Just got an '07 919, really like it, very light & nimble.
Do you find a lower position is better for your over 50 body or is more upright more comfortable for a 2 or 3 hr ride. I'd like to change handlebars from chrome stock and am wondering if Rental Ultra Lows would be better than Lows or Mediums. What color did get?
When I got my bike it had quite flat bars already in place, and even at 6'1", I found I had to use an up-and-back device to get them in the right place. Very happy with them now, though, have never had back issues on this bike.
