New (to me) 919 in Middle Tennessee

Greetings, everyone, I just became the proud owner of a 919 this very day. It's an 06 with 3400 miles on it. I have been riding a VTX 1800C for the last few years, so you can imagine what I think of the power and handling of the 919: amazing. I actually laughed out loud in my helmet several times on the way home. Before the VTX, it was a 500cc Kawasaki Vulcan that was a great starter bike.

I've been lurking here for a while, and thought I'd join in when I actually had a 919, and today was that day. I've only been on it for 30-40 miles so far, but I'm so jazzed I can't sit still at work. Been out to the parking lot four times since lunch.

I spent time on VTXOA (a VTX forum) for lots of good info on that bike, so I am glad to find a similar spot dedicated to this great bike and it's riders.

Now I just have to wait until the bike tells me her name!

Cheers!
