New 919 Owner

Hi gents!

Been lurking for a bit (a few posts here and there for clarification questions) but I just got my 919. =) 06 model, I am the third owner. It's pretty clean. Paid a bit more than I wanted, but oh well....

I don't have pictures of my own, and I'll have to clean it before I take them - I rode it home, to the tune of about 350 miles (500km - I'm in Canada). I'll include the ones the seller took. It had just over 30K km's, which is about 20K miles, when I started the ride home. New front and rear tires, new chain and sprockets (which I suppose precludes LDH's 520 kit for a while!). Only modifications are Pro Taper bars and bar-end mirrors, rest is bone stock.

So far, very pleased. Coming from an RC51, so the comfort is very very nice. =) I'll have a separate thread with some more pointed questions in a bit, I'll add a link to it. But, just wanted to say hi, nice to meet you all, and thanks in advance! =)

The RC/919 crowds seem to intermingle very nicely! Did you want to sell me your RC51 now since I don't have one at the moment?

The RC actually is for sale! =) But I've got what I think to be a pretty solid buyer in the sails. Too bad we're so far away - the bike was actually an American import (by the previous owner), and I used to be posted in Saskatchewan, very close to where you are!
