I just bought an 03 last winter with 36k miles on it. The thing starts right up with no smoke and runs strong. All I needed was reseal the forks and a changed all the fluids and I'm off riding! As long as the bike was treated well I think it'll last a long time. It's a liquide cooled V twin, they tend to last a lot longer than air-cooled. Btw, it's a Honda! They last forever! (knock on wood)Does 15K+ sound like alot of mileage for these bikes?
If treated reasonably well how many miles can I expect to get from an RC-51?
