Howdy ya`ll from wyoming!

Hello everybody! New member, and new 06 919 owner from Wyoming. I grew up on two wheels, but it was mostly in the dirt riding our endless off road trails. Just recently picked up the niner to make the smoother roads a little less boring.Bought it with a little over 15,000 on the clock a few months ago, and just rolled it to 20,000 today I've had a few street bikes before (06 vstar 1100, 03 cbr600rr, 198? Yamaha maxim, and a pile of dirt bikes) The niner isn't the fastest, best handling, or prettiest (I've done a few "function over form" mods, think windshield) but its seen more pavement than the other three combined. Any who, this looks like a great group, and I plan on sticking around for a while happy trails all!

I guess I'd better post a picture or two of the trusty steed

Damn I'm genuinely jealous of your home. I so want to make it out to WY. Welcome to the fray.

Hello and welcome- I haven't had the opportunity to spend any time in Wyoming- but I have heard it is beautiful.

If you get rid of those stock bars and replace them with just about anything else (lots of us use renthal ultra low's) you will find it is much easier to stay on the bike for longer periods of time.

Stick around and have fun!

Howdy. Been thru Wyoming once. I wasn't sure anyone lived there. You have got a LOT of room to spread out, that's for sure.

Love that country up there. I've spent some time in the park and on it's outskirts.

My buddy has some land just west of Quake Lake in Montana. Great fishing on the river.
