Smile Impossible but true

Just picked up this 04 919 in Atlanta where a dude never drove it. I have been looking for a like new matte uranium since I wrecked mine in 06. Flawless!

Dreams some time do come true! 3,100 miles.

Very nice congrats! It was hard to watch. I thought they were just inching it back until the ramp flipped down.

They looked like they were prolly more nervous than you but the weren't in a hurry, they were careful, and got the job done safely.
How is the riding so far?

So true. Make a trip to Home Depot for a gun and PVC pipe/plastic drop cloth to make a mini booth and I'd be in there.
