This type of purchase generally comes before spending on food, clothing and shelter. Buy it.

 

Just slap on an HRC sticker and keep smiling. Pairs well with a Multistrada also.  😎

Yeah,  great buy.   Enjoy!. If I had space and saw an RC51 that clean, I'd have it too. They're aggressive compared to VFRs, definitely not a tourer, but one of those bikes that just work wonderfully for what they're meant to do.

I was thinking in terms of range on a single tank, personally.

 

Tank bag is probably nice for the third or fourth hour on the road. Just that much more to lean against if you have to make a stretch of straight road. When I rode one the first time I found the seating instantly comfortable. Very much a familiar Honda seating position, but it definitely more on your toes, leaned forward some as a track bike should be. Wasn't long before I was comfortable resting with just a little weight on the tank, nestled in there like a monkey humping a football, and totally didn't feel cramped or stretched out.

RC made it home. 11K mile bike with lots of extras. Receipt history for work done incl Racetech sprung/valved forks and shock. Tires on order, need to make some time to go through it and change out all fluids.

Congratulations vfrcapn! I too admire all that red in your garage. You may want to look at new sprockets and chain, going to 15/41 if the previous owner didn't lower the gearing.

 

After a quick refresh, then a spring run over to Icehouse and Wentworth Springs I'd guess. Enjoy.

My amazing wife surprised me this weekend. Unbeknownst to me, she purchased a Nicky Hayden Edition RC51 for me. We went to Grapevine to pick it up yesterday. This bike has been on my bucket list of bikes to own. I am just beyond words. She picked a great one. It has everything I’d add. GPR Steering stabilizer, full exhaust, power commander, smoked windscreen, hot bodies under tail, and more. Just an amazing bike. It is everything I’d dreamed of. So dope.  Seems like many many fellow VFR owners also own RC51's as well.  It just fits doesn't it?  

The other bikes in my garage are my 2014 CB1100, the VFR800, an a project 1981 CX500.

That's a sweet RC51!  I'd love to get a bone stock one some day and just keep it forever.

Sadly... Shopping has been good this year.

 

Last week I picked up a 2007 Honda CBR600RR. The wife has claimed it once it is built.

 

Saturday, I bought a long time dream bike.

That is a very tidy bike. I'm guessing its a 96?

 

So nice to see unmolested mid 90's bikes from the Big 4, they all made some memorable machines.

Needs Chain/sprockets, rear brake master cylinder replacement or rebuild. 

But it does come with a set of BMW side cases. 

$1500 cash.
