Thanks to all you guys for the info on this site. When I got it in my head to get another bike, this site help me decide what to buy.
I've had my '03 919 for a week now and I'm one happy camper. Some of you may have seen it on eBay a short time ago. The seller bought it for his wife in '04 and after lessons she got spooked and quit riding. Only 111 miles on the clock. So I got a 'new' bike without the new price.
I've started the cleaning up the lighting and will no doubt get around to some of the lighter performance mods.
