New from Down Under

Hi all, I not long ago picked up my 07 919 or cb 900f hornet as it’s known here. I’ve been putting plenty of seat time in since I’ve owned it and I’m having a ball. This is my first road bike. I’ve ridden dirt bikes most of my 44 years and I’m only just now finding out what I was missing.
There’s a lot of cross over but there’s also a lot for me to learn that’s road bike specific. So far all I can say is I’m really enjoying the 919 and I’m thankful for forums such as this, as I’m sure I’ll be needing some help before long. Looking forward to sharing the experience with like minded folk.
Dale.

Prepare your wallet for tires, suspension work, gear ratio change and a PWC3 to get the bike up to snuff performance wise :P
