just wrapping up a coupla mods, then pics. patience folks
as for comparo vs 919. i had my 919 back in 02, loved it so much, i bought it back 3 times!! had 2 sets of tins to swap out colors and mood, LOVE me some 919. wife rides the 599 based upon our dating experiences. that being said, it is nice to get back on a UJM vs the italian twin. couldnt see the CB1000 as a viable option, especially given the $. this has the matte finish that the OG 919 had, has the cool "alien" headlight that "the kids are wearing" these days. has the same "happy handle" as the 919. its everything the 919 is $$, grin, looks etc. gonna make some more changes as time goes and will love it like i did the 919. ride friendly!
