Greetings from Northern Michigan

I'm a new 919er from Traverse City, Mi. I got my new '06 919 last September and because of this seemingly never ending winter, haven't had much riding time. I haven't had a motorcycle since I was in high school (I'm now 50) so I'm a newbie. I took the MSF course last summer and have been practicing what I learned. I'm looking forward to lots of riding this summer!

Welcome, I'm not sure of the stats but I think there are quite a few of us 'ol boys getting back into bikes and the 919 is a smart choice in my view.

Hello and welcome.

Welcome from SW Michigan, I'm just about at 60 and bought my 919 to get back to riding. Comfortable ride and fast enough to put the fear of god into me again.

God I miss Traverse City! I used to visit there often when I lived in Michigan. I'm craving a monster Boones prime rib and the 12 hours of induced coma afterward. Wouldn't you get more use form a snowmobile?

No doubt TC is a beautiful place...especially in summer, I feel blessed. I live about 2 miles from Boone's.

For years, I worked outside in the snow and cold and a snowmobile is about the last thing I wanted to get on; LOL!
