n00b from Texas

Hello from Texas. I have been a YouTuber for just over two years (mainly carvlogs, cars and coffee and some car reviews) and always wanted to add some motorcycle content. I had a moto license back in the Netherlands and rode my dad's XJ900 around for years, but never got one stateside until this year.

Now I am hunting for a bike, and the 919 strikes my fancy. I will be looking in the forums since there is a wealth of info here on the 919.

Welcome man and good luck in your search. There are usually some fine bikes for sale here as well as people with good and bad Craig's List finds.

Howdy! I can only assume we can expect some new reviews to surface stating how the 919 is basically the coolest bike ever lol. Welcome!

30,000 mile 919 survivor. No plans of stopping the abuse any time soon.

Thanks, and it is probable.. If I can land my butt on one and have some decent seat time to make an educated opinion.

Been in Amsterdam, but I am more a fan of Utrecht. Same thing, less of a tourist trap I suppose and I went to school there. I bet I could still find my way to "king arthur" blindfolded... LOL!

I haven't been back in a while. I hope to rectify that in the coming two years!
