New 919! Old F'er.

Just wanted to say 'Hello!' to all you guys. I've had my green '04 919 for about a month now. I picked it up for a song with 2 miles on it. I guess nobody likes Matt Uranium. It spent 3 1/2 weeks in the shop during that month. I had a problem with the kickstand giving out. Honda wouldn't warranty it (bastards) so my insurence covered it, but they moved very slowly.

Also, I'd avoid Hond of Winston-Salem at all costs. I had to spend 2 hours fixing my bike the day it got back from the shop. They'd put the tail cover on wrong and got the seat latch jammed. When I called them they were like, "eh. Just push on the seat a little."

I also have an older CB900F. It's a slow clunky box on bad wheels compared to my 919.

Feel free to mail me. [email protected]

Welcome aboard... It's too bad about the treatment you bike got from that dealer. It might not be a bad idea to give the 919 a good once over. Check items that the dealer usually screws up>> battery terminals bolts, hex bolts that hold the handle bar in place, chain tension, fluid level in the master cyl., and coolant aux. tank.

Other then the jammed and improperly installed seat latch I found that they'd bled off almost 10 lbs of air. I did give it a once-over at my shop. After I refilled the tires I checked them every day for a week and no more low pressure. I swear sometimes these guys are just after my money. They don't care about the bikes anymore.

Greetings from NC. I also ride a 919. I've had mine about a month now I guess. Enjoy the site. Some good info here if you take time to dig a little.

I'm seeing more and more 919 riders around the southeast. Maybe it's time we tried to hook up somewhere for a little meet and greet.

townsend, tn is a pretty central location and not far from the dragon.

Any interest?

I wouldn't mind maybe getting away for a weekend. What do you have in mind?

I'm in... about 2 hours from douglasville. I've got a buddy in Newnan, we meet at Cheaha state park and ride the backroads of Talladega county AL a lot.

You are one lucky dude to be living that close to Barber Motor Speedway.
Makes it easy become a track day junkie!

Yep, 20 minutes from my house. I'm also about 40 minutes from the Talladega GP raceway. Going to my first track day there in July, if I don't scare myself too bad I'll do Barber's in the fall.

I'm thinking hook up and ride to townsend on a friday. take some rides around the area on saturday, maybe even the dragon. then head for home on sunday.

staying at headricks is pretty cheap. especially if we do some room sharing.

another option might be to meet somewhere along I-20 and take some back roads over to 29 Dreams on a Saturday. There's always something going on over there and if you haven't been you're missing out on a cool place.

I'm finishing an assignment in a week so I'll be unemployed pretty soon. just in time to get in some good riding.
