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.
