Congratulations Matress. The 919 is a pretty neat little naked. Please, photos when you can!

Re: A 919 followed me home today

Couldn't resist, took it for a test ride, comfy bike (exactly why I bought it), fast, fun, sucker hauls azz too. *I went on the freeway and hit about 90, wind blast isn't bad at all, it's worse on the RC since I don't tuck on the freeway like a rice racer wannabe and the blast comes over the bike and slams into my neck and face. *Suspension is pretty cushy, not ideal for twisties I'm sure....but that's not why I bought it, twisties will just be on the side . *Overall, very happy so far, can't wait to take it out tomorrow, many mods (small, nothing major) are already brewing in my head, but I'm not going to do much to it, I'll probably leave the stock exhaust on. *The throttle is a little snatchy like my 929 was, but not nearly as bad, definately liveable, I got used to it already on my short 15 mile ride. *I think I'm going to put the set of M1's sitting in my garage on it.

...I'll get some photos just for you Chain from the mountains tomorrow

It's a brand new 02 the dealer had sitting for quite a while, but they're all the same, so it didn't matter to me

Damn stray 919's, there ought to be a leash law!

Congrats on the new bike. If you find you don't like it I am starting a pound for them.

Thanks Matt! Also, as to your mods, the least you should do is nix the mudflap, install a set of Suburban Machinery bars (had 'em on my SV - they are outstanding), a lone bar end mirror on the left, and a set of Sato cans.

Lookie me spending your money for ya.
