New to WT

Just thought I would introduce myself. I am new to WT, though I have owned a Honda in the past I am new to the 919. Originally, I was looking for a 750 GSXR, when I was shown a 919 at a shop. I eventually took it for a test ride, I was very surprised how light the 919 felt. Didn't buy the 919 at that time, waiting for finaces to improve before I buy one.

I originally had a Honda Shadow (1995). It's been awhile since I have ridden.

Welcome!

If the 919 you saw was new, Honda's got their 3.99% for 36 months financing back up, and the dealers are hungry and happy to deal.

Welcome, the red 919 is nice but the older grey one is much faster.
