A RC51 was the first liter bike I ever threw a leg over. Scared the crap out of myself in about 45 seconds. Best I could afford at the time was a used GSXR1100 that kept me busy for a few years but it wasn't the same. I had a coworker selling one last year for next to nothing and it took every inch of willpower I could muster not to bring it home.

Congrats on the new scoot

That one looks super clean! So many of them are roughz my riding buddy has one, the 750 turbo will pull on him until about 100mph, when the displacement takes over. Those bikes (and the fireblade) will appreciate more than any 2000s sportbike IMO. Take care of her and safe riding!

My son had a wild hair up his ass and picked up a cbr1000rr before he checked the ins on it. Full coverage was 250/mo. I rode it once. It was quick no doubt but give me my buell anyday. I do like honda though and miss my 10 crf250r.
Nice bike... congrats

I assumed it was going to be some ugly boring cruiser when I saw the title. I've always loved RC51s, havent been lucky enough to take one for a ride though. That one looks especially nice! I'd love to own one but I've also never heard them come up in conversation without hearing about how uncomfortable they are haha. Enjoy it!

Nice looking bike. I had the privilege to ride a race prepared bike that was scaring the crap out of its owner. After I rode it I thought it was an incredibly fun bike, I told him to the bike runs just fine and man up.

Thanks everyone. Looking forward to slinging it around. Has to be more comfortable than the S1W! I don't mind a little discomfort, keeps me on my toes.

Thanks again, Go Chiefs!

BTW, this doesn't mean I am giving up any of my Buells!

RC51 is definitely one of my favorite Hondas!

I picked up a new V-twin also this year.
Didn't get rid of any of my Buells, in fact, added another tuber this summer.
This thing is a screamer, and easily beats anything that was currently in my garage, which, of course, makes it a great addition!
