New sweet 919 owner saying hello

Greetings all. I just picked up a brand new '07 919 6 days ago. Just went for a ride into the mountains from Colorado Springs and I gotta tell you (as if you don't already know), the girl eats corners like a fat kid on a Smartie (that's like M&Ms to you non-Canadian types)

I'm the only remaining "sport" bike in my local club, as the guy with the R1 moved back to Canada 2 weeks ago. All the other guys ride 2 wheeled Winnebagos (Road Stars, VT1800, bikes with a/c, power everthing, convertable tops and more options than a Bentley) so I found it annoying to stay back with the group. We headed to Bishop Castle on some wicked cool switchbacks and clear roads.

Anyways, if you're in the Colorado Springs area, drop me a line here and maybe we can go bomb around in the mountains.

Cheers,

Spook

Smarties are English, not Canadian.

Spook

You might want to consider changing your handle. "Spook" has a different meaning here in the states. The BBC show "Spooks", changed it's name to "MI-5" before coming over here.
Anyway, welcome!

Hey Spook, welcome aboard!
Don't mind async, he suffers from terminal political correctness.
