Sold the R1 and bought the 2002 RC 51 today.
How do you like it compared to your R1?
They are quite different bikes.
Well, to tell you the truth I haven't had a chance to ride it yet,as I live in Ohio and it is like 12 degrees out. I always wanted a twin and thought thr RC 51 was the bike, it is a 2002 but it was still in the crate from Honda until last year,so it is pretty much a new bike.
A new '02 RC51 still in the crate? That's astounding bordering on the unbelievable.
What, they stashed the crate deep in the bowels of some huge warehouse and forgot about it?
I know in most states, dealers have to start paying taxes on vehicles not sold past a certain time frame. And no dealer is going to do that, if at all possible.

So you have a brand new 6 year old bike you will now be breaking in.
I hope you took pictures and enjoy it for many years.
It actually has 1,800 miles on it ,it was bought at a Honda dealer that went out of buisness and then was reopened by another owner,this bike was never uncrated . A friend of mine bought the bike and then lost his job,so I got it from him for $5,600,I thought it was a good deal. I will post some pics up when I get done with everything that I want to do with it.
