I picked up a 05 RC51 a couple of weeks ago. Man I love this thing, more comfortable than my old CBR900rr. The sound with the Satos is amazing.
Here are a few pics. Has all the goodies just need to change the gearing.

Satos
Corbin Seat
Helibars
KN air/oil filters
Trex Frame sliders
flush mount signals
undertail
PCIII / Dan Kyle map

I didnt even know helibars would fit with that cockpit, do you hit your hands on the fairing when you hit the steering stop? Anyway looks great. Definitely a bike i would not mind owning, wish honda still made it!

thanks

thanks for all the comments guys. I put around 200 miles on the beast last weekend. Man this bike is fun. we kept a good pace nothing stupid. We rode
trails on Sat (stayed at a buddies cabin)then rode the street bikes up thru blueridge - morganton down 60 thru Suches then back to Dawsonville. I love the sound of this thing coming out of corners. We found a new way to load the bikes in the truck too.

Ah man. Two V-twins rumbling through the mountains! The townspeople must've got skirred! Did you guys swap bikes for a bit? I'm wondering how that Prilla compares to the RC.

We also ride with a guy that has a Superhawk with Jardins. It has to sounds pretty ominous. My brothers Mille is real nice, he has never let me ride his, but I have never let him ride my RC either. We were at TWO and his Italian Diva gets all the comments, then I fire mine up with the Satos and it will get some looks.

From 2003 Masterbike at Jerez:

2003 Aprilia RSV-R Lap 1.53.842, 120hp, 74tq, 426lbs wet

2003 Aprilia RSV Lap 1.55.178, 116hp, 74tq, 463lbs wet

2003 Honda RC-51 Lap 1.56.660, 122hp, 73tq, 482lbs wet

The RC-51 is my second favorite V-Twin.

Awesome bike. Congrats! :cheers
