Thumbs up New PROUD 919 owner from Saskatchewan, Canada

I've been riding bikes since I was 12 years old. Yamaha RT100, Honda XL250R, '87 Yamaha Radian 600 (still own) and JUST picked up my NEW 2007 Honda 919. Have had my eye on these bikes since their inception in '02. As a student I could never afford one. Was lucky enough to test ride one in 2003 here in Saskatoon, SK, Canada and I never forgot that ride. So snappy and comfortable. I compared it to my Radian on roids. Sexy lookin, torky, wheelie-bound, fast, snappy, bendy, twisty, fun fun FUN! As time went on, and the advent of the 919 came to an end in '07, I quickly found myself scrambling to finish university (I "really enjoyed" my university experience) and upon graduation in 2010, I started working fulltime. LUCKILY!!!!!!!!!!!! an advertisement on our local "kijiji" website spoke of a 2007 919 just 20 minutes away from where I live with 1000 kilometers on it!!!!!! I POUNCED!!!! All stock except for a smoke-screened fly screen. The bike isn't even fully broken in yet. Came from Labrador, Canada, purchased in 2008 by an RCMP officer, shipped to Saskatoon, drove a few hundred miles on her and parked it in the garage. The roads in Saskatchewan are not all high quality and he didn't enjoy riding here. I grew up riding here and was so happy to find the bike of my dreams for half the new price, for a VERY NEW bike! I'm proud to find this forum. Cheers,

Rogan
Saskatoon, SK, Canada

Welcome Rokman, congrats on the new 919. I also have an '07 and I still love it as much as the day I drove it off the showroom floor. You have many great miles ahead of you. Enjoy!

Welcome, I saw a Uranium green 919 last summer driving through
Saskatchatoon, on the north-west part of the city by the truckstop.

If you're moving to Calgary I'm sure we will meet this summer.

Pvser can't ban anyone, including himself. He just can't help it. Ignore him, the more time you spend around here, the more you will see what I'm talking about

Haha. So true. If he could ban he'd be here all by himself.

Maybe that's what PVster needs, some *alone* time....


Although, he just got married. Cue Homer Simpson voice *something's wrong.....*
