I received this email from Tom, my Honda dealer:
I got news last week that Honda has reduced the cost of 2003 RC51s by $999. If you are still interested in owning one, I can see if any are still available. Let me know.
Thanks for checking but Inga has commandeered my annual bonus for remodeling our bathroom. So no RC51 for me in the near future!
Tip #1: If you buy your building supplies from Big Tony behind the Home Depot and not actually from the Depot itself, you may have enough left over to buy the 51.
Tip # 2: You don’t need a fuzzy toilet seat cover… just don’t clean the existing one for a couple of months and it will have its own natural green fuzzy cover.
Tip #3 : Vinyl flooring is cheaper than tile. If you hang around the city dump long enough, someone (who does not know how to stretch a dollar) is bound to show up with a roll or two.
Tip #4 : You meet the nicest people in public rest rooms. I’ve found Texacos to be quite clean.
Tip #5 : I don’t know of a toilet that can do a buck eighty.
You’re right. The toilet was installed yesterday and while it looks sharp, it’s a dog, performance-wise. Reminds me of that Shadow 750 I used to have back in the late Nineties. Maybe I should put some RC51 decals on it??
The new bathroom turned out great but Inga refuses to let me put a big red Honda wing on the toilet tank. I can’t imagine why.
