NEBRASKA AND BACK

hey ya'll,
sorry i havent posted the last few days, been taking care of family business in nebraska. as you know, im from northern arkansas, and she is in grand island nebraska. long story short, i bolted outta here saturday morning and returned last night. i gotta say, the 919 is frigging rock solid. the ride home was in the rain (yeah, it was a bitch too). but this machine is just awesome, but i WILL be upgrading the seat this winter, plus putting a windshield on it to cut the wind, both which i will be looking for input on them. to you dads here, and moms too, keep your children close, a 500 mile trip sucks (one-way) to help them out. thanks for letting be part of this cool community.


Sincerely,
Bill

glad you made it safely. I am planning a trip from lower Ga to upper Indiana for later this month. Going to be 750 miles one way. Plus miles to go from house to house visiting people.

Looks like that tire has a ton of life left in it. Your bike is screaming to be cleaned.

The 9er handles the highway pretty well doesn't it? Even the rain's not too bad once you get settled in and used to it. Your right, the stock seat has to go.

Glad you had a safe trip!! I just ordered the same license tag on Oct 1st. I've seen the same message on a Pennsylvania tag, too... Funny.

Sounds like a good warm-up ride for something much longer and adventurous?!

I like the shower cap over the tank bag.

It's better to have loved and lost than live with the psycho for life!

Bill, next time you're heading to G.I. give me a shout. It's 2 hrs from my door & I-80 all the way.
Glad to hear you returned safely.







BTW, it's STILL raining

Laters, Bill

Glad to hear your trip went well. The seat is a must. Just got done with a 2100 mile trip in August. The wife, 2 side bags, tail bag, tank bag, and myself. The 9er was fully loaded and about 10 lbs shy of max load.

Spencers seat mod: awesome for the money, my arse (and the wife's) had no complaints.

Windscreen: I used the Givi A755, should be the right one. Was perfect for me I'm 6'3". Kept the wind off my chest, and let it flow around the helmet.

I lived my first 20 years in GI. Be glad my parents didn't see you there. Red 919 with a Ventura rack, they'd have thought you stole mine!
Let me know if there is anything you need help with in the future regarding anything with Grand Island. I have lots of family & friends there.

And I bet the roads here make you thankful you have roads with curves in them down home!
