Hello, all. I've had my 919 about 2 years. I finally got tired of the typical sportbike seating position and all that plastic. I eased into the naked bike thing by riding a VTR1000 for awhile. At least you could see half the engine on that bike, but I never warmed up to the V-twin thang.
I've been poking around the net on and off for a year, looking for 9'er info and stumbled onto you guys. Excellent.
Yeah, yeah, I suffer with the stinky exhaust, especially when my kid is riding pillion. Been trying different brands of gas, but no luck so far.
Got a road trip this weekend. Hope to cover about 700 miles. I'll let you know how it goes.
Oh yea, it's a total stocker, except for the mirrors. I put rectangular mirrors from a CB250 NightHawk on 'er. They're black and match the bike with a better view behind.
