First timer

Hi,
Finally register so I could be a newbie! Just last month I cured the midlife crisis with a 05 919. It’s my first street bike and for those first timers deciding over a 919 or 599, get the 919. I plan on doing a fender and blinker mod, looking for advice on which brands to use.

Welcome aboard... Congrats on you fine purchase. The fender mod. is easy, all that is needed is a fine tooth hand saw, a file, and a piece of sand paper. Mark off where you want to cut then go to it. What did you have in mind for the blinker mod.? Do you want something like this?

Oh Lord, Mike has contributed. Your bike and wallet will never be the same again. Welcome to the madness. Probably a good thing you are in TX and not CT, or you'd be taking out 2nd mortgages and such.

James, are you trying to ruin my creditability with the newbie's?

No sir, just carrying out my sworn duty to uphold the sanctity of new mod madness. Now where did I put that list of members to avoid at all costs?

Welcome iion. Don't talk to Mike, you'll spend the next few months slobbering/ordering/waiting on shipments/installing/taking pics/getting big grins. You'll also go throught withdrawels................the bank kind.
