Welcome, bro! Like I told you on MH, you're gonna love this site. It's a great place, and open for all bikes, but especially now that you're riding the 919. Go to the naked section for all your 919 Qs.

Warning, though... this forum is half the reason I have been bitten by the modding bug.

Oh... and check out Thunderdome! I'm up against a bad azz 1000RR, and he's spanking me!!

(Of course, only vote for me if you like my 919 better... hehehe...).

Here's a couple of pics of AJ's bike, alongside mine. Just took these today.




I gotta say, it felt good to get back on my bike and ride it!!

welcome, I don't think I'd like the black/yellow/black on any other bike but it's not bad on the 919, fits the hornet theme.

You should have accepted my wife's offer to stay for dinner! She prepared some AWESOME Thai dish... the kind of stuff you will not find in restaurants. Authentic.
