Hey guys,

Ive had my 919 for a little over 3 years now, and picked it used with about 4k miles for $5,000 back then. Never was able to find a forum for the 919, and im loving this site so far. I also have a 08 B King I bought new, and had for almost three years. I love both, and always been fan of naked bikes. Been riding since I was 18, and I am 30 now. Here's a few pics.
Enjoy,

Welcome. And introducing 2 bikes means you have to compare the two.

The b king has the same power stock as my old modded 05 Busa LE. I always saw spy shots of the bike, and the possibly of it "coming out". I always said IF if it ever DID come out I'm going to buy one. So sure enough few years later they finally hit production, and I snagged one. Kinda nice being rare now only having one year model made in the states. The bk def has the power, but of course the heavier of the two. Both handle great, and not having clip ons on either I can ride either for a long while. The honda of course gets better mpgs in the high 40s, and the b king is lucky to get 30-35 the way I ride. I can go week or two on a tank in the 919, and the b king just about 3-5 days. The shitty thing on the king is it has a 4.5 gal tank as well to combat its shitty gas milage getting little over a 100 miles to a tank while needing 93 oct as well. But wouldnt get rid of either

Nice machines. I like the King. Looks like you've treated both well.

Welcome to the place. I visit ChiTown at least twice a year. Maybe we'll catch up some day.

Hey there! Welcome. Does anyone else here have a B King? You might be unique. Looks tight with the aftermarket exhaust.

Ya its nice having some on the rarer side, plus was only made one year being 2008. My king also is number 675 out of about 4,000 made world wide, and of course thats even less in the states. First thing I did when I bought it was the slip ons. Saw the cf scorpion cans on ebay with reserve and snatched them up for $350
