Recently sold my Triumph Tiger 1050 & was wanting a more fun street bike. Read about the 919, love the styling & looks so picked this up last week. It's an '07 with lots of great mods & low miles. I immediately got rid of the stock levers & bars, replaced with shorty levers & Renthal bars. This bike is so nimble & lightweight compared the Tiger. It's like riding a small sports car compared to a large city bus. I now take corners with more confidence & enthusiasm. I also feel like the 919 is simply an extension of me, planted & predictable. I'm really going to enjoy riding & wrenching on this bike. Hope to help contribute & share ideas with you all here.
