New 2007 in the garage

Not mine but did bring it home from the dealer for the wife today. It is her 1st new bike and she is way to excited. She doesn't have alot of seat time since she started riding but she started out on an old 500 shadow then to a 1986 ZL600 and now to the 919. She putts all over on that 600 but the 919 is 3" taller in the seat. The 600 has a severe case of age catching up with it so it was time to get her a new one.
Since here in St. Louis there are not many warm days this time of year it will be in the garage for awhile.

I am 52 and have always had at least 1 running bike since I was 16. Right now I have a 2000 ZRX1100, 2001 ZRX1200 that is stretched 6" 1224 kit with headwork and cams and a 2004 K1200GT beemer.

I had to attempt to put her in her place and told her the 9 could not beat the crap out of a dirty diaper and she said maybe not but it will beat you.
It did not go as planned as you could tell.

Forgot to add

And guess who told me to get off HER bike at the dealership in a rather loud tone of voice in the showroom. The wimmins in the place looked at me like you know your place and the men folk looked at me like I bet she has your balls too.

I swear it does not pay to be nice to them.........
