So my brother just bought a 2003 rr with 2500 miles for $5000 yesterday. I had the pleasure of riding it home from about an hour away from home. It was 48 F out and raining. Any way that bike felt like a dog compared to mine. I have never riden a rr other than mine until then. It just seemed slow. I didn't realize that a slipon and two down in the rear would make that much of a differance.
