Hello all,

My name is Robert, and I purchased my first and second RC51 about a year and a half ago. I immediately fell in love with this bike the first time I rode it. I have been riding since I was 8 years old, and the RC51 is my 13th street bike, but I have never fallen in love with a bike like I have with the RC51. I am 43 years old, but I still ride em like I stole em. However, my real talent is building/restoring neglected bikes and specialty parts. I'm new to the forum, but I have read a lot on this website ever since I purchased my RC51. I figure I'm going to keep my 02 SP2 for the rest of my life, so I bought the lifetime membership. I'm eager to learn, and I am happy to help where I can. I live in Winston Salem, NC, so there is always good riding here if anyone is in the area. Hit me up if you wanna ride or need anything else! I included a pic of my 2 builds right now, which are the 02 SP2 of course, and a 2003 GSXR-1000 K3. Both received new wheels, suspension, and brakes all around. Anyway, I'm happy to finally be a paying member of this forum and I look forward to learning as much as I can about the RC51 and meeting folks who enjoy riding as much as I do...

Cheers,

Robert

PS - I have a ton of OEM and aftermarket parts that I'm cleaning out if anyone is interested? Some parts include like ladybird slip-ons, a Jardine electropolished 2-into-1 exhaust, a full set of SP2 OEM fairings, a set of sharkskin fairings, forks, dampers, etc... Hit me up if you have parts needs, as I'm cleaning out my garage. I'll post some parts here as well...

Hey Robert,

It looks like you posted the pictures for our Australian members.

The RC does have a way with getting ahold of one's soul. Mine has firm grasp on mine.

I live coastal NC, just south of OBX, but I truck the RC out to Asheville a few times a year. Next time I'm out that way I'll let you know.

Welcome aboard,
James

I've lusted after one for ages mainly down to the looks and heritage. When I rode a friends I knew I wasn't wrong and it had to be done but it had to be a mint low mileage example (in black).
