Speaking of Pete's in Baltimore, that's where I got my 919 about a year ago. Traded in my Suzuki M50 for it on my birthday, Dec. 2 2009. They were selling several 'new' 2007s for $6,000 plus taxes and stuff. I was so excited I rode it home in a mild snowstorm after they built it 'brand new' from a crate!
I've just put over 10,000 on it, nary a hitch. The best thing I've done so far is get Michelin Pilot Road 2s. Winter's a bitch but not that bad in Maryland. I ride every weekend if it's above 45. My wife just shakes her head "yer a maniac!"
This bike never had much of a market here - nakeds in general weren't hot sellers here but I think they're starting to pick up in popularity, from reading the motorcycle rags.
