What are your other bikes?

I've always been into the ADV scene but ruled it out for now since I'm a poor graduate student. Two things happened recently: [1] I picked up a cheap '99 DR650 and love it and [2] rode a Triumph Tiger 800 XRX at a demo day at my local Triumph Dealer (free beer, vodka and good company - love when a dealership is actually genuine and welcoming).

Anyway, I'm slightly flirting (emphasis on slightly) with the idea of getting a single Triumph Tiger (or similar) to replace both my DR and my 919. It has enough pep for me but is also more comfortable and better accommodates long trips with occasional gravel roads.

That said, I'm already starting to miss my 919 at the mere idea of selling her haha. What other bikes do you have? How do you satisfy your competing motorcycle additions?

haha love it! that would be way too much for me to handle. I like to cycle through bikes, keep them for a year or two, work on them, sell them, even if at a loss. all worth it to learn about each bike, the culture behind it, and get some cool skills in the process. The 919 is the first one I've even considered keeping for a while!

I'm in the same situation. Broke college student i love the idea of adv bikes (never owned one). I have my beautiful 919 for long adventure trip and commuting to my University and my city/hooligan/commuter honda grom for city riding. I use the grom for short trips, commuting to work (5 mile commute), and commuting to community college (near by). I use my honda grom more than my 919 now. The grom is here to stay. I have been thinking about getting a V strom 650 but I don't think I can justify getting rid of my 919 for a strom. I'll be test riding one in November to see if i like. Personally i wouldn't buy any European bike. I just don't trust any non Jap motorcycle manufacture.

1. Hey change your sig! The GS500 was my first bike too and I loved it ha
2. What prompted you to buy a grom? I never understood the appeal. Maybe I'm too large of a person for one idk
3. No European bike? But KTM is Austrian, BMW is German and they make the arguably top ADV bikes. Let alone that Ducati is Italian. Triumph is British and paved the way for early 70s CBs to be considered the first "superbikes". Where's the hangup?

1. My gs500 is down. I'm too lazy to fix it lol. Wow we have a lot in common.

2. I bought my grom because most of my commute is less than 5 miles. I wouldn't have bought it if i lived in a less populated area. It's super easy to lane split too.

3. I'm sure they're great bikes but I'm biased. I just like japanese cars and motorcycle. But hey what do i know I'm just a stupid 21 yr old lol. I'm also cheap lol. Most jap bikes are cheaper than the Euro bikes.

I say you get rid of the klr and buy the tiger. If you really love it then decide if you want keep or sell the 919. Life is short!

Haha if I remember correctly, 99% of GS problems are carby related. Loved that bike. Really want to pick up an old gen 1 to turn it into a scrambler. Not necessarily to keep but more for the emotional connection. Regarding the grom I see I see that makes sense. I think I would opt for a scooter in that case (really want an old vespa). You can see the recurring problem here is I want a lot but PhD stipends support very little of my addiction lol.

I don't like the idea of buying bikes on credit so if I got the Tiger I'd have to sell the DR and the 919. Not quite sure I'm ready for that. Mines an '02 and it's perfect for my needs. Super functional the 919 is

I actually have the carb cleaned but my tank is rusty so i have to clean it out. I tried with vinegar twice but the rust came back within seconds lol. I did recently pick up a 1996 gs500 from some guy (no paperwork just for parts) for $50. I would buy a ruckus if i were to buy a scooter.

I wouldn't finance a bike either. The 919 is a great bike but everyone seems to love triumph's triples. Good luck!

I like it a lot. Good ergonomics, good brakes, good suspension, great power... I did a 1,700 mile trip on her in a week last year and loved every second. Im a torque junkie and really like ripping her around. The 919 is a bit more tame and set up for commuting mostly.

The tank has a nice big scull sticker that's been clear coated over just to make me happy and proud of the seller's handy work. I never cover it up at intersections...

New paint will be applied this winter by a buddy of mine (paints high end customized semi trucks daily) for the cost of materials and replace all the oem decals. Gotta decide on a color.

Right now I've got the custom 919 I scored back in March, my 3rd 919 that I've owned so I guess it's a thing now:



2nd 919, mostly stock '07, replacement for the first that I totaled. Probably gonna let this one go before the tabs are up again in October. Street triple R belongs to my friend... those are nice bikes, but I dunno if they're three times as nice as a 919, and that's what they cost so I'll never own one



the Asshole Enabler Machine aka WR450f supermoto that I really, really don't need...



and my little NX250 that just got a new clutch, tires, and bodywork fasteners (those are load-bearing zipties thank you) but has no tabs so I keep it at work and borrow a dealer plate when I want to ride it. It's the perfect little work errand/lunch runner, and once I get the reg situation sorted out it'll probably become my bad weather commuter bike too

Yeah. It's one of a kind, that's for sure. As much as that scull pisses me off, simple cosmetics can be addressed easily enough. The engine is what made me say yes because it feels very strong with no problems that I can tell. That doesn't mean there aren't any lol

I read these bikes need scheduled valve adjustments so because who knows when it was last done I might have a few questions... like what's a valve?

@derpydog haha yes, the 919 is more quickly becoming a "thing" for me as well. I oscillate so much between "should I sell it and just get the Tiger" and "hell what am i thinking this bike is perfect". So I'll probably keep her, maybe put some work into making her more long-distance suitable.

@TheScientist valve adjustment is on my horizon as I'm about 10 miles shy of 15k but some from what I've read on this forum, it may not be the worst thing in the world to delay until the 32k interval. I'm on the fence myself but airing on the side of delaying it, at least until a few thousand past 16k (or I am willing to be 919-less for a week; whichever comes first)

I think you are more than safe waiting to check the valves at 32K. I have never heard of anyone needing adjustments at 16K.

I did the valves on my first 919 at... fuck, 36k I think? I'd bought it at 28k I think and wasn't sure if the 16k had been done. It definitely had a couple of tight valves so I went ahead and adjusted everything to bring it into the middle of the clearance range, but even then they were literally just one or two thousandths out of spec. Since my '07 is sitting at 38k right now and, again, I don't know the service history, I'll probably check it before I sell it just to stave off any "b-b-but the mileage!" lowballers. I'm not worried about my '02 with only 23k at all.

I have had the luck and privilege of becoming friends with some very good mechanics, who for whatever reason saw something in me worth teaching and encouraged me to pursue it as a vocation, but I am nowhere near calling myself a mechanic :P but I'm a junior tech at a dealership and that makes me happy. And yeah, I'm a chick. Chirp chirp.

The bike has been great. I just finished a two week 3500+ mile roadtrip on it through 8 states, actually. I'll make a post about it later. I bought it at 19k and now it's sitting at 28k and change so yeah... 9000 miles in almost exactly half a year... I'd say I like it.

I was pretty deliberate in my choice of the 919, as I wanted something that was a good compromise for street riding with some sportiness about it under $2,500. But I do have some similar long term goals, I'd like a BMW R1200GS or KTM though once it's time for an ADV bike. I'd also like a bike that only goes on the track too. I don't really see a point in getting rid of the 919 for any of them though. Did you watch the recent 44teeth video? The Tiger seems pretty tame (pun not intended) compared to the Beemer and KTM.

Looks like you're in Queens - bummer, I just moved down to NC from Astoria a few month back!

I'll definitely check that video out. I got a chance to ride a Tiger 800 at a Triumph dealer demo day, I really liked it. Haven't ridden the Bmw or KTM though. I really like the 2015+ Versys 650 as well. Much cheaper and easier to maintain myself also. So I'd probably get that and get the big bore adv bikes years from now when i can afford. As a matter of fact, thereis a leftover 2015 versys LT in white at a dealer near me for 6k. Sorely tempts me to sell the 919 or DR but i wont lol

2002 Honda 919
1999 DR650
1998 GS500 - sold
2014 Ninja 300 - sold
