New 919 in Michigan

Hey Guys,

After driving a 500 mi round trip ride on my old '75 Honda 550SS, decided it was time for a new bike! Sold that and picked this up a few weeks ago, already put about 800 miles on it and I love the bike.

Thanks!

What I had..



What I have now...

Thanks, came with it. So did the back rack, but I only put that on for longer trips.

Thanks guys! I'm from the sterling heights area of Michigan. I loved that 550, but for the amount of riding I do it was definitely time for a newer bike.
