A hornet on my hornet

I haven't been able to ride all weekend because of rain but I was able to pollish her up and snap a few photos durring a low point in the storm.

This one hornet decided to pick a fight with my hornet. My hornet won!

Hell yeah I am. I'll be sure to take lots of video with and without the removeable baffle.

I'd appreciate that. The 'tunes are the most popular aftermarket exhaust on the Honda ST's. By far. It's that or the Two Bros and everyone that buys the Two Bros. complain about the quality after a year of use. I'd love to hear how the Staintunes sound on the 919 so your video will be great. They sure sound sweet on the ST13.

BTW - I put the Satos on the bike Friday. Have some miles on them now. Love 'em -- the sound and added oomph. I'm sure the Staintunes will do the same for you.

I just opened the bike up for the first time today. I'm blown away by how fast this bike is. I did a thrid gear roll on merging onto the freeway from 5k up to 9K and it felt like it was going to snap my neck.

People often tell me "The 919 has ONLY 100hp, why would you get such a weak bike?" These people have obviously never ridden the thing. I love this bike so much!

Ken, take those stickers off your tank and swing arm before the sticker police pull you over. I love your bike by the way. Now I know what mine will look like with bar end mirrors and a factory windshiled.

LoL - Well we're feeding each other's farkle habit cause I'm looking at your back end (no comments from the peanut gallery!) and looking forward to taking off the snow shovel and adding your plate bracket and CA integrated tail light! OK OK, I'm off to the garage to wax the chain and remove the stickers!!!

you gotta love the red, but SSS what's up with the wide chicken strips, are there no corners where you live?

I knew someone would say that. First of all I took that picture before I even did the first oil change. So I'm not pushing the bike much yet. Even when I do they may not be all gone. I can't brag about my strips but I can brag about never dropping or crashing a street bike in my 5 years of riding on the street. 35,000 miles and counting. Knock on wood!

+1 - Not all of us are die hard canyon carvers. Mind you, not that I don't enjoy it when it happens, but most of my bikes miles are from commuting. Now, if this Jennings has the effect everyone says it will, I may be stepping over to the dark side.... MUAHAHAHAHAHAHA <-- diabolical laughter

All stickers are gone. Thanks for the reminder. Looks much cleaner.

That darn emission sticker is a real biotch. Clear thin film over the real sticker that was a bear to get off, even with hair dryer and WD-40.
