Thumbs up newbee

Hello from sunny FL,

I am 63 years young. I've been riding motorcycles since I was 16. Right now I have a Honda 919 and love it. I had a Honda VT1100 ACE and got rid of it because of the salt air here on the ocean. I bought my 919 in 05 . It was a left over o4. It is extremely difficult taking care of chrome with all of the salt air. The more plastic the better. When I was looking for a fast bike it really didn't know much about the 919 at all. I was looking for something to sit upright on and the 919 was the best I could find. I'm strictly a Honda guy. After I bought it, my son, who also rides, told me what I had. He said that it is a rocket and is great to ride. Just be careful of first gear. I'v been riding it for 4 years now and wouldn't trade it for anything. So, that's a little bit about me. I'll be reading the forum quite often now and I'm sure that I will pick up some very good info.

Hello and welcome. Plenty of information on here on how to spend money on mods for the 9'er.

This site confirms we live in a universe of opposites. At my work, there is an unusually high concentration of clusterf***s. Alternately, on this site, there is an unusually high concentration of truly knowledgeable, helpful people.
