Thanks for the replies and welcomes guys!
I was shocked to find one this new/low miles. I have never heard of a bike 10 years old with almost no miles. Just a unique scenario and perfect timing.
I don't mean to make anyone jealous, but I am very happy to have found this one
I posted a few pics in the pictures section of the forum (don't have a link handy though).
I have to step out, but I will post more pictures soon.
I had 2012 Aprilia Tuono to compare the 919 to. I will be sure to give a comparison to the Tuono after some more seat time.
I know the normal progression would be to be a 919 then Tuono, but for me it was not about progressing. I've had a number of bikes and the 919 is what decided would be my "keeper" bike (a bike that I will hang on to for years when other bikes come and go because of upgrading to the newer/better version or another model or when they are getting up there in miles). It is a great all around motorcycle (from what I've read and initial impressions, I've only had about 300 miles seat time mostly on the ride home from buying her).
So far the Tuono was my favorite streetbike so far (not counting the 919 yet). I've had a CBR600f3, a couple R1's, and other street bikes as well as trying out various bikes to compare that to. I would not be surprised if I buy another Tuono at some point. You really can't go wrong with one.
It is good to hear about the reliability and how well 919's hold up. That is Honda for you, known for their reliability among other good qualities. That is another reason that I plan on keeping my 919 until the wheels fall off
Well speaking of bikes, it is time for a ride.
Have a good one and thanks again for the warm welcome!
