Finally took some pics.

I know you guys have seen a million candy red 919's but I finally took some pics of mine so I thought I'd post them. I've had it one month and have put on a Jardine exhaust, switched the chrome monstrosity mirrors for black rectangular ones, removed the passenger peg guards to save weight and slim it a little, added the centerstand ( I know it adds a lot of weight but I had to have it), trimmed the bottom off the rear fender, added a K&N filter, did Mike's flapper mod from his 919.org page, powdercoated the side covers & grab rail black. I'm waiting on my Pazzo shorty levers.
And no, my house is not on an angle! LOL!

The black mirrors work well. How do you like those Yarrdeens ? Are they noisy ? Did they add some pep ?

How's the quality/fitting on those pipes?

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

Pipes are great. They sound good. Louder but not too annoyingly (is that a word?) loud. Butt dyno says it's a little quicker, maybe more responsive but this is my first fuel injected bike so it's more responsive than my carbed one I think. The fit is good but as I look at the rear photo I see I need to loosen the clamps and readjust the left side pipe, it's a little crooked.

I see one every day, but it's always nice to see another. By the way Red is the fastest color ...

Great looking bike! But I'm a little partial.
I think your going really like the Jaurdines I had mine for about 1 month now and have put a lot of miles on them. What's cool is they sound nice and deep and louder at idle and when reving but when you're moving they not loud at all.

From the looks of that back tire, you're finding your way around the curves, also. Good Job!
