New Guy from Australia

Hi Guys, this is my first post.
Bought a new Honda 900 Hornet (919) about two months ago after a couple of years break from motorcycling. Last 3 bikes were Yamaha YZF1000, '01 GSXR1000 and Suzuki SV650S. Absolutely loved the GSXR1000 but never really had the skill or confidence to use it. Crashed and bought the SV650 and never really liked it.
It's only early days on the 919 but I am having a blast. Seem to spend more time in the garage with it though...our three year old will soon be starting preschool.
I've added a few accessories (imported from the US and saving heaps) including
--Radiator Guard
--Tank pad and fuel cap cover
--Yoshimura TRS Tri Oval Carbon Fibre slip ons
--Competition Works Fender Eliminator
--Pazzo Levers
--Goodridge Braided lines
--Front marker lights
Have a few other in boxes ready to install:
--Renthal Ultra Low Handlebars
--CRG Hindsight LS Mirrors
--Power Commander
--WR rearset
Should be good when all done. i'll post a photo of how it looks so far shortly.

Howdy. You've got the mod bug. You'll never be done.

Thats one of the best colors I've seen on a 9'er...kinda similar to Ridin' Ryan's...the recent photos in white looks great too.
