Lil Red's Birthday

Well, July 12th marked Lil Red's 1st Birthday. It's been a really great year together. No breakdowns, noises, gas smells, squeling brakes, ect. Just fire it up, go, and grin.
Lil Red let me ride on top every time except one, when she slung me off, and I was closer to the ground then her. My total for 365 days was 14,615 miles. My longest ride was 172 miles. Also that was just daily riding, no cross countries, or marathon days. I figure I've bought 300 gals ($1,000) of gas. I'm on my 2nd set of tires, and my book says 6 oil and filter changes. No complaints at all.
Would I buy another 919? Yes.
Would I buy one with 1,000cc and alloy frame? YES,YES!
I guess now would be a good time to do a valve check, spark plugs, brake fluid change, and thorough under carriage clean up job.

I put them there to glance at from time to time. (60-70 mph). I put them there when the bike was new. I just had my Insurance lowered after having too many tickets.
Did you notice my wet bug rag?

Shoot me a PM when it gets about a week out. We'll hook up for a meal or something!

And Happy Birthday to Lil' Red!!
