New from SC

Hi just joined. I own a 2003 ZRX. Really enjoy the bike. Before I bought this I was looking at the 919. Always wondered if I made the right choice. Like both bikes, sat on a 919 but never got to ride one. Actually felt better seating postion. Have been thinking lately about possibly making a change. Noticed alot of folks here ride the 919 hoping to gain additional knowledge. Thanks!

Those are really nice bikes.
One of my best friends has a green 1200.
If one wants a tube framed bike reminisce of the good old days, these are THE bikes to get.
Love that swingarm !

Welcome! I always loved the look of the ZRX, if it had a round headlight it would look stellar!

Beautiful color, never seen that blue on one before.

Same here love the look of the Z-Rex. Based off of my old '81 GPz550. Was looking at one when I sold the GPz but found the 919 and fell in love. Welcome to the site!

I think anyone that likes one of the 2 (919 or ZRX), likes the other. I was looking for a ZRX a couple years ago too. Thats when I found a 919 locally..... rest is history

I always stop and stare at a ZRX when I see one

Thanks for the welcomes! Really first question about the 919 that comes to mind, is how long you can ride without disomforts? The ZRX just doesn't quite fit me and I can ride for about 2 hrs and then the butt is sore I'm getting cramped etc. I've tried a couple of different seats but went back to the stocker. So my first question is how are the ergonomics of the 919 for a days ride?
