Back to basics with a 919.
The 919 had never really been on my radar. I was much more interested in multistradas, Tuonos and speed triples. When I get tired of working around all the quirks, I usually run back to the safety of a vfr (gen 5 being my favorite). And that’s exactly what I was looking for when I found my bone stock ‘07 919 with 11,700 miles on the clock. What a fantastic all around bike.
I had a checklist of “upgrades” ready to improve the 919 and 700 miles later, none of them are needed. One exception may be the seat and even that my be as simple as a pad for longer rides as I’m fairly comfortable for 1 1/2 hours.
I look forward to picking through all the good advice this site has to offer.
