well guys, here is rick's former and now new to me 919. bike had 12,296 miles on it when i paid cash for it. i will not disclose the amount to respect rick's privacy. if he wishes to disclose it, that's up to him. i was shocked by how smooth the tranny shifted compared to my other 919. like butter. hated the exhaust sound at first, but it's grown on me and might just leave it instead of throwing on my two bros exhaust (keep an eye out, might go up for sale lol).
here are pix of the road trip, the bike when purchased, and how she stands now.
being a retard after loading up on huge amounts of coffee within the first hour of the drive.
her looks when purchased
bike loaded up and ready to go. keeping rick's face hidden as i dont want everyone to go crazy after being exposed to his face
couldnt of done it without this beautiful girl. still dont understand what she sees in me. but hey, she stuck around for 8 months, i'm not complaining! 1100 miles:drove down, picked up the bike, and back home in less than 24 hours.
as she stands now. already added grips and bar end mirrors. rick had some bar end weights with mounting points for the mirrors machined and apparantly just got them after we agreed on a price, so he gave em to me free of charge. what a brilliant idea he had and i made quick use of it. loving the whole front end look minus the turn signals. they WILL get replaced. i've got my eye on the led signals from that guy will or whatever his name is in canada
for some reason, the corbin seat doesnt bother me looks wise like it does for most people. yeah theres a noted difference in terms of looks, but i dont mind it. and there you have it boys and girls, more mods to come... AFTER i get back from florida lol, along with a list of items that will be up for sale to forum members
note: the 599 headlight is already spoken for, it's getting installed on THIS 919, sorry lol.
