretted it..
I have a 2006 RC now & I plan on keeping it.. based on the condition you described you've priced it too cheap in my opinion..
the bike will sell but I suggest keeping it.

Thanks for the comments guys now I'm sitting here pondering my decisions on it... she was my grocery wagon yesterday after work it was 70 degrees.. nice to watch people stare and drool at stop lights wondering what kind of motor makes this sound on a sportbike

I'm 60, and I'm keeping my RC. Period. And that's even if I only ride my Duc Multi to any real extent anymore, which is why I bought it last year. It's my "comfy cruiser" that also goes like hell AND has hard luggage and modern techy stuff for long touring use.

I oughta buy your bike and put it in MY living room!

My second bike was a 98 vtr1000. And it was a nice but man the sound. I couldn't get over the sound. I absolutely loved it. And like you said there is no other sport bike like it. Then when the RCs came out that was my dream bike. I said to myself one day I'll have that bike. Well now almost 20 years later my wife finally said go buy one. So I bought an 02 RC. And I would not trade this thing for the world. I only paid $5000 cnd for mine. So that's like $40 bucks American now. Lol. There will be no way I'll sell this bike. It's mine now haha.

I could only wish I had it since new.

You have a rare gem there man. Especially cause it has been no one else's.

If you could hold on to it I would. It's a priceless masterpiece.

Good luck with either way you go.
