Well, the dealer let me bring it home tonight for an overnight extended test drive
I went out of my way today to ride twisties, back roads, city traffic, and highways all afternoon. I've owned small bikes, a Magna, an FZ1, a VN1500 and the ST13. Without a doubt, I had more fun on a motorcycle today than I've ever had. What a blast this bike is! I was doing 12' circles on my first attempts -- I bet this bike is GREAT for timed obstacle courses! So, I've called the insurance agent and told him to write it up.
I'll be taking the 919 back to the dealer tomorrow so they can register, inspect, do a 600 mile maintenance, oil, filter, wash, etc. Is there anything specifc to the bike that I should have them check?
I'll be turning in the ST tomorrow afternoon and bringing the 919 home for good. Happy times!
P.S. I'll be scouring the site for sliders. I've read about some that cause problems so any recommendations are appreciated. I also need to decide between a center stand and a rear stand. For anyone that has the center stand, does it decrease the lean angle capability at all?
