New 919 in Ohio

Hello from North central Ohio on the shores of Lake Erie, I got a 07 919 yesterday and hope I like it as much as I like my 78 kz1000 ltd. I'm 57 yrs. old and like the upright seating position of the kz. I noticed the 919 seems a little too pitched forward right now so I'll either get used to it or maybe go to a higher bar. No mods till the warranty runs out and can't wait to start putting on some miles on her.

Welcome aboard kawboy13.

Just so you know, any mods in the form of an after market bolt-on do not void your warranty. Goggle "magnuson-moss act" for details.

Welcome to WT, the unofficial worldwide information center for 919s...

Say, does anyone know the count of 919 owners registered as WT members? There seems to be about 3 or 4 joining per week.

Welcome, my other ride is a 1980 BMW R80, and I am 50, but the 919 delivers so many more smiles/mile: )

...nothing left to do, but smile, smile, smile...

I'm another 919 rider new to WT. Anytime you google anything about a 919 it takes you here, so I figured I'd sign up.

Older and upright.

At 45 yoa, like you I took home a F7 900 Hornet (That's what they are called in Oz) in December 08, and have just clocked 7000 km. I also liked it because it is comfortable enough for me to ride nearly all day (with a sheepskin seat cover), and can go hard enough when I feel the urge.

Stay upright!
