F.N.G.

I've looked at a lot of the motorcycle forums out there and like this very much. Never have posted on any site before now. It looks like any question I have has already been covered.
I have an 06 919 purchased, box stock, April 08 with 690 miles now have 4200 and still no mods. I have liked the 919s since I first saw one. I've always ridden cruisers and have an 03 VT1100 also. The first time I rode a sport I had to have one. I was going to buy a friends gsx600 katana but when I had my money together and called him he said he sold it 2 weeks before (lucky me).

Thanks for the warm reception everyone.
Zookmore, I thought I would start with the exhaust but kind of like the sewing machine sound now. Makes it kind of a sleeper. My sons both have 07 gsxr600s and thought I wouldn't be able to keep up but it is the other way around. Now they're saying WOW! that thing is fast.

exhaust is a great place to start. Do a little research and listen to youtube.com exhausts to see what you like. and then start hunting for a good deal. Also look up the baffelectomy, because most people use it as a rest point while waiting on their ideal exhaust to show up.
