Checking in! Been riding a 03, 750 Shadow since, well, 2003. Actually, I've been riding Honda for quite some time now. I've been eyeing the 919 for about two years, and recently purchased a used 06 (12 miles on the odo, if that can be considered used) for $5600. I prefer doing my own wrenching, so I'll be reading all the technical stuff to personalize this ride. The wife wants to know why I need two motorcycles, and I have responded with all the expected results, (because I can; a man can never have enough motorcycles in the garage; one's for work, one's for play, etc. etc.). Looking forward to joining the forum.
