Wisconsin Rider Saying Hello!

I've had my 2003 Honda 919 for three weeks exactly and it seems to get a littler more fun every day! It's my fifth bike (not all at the same time), and second sport bike (after a Yamaha YZF600R). I mainly use it to get to work and around town but occasionally take a road trip around the state with my neighbor and brother-in-law.

I've been reading all I can since I bought the bike and am already a big fan of this site! Hopefully I can contribute some of my own knowledge in the future.

I drove 45 minutes with cash in hand hoping to buy it, loaded it into my truck and had mini-me waiting at home to help unload it and take it for a ride.

A cheesehead eh? Haha welcome to the site neighbor! Bike looks really clean, I also dig the graphite / grey color. And the bike definitely gets better every ride, don't worry about that.

Does this napkin smell like chloroform? Just kidding baby lemme buy you a drink.
