New 919 Owner
I am a new 919 owner, but I have been riding for over 30 years.
I had a Yamaha FZ1 before this bike, I kicked around a 06 FZ1, or a 919 Honda. The 06 FZ1 has some issues that a lot of owners are unhappy about, and seem to be not fixable at this time (efi problems, vibrations). When I bought my FZ1 the 919 was one of my choices.
I am a mechanic at the police dept., My wife also has her own bike, we ride about 10K miles per year.
