New 919

Trying like the three bears to find the bike that is just right. Cruiser didn't do it for me. Only good for straight lines. Sportbike was uncomfortable. I also wanted the bigger engine. I commute to work everyday, 40 miles round trip, so I needed practical and fun. The dealer still had this unsold '06 still on the floor, amidst the racy new gixxers and cbrs. At any rate, so far so good on the 919. Only downside is the lack of dedicated forums, but this seems to be the place where most owners hang out.

Hello and welcome. The rest of the 9'er owners are definitely here.

You made a great choice. Although the 9er was not my first bike, it's the one I ride most often for fun. I can ride my gixxer, until my knees won't straighten. I have a cruiser bike, but not much fun to ride, relegated as the loaner bike. The 919 is certainly my favorite ride on the street. Welcome.

riding is an addiction, no matter what you ride.
