Bought an 03 919 in black. Came with some nice looking Remus Carbon Fiber exhaust. I bought it Oct 3rd and have about 1700 miles on it since. It's starting to rain/snow in Colorado now, so I won't be able to keep up that pace.
Oh and I came off an F4i I sold while I lived in Germany. And a VFR 750 before that in CA. I'm glad I had the F4i in Germany but I think for me, the 919 is better suited for the riding I have done on the front range in CO.
