I only bought mine so I'd have something to ride while narrowed down the bikes on my list.
But after riding it for a couple of months, I've grown very attached to it.
I test rode the Kawasaki Z900RS but didn't think it was any better.
Also rode the new Honda CB1000R and same thing, the 919 is fun to ride, and does most things very well.
My 919 only had 9000klm's on it, and after fitting all the aftermarket stuff, it's still $10,000 AU cheaper.
Will probably never sell it.
