Hi everybody! Soon to be joining the club of owners!

I'm buying a 2003 r model with 5k miles on her.
I'm going to look at her Tuesday and make the sale if it is up to snuff as it should be for that low of miles.
Wondering if you guys can give me model specific issues to look for on the test drive and visual inspection. I already know about possible vibration issues at speed, and the obvious things of sitting around (rubber cracks, flat spots on tires, etc.).
Thanks in advance guys (and ladies!)
Btw I am PSYCHED to finally have my own bike, and such a reliable, cool bike at that. Already read thru mods, researched parts and saw the seat mod place in the sticky (I'm 6'5", pretty sure I'm gonna wanna sit closer to the back fender. Hoping the bars are not too far back if I do that. Also praying I can keep the floorboards and not have to buy forwards)

Thanks guys! I'm in Eastern ny.

headcase- do you use the stock bars? Was wondering if they pulled back too much, and the c models might fit me better.
