Hi all. i was in my local Honda Suzuki shop friday for tires for my SV 1000 and the tech said the owner had a 03 RC51 stashed in the back so he showed it to me . it only had 528 miles on it and micron carbon cans and heli bars. i asked the owner if it was for sale and he said he really did not want to sell but if came up with $8000 it was mine. it is in show room condition so i bought it saturday and went for group ride sunday of about 500 miles. all i can say is i love this bike.. i may have over paid i'm not sure but thats OK....
be talking to you all soon....
Bill.....

15K miles with a 15/42 520 setup. I put the FMF exhaust on for $357. Steel braided brake lines front/rear are on the way for $65 and then I'm done for now. Greggs flushmounts got a closeout set in white for $36. I was going to paint them black but I sanded them down and decided to hold off on the black paint for a while. I really want a used scotts mount so I can swap my scotts between the 954 and the RC. The RC doesnt seem to really need the scotts as badly as the 954 but if I can get a good deal on the mount I'll grab one for sure.

I bought my mint '03 RC last year from a Honda MC tech who was soon to be a young Daddy, 1200 miles, with Leo Vince exhaust, 15/42 sprocket/chain combo and a slew of original Honda spare parts, such as brakes, fork seals, bulbs, etc.
The bike was on E-bay with a BIN for $7K, the bidding was up to $6200. so I pulled the trigger on BIN! I've never regretted the decision! I sold my mint 12K mile CBR 929 to a 45 year old Dad who wanted to ride with his son. BTW, here's a picture of me and my son after a hot ride with the CBR and RC. BTW, my son now is a VA state trooper!
