I think I'm about to join the club!

I live in Arizona and I have found a dealer that has a 03 in flawless condition with 1100 miles for 8000 out the door. The bike is bone stock and has never seen rain or any other type of bad weather. Does this sound like a good price for the bike? I guess the owner picked it up over a year ago and never rode it because he liked his 1000 rr much better


YEAH, to each his own I guess. Anyway, I am going to go see the bank on monday. Thoughts?

If I do pick up this bike the first thing I am goin to do is put frame sliders on it and get a scotts dampner. Are satos the best sliders made for the bike? I'm also going to do the soft rev and pair mods.

Of course there are other awesome deals out there once in a while, but the 1100 Mi 03 for 8K OTD is a screaming deal too. The bike isn't even fully broken in yet, if it's in great shape and you like the look of the 03', then snap her up. :twocents

I just put a deposit down on the last remaining 04 rc51 that sun honda (den) had. Out the door for 9100! I will be flying up for a day of snowboarding and then driving it back to arizona in a uhaul. Any Az guys on here?I am so stoked as I have been lurking here for quite a long time.

The next time don't think just join. Thinking leads to the pathway of rational thought and that is not fun. Congrats.

I happen to love the silver frame and white number boxes on the '04's. I think it is the sharpest package of all of the RC's

looks like i won't be getting the 04 rc51 from sun honda. I was leaving on tuesday to fly out and pick it up. The sales manager called me today and informed me that one of the guys was unloading it off the truck and dropped it. All the fairings are toast! Those mother ****ers didn't even offer to pay for my air fair which I can't get back. **** those guys

What dealer are you dealing with?


Stay away from the Ride Now group (Metro, YSA, Town & Country, etc)

Sheesh, you must be smokin something!! The stickers add more weight to the Nicky bike, which automatically makes it slower. And everybody, except you, know the 03 is the best looking and the fastest..

And stop smokin what you been smokin too!!

I must say that I disagree. We all know 02 is the best year After all it was the year it won everything. Not to mention its the year I own and that obviously makes it the best by default
