add another 919 to the list!

Hi to everyone. My name is Orville and I am from New Castle, Pa. I`m 43 and just went for my first ride in 20 yrs. last week on my `07 919. I gave up riding when my two sons were born because of the obvious risks involved. Anyway, I figured it`s my turn to have some "fun" and man am I EVER!!! I did a lot of research and this site has played a major role in my bike choice. Thanks goes out to all you guys!!

Welcome back (to motorcycling, that is)!
Glad we could help with your choice. My sixth summer with mine and still grinnin'.

I plan to die young, as late as possible.

Me too! I got my lawn tractor at Do-Cut and buy most of my hardware stuff there as well. It is only 4 miles from my house.
