919 or CB900F?

I'm applying for the Iron Butt Association SaddleSore 1000.

Which name for the 9er do my WT brothers and sisters prefer? There's currently one "919" on IBAs website, and a handful of "CB900F"s.

My goal is simple. It is a complete understanding of the universe, why it is as it is and why it exists at all.

919 for everyone & everything.
CB900F for the insurance Co.

It says Cb900F on my Canadian model 919 but whenever I talk about it I refer to it as my nine one nine. There are several different CB900's and it can get confusing whereas there is only one 919.
Good luck on your ironbutt, how are you moding your bike for touring?

Hey Unsub...I already did the SaddleSore 1000 this past Saturday, I just have to submit my evidence. You can see the info about my bike and trip on this thread. That thread just shows my trip out, not the actual SaddleSore, but there are pics of my setup. Here's a list of the mods and equipment that played a major role in my trip:

Endurance Cargo tank bag
Chase Harper saddle bags
Ventura 51 liter tail bag
17t countershaft sprocket
AirHawk cushion
CrampBuster throttle control <-- probably the best performance to dollar ratio

My goal is simple. It is a complete understanding of the universe, why it is as it is and why it exists at all.

Nine one Nine

It's hard to be humble at 9 G's.

There is only one 919 but you could add some color and add the Hornet family.
