Hi, new to the site....
I see RCs around and every one I've chase down and talk to have been very nice and cool people, but it appears that we're all responsible... hard-working adults that have little free time, and I'm starting to believe we're a little antisocial.
I live around the S. Arlington area and would like to find one or a few people to ride with, anyone in the area?

I just left there in January (Kitsap area). Look out for the RC51 Meet that typically happens in August.
@TORQUEDORK
You got it this year, my friend!

Hello Mike, I'm new to the show but I just picked up an '04 that is going to need a lot of work to be pretty again. I'm hoping to meet up with some owners in the area. It's always nice to be able to look over a finished product of what your working on. Plus its fun to meet people who appreciate the same things. I'm up on Whidbey Island by the way.

Well I figure I'll update this and see if we have any RC people locally... Anyone in the Everett to Arlington area?

You're way up there in WA. I've ridden my 1190R as far a Leavenworth but the RC would have to go on a trailer to get up there. Maybe we could organize a Mt. Saint Helen's meet up.

Hows it on Whidbey Island, and how's your 04RC rehab going?
Thank you for responding forever ago, and I apologize for not responding within a logical timeframe. I'm a very busy person and stuff drops by the wayside if I'm not on top of it, lol
My RC 05 is naked, and sitting in the livingroom.
I ordered new bodywork and bits so I'm in excited prep mode.

Sorry to revive the ancient (by Internet standards) post...just picked up an 06 earlier this year. Any of you guys still around/have RC’s? Didn’t do much other than quick solo rides this year, but would like to take some group rides next year. Lake Stevens area now but moving to Stanwood in late Feb.

I picked up a 01 a few months back. I'm in the Snohomish/Clearveiw area. I'm down for some rides this coming summer.

It would be fun to get a bunch of RC51s together. Have to see if we can put something together.

There are some fun day rides on the south side of Baker and some good ones over on the peninsula. Be fun to work a day at the Ridge in. Never had the RC51 there.

Nice, it would be great to get a bunch of folks together.
I’d love to try the Ridge. Watched the road racing/track days a couple times while I was over at the MX track a couple years ago, looked like a blast.

I'm planning on going to the Ridge this season. Taking the RC to the track is a lot of fun and you'll always get a couple of other riders chat you up in the pits about the bike.

O'Malley you have a successful move to Stanwood or is that still to come? Your bike still treating you well? I saw a black '05/06 on I5 the other day and made me think of this post.

Thanks for checking in! House is done, moving in next weekend or so. Loving the bike, although with the lovely weather we’ve had it’s been a garage queen, lol.

Came across this in my constant search for parts. If it was an SP2 I would have already brought her home and I am still very tempted... Thought I should share it with the local guys.


If anyone wants me to take a look let me know.

How much was that 2000 model in Craigslist? The ad is gone now.
btw I’m in north Seattle area, got an 01 SP1 that I rebuilt from a forlorn tow yard auction pile.

Was listed for $3500. Guy had a bunch of extra parts along with it. She sold in under a week, before I could make it down to see her.
