Howdy....

New here. Not new to bikes/forums/life. Central Indiana native, born and bred. Owned my 1993 CB750 since Nov 1998, been riding it sice March 99. Love the bike, been thinking a lot about a 919 though more and more. I'm an auto-x'er. Love cars/bikes/mowers... basically anythign that moves under it's own power.

Here's my baby:

There's more wax on that bike than paint I think.... lol ... I had it when I was single and detailed it constantly. It's only got 13k miles on it and runs well.

Welcome! I had an 84 NightHawk 650 previous to my 919.
I had about a 3 year hiatus between them, but I feel like they both have more or less the same ergonomics so it was an easy transition.


...the main difference being the wider upper half of the gas tank & more power of course.

Abba Zaba, you my only friend.

So, you're saying that you like to take prison showers with big hairy scary men with man-boobs picking up soap on the floor?

Oh, sorry ... Barton already has that position.

Hoosiers are just a bunch of Kentuckian's on their way to Chicago when the car broke down.

Run me off? HA! You gotta do better than that.
