almost new on 919

Hi.
Just an intro about me. Started riding at 16 then stopped for a couple of years, but came right back. Like many things in life. Teach for a living and scuba when I can. Even though I wanted a 919 forever, I finally found one. Dealership in Florida still had a “new” 2007 (76miles), will take delivery of it this Saturday.
Looking forward to good times.

i don't remember rolling back the odo......

but i do remember riding it like a adult and never speeding (it never exceeded 55 mph.) and i totally think wheelies are bad .. not to mention illegal...

i only rode it to church every morning where i prayed for world peace and swept the front steps of the church and then weedeated the cemetary...

i also changed the oil every 150 miles so as not to damage anything from oil breakdown..

Thank you and I plan to be safe - had my quota of crashes when I was a lot "smarter" and all grown up.
Actually completed a riding course not too long ago - learned a thing or two I did not know.
