Her 919 Again

Wife has blown out her right knee twice before and did it again two weeks ago so she gets cut on tomorrow. She has not ridden her 919 in over a year so her uncle or I ride it every now and then just so it remembers what it is supposed to do.
I put 200 miles on it Saturday just turdballin out on the hiway. put a crampbuster on it which made the hand more happy and dammit I think I may have gotten used to the seat too. Got above 40mpg which was a surpise and still has the best shifting tranny up or down of all the bikes in the gayrage including the beemer. Doing some hot dogging just cause I could and power is not to bad. Kinda buzzy compared to the other bikes but livable.
She has some honeydoos for me if I keep riding it like a PC3, strip and polish the wheel lips, braided brake lines and something else but cannot remember what it was.
I guess I will do it for her and not because I like riding the bike. After all it is only a Honda, under a 1000 cc and considered a girls bike by the rest of the ricer world.

The 919 is mostly dismissed or overlooked by many due to being perceived as boring and also due to its retro/dated looks. (Just a few simple mods such as tail tidy and mirror makes a huge difference.)

Meh - I'm happy with my 919. It looks like a bike should - you can see the engine and the bodywork does not look like a piece of origami. A set of slip-ons or a bafflectomy gives it some personality. The handling is just fine for spirited road use - IMO if you are going fast enough to upset it then you should be off the public roads and on a track.

When parked up next to newer and often exotic bikes at my favourite haunt I am often surprised at the number of positive comments I get about my bike.

Yep, when parked in hotspots such as the waterfront, its interesting to see people look at the bike. I have had quite a few people come over and talk to me about the bike as well.

I saw Bobby cruising the 919 mod thread earlier. Don't let him fool you. He likes that bike but can't admit it.

Battery died on it so put a new one in and went to play. Close to 200 Saturday which is the most I have ever ridden it so even tho it is not a Kawasaki it did grow on me. All it has is the Yosh slip ons, bar risers, center stand and the little factory Honda wind buster. I have the new brake lines, front line separator and block off plates for it. Depending on what goes on this weekend I may get to the wheels for strip and polish. The PC3 will be next year and I don't know what other little cheapies I might do to it.
I like my ZRX's better but it sure is nice to hop on something a 100 lbs lighter.

Best description would be it is the HD883 of the ricer world.


Yep that ought to get it started ---

I vote we all get together and ban him.

883 of the ricer world! Surely that would be a GN250 or similar. Nah the 883 is overweight and gutless - the GN is relatively light and could probably take down a 883.

Our only hope if his wife reads this and banns him from her 'special place' until he posts up a public apology.

Someone call Bobby's wife and tell her he's talking smack about her bike again. She'll handle it.

Go ahead and alert her. I am a man and not afraid of wimmins much less be afraid of a wife. I am the ruler of my land, the man who will be king, the lump at the head of the stick and last but not least the King of his Kastle (gayrage).
I can be that way without fear of reprisal from the wimmins because I ride Kawasaki's and Beemers not wimpy ass Honda's. Ride the lesse of the ricers and the wimmins know that the men folk will fear them.

Now today I did ride the 919 to work but that is only to make sure the bike still starts and runs ok and NOT BECAUSE I MIGHT LIKE THE BIKE.

The fun part of the bike is the nice strait away right before I get to the workplace. Start downshifting and play in the upper rpm and dammit if I don't do a flyby to a RoadKing. Jerry works in my bldg and when he parked next to the 919 he just called me a Gak Zucker and walked inside. I will probably have to go ask for his forgiveness later on today.

The 919 feels like a next to my Kawasaki's

I have to much fun messing with youns here on this board and her about Honda's you all and her know I like the 919. I figure it is all in good fun so I go for it.
Her favorite saying when I get off her bike and in the house is "bitch been riding my bike again"

I am thinking she needs to go thru a re-training process again on how to treat your man right. maybe I ought to tell her that I still love her and you cannot teach an old bitch (her) new tricks.

2nd thought is maybe I will keep my mouth shut and let old dogs lie......

My little female twinkie of a wife asked if I was gonna ride the 919 to work again and I said probably. That was before I got in the shower and before she turned on the weather channel. rain forcasted later today and she don't want the "niner" to get wet.

Whimpy ass wimmins just get on my nerves. Oh I forgot to say that Tuesday she had the micro surgury on her knee again for the 2nd time this year but hobbled into the bathroom to let me know maybe the Kawasaki's or the beemer need to be the wet ones.
It started raining before I left for work so I took the cage.

I might be a little whimpy too................
