New 919 owner from Michigan

Hello everybody:

Just picked up my slightly used, should say pre owned, 04 919 this afternoon, with a whole 1120 miles on the odo. Have been looking since last fall when I sold my ST1300. Prior to the ST I had a Nighthawk but there is little comparison there.

I see lots of good information on the site, will be spending several lunch hours glued to the forum catching up.

Got to keep the fingers crossed, weather seems to have finally changed, couple more days and the huge piles of snow should be gone, well maybe, it is Michigan!!

Hey there! I used to live in Grand Rapids. You should ride over to the east side of the state and buy Super Sneaky Steve a burger. Send the bill to me.

Welcome and enjoy the ride.
