New Guy in Town

I've been browsing for a while, reg'd a couple nights ago and thought I'd introduce myself. I picked up a 07 919 about 3 weeks ago as a wicked deal out here in AZ. 5500 for a 0mile bike off the floor and really couldn't pass it up.

Along with ECDA, I will be making the 12 day, NJ to LA trip and wanted something with a little more UMPH than my other bike (1996 Yamaha SECAII). Been riding since i was 17, took a big break after losing a lot of close friends and starting to get into some trouble. Now, older, wiser, got back into riding about 3 months ago by picking up the SECA for 1k for the sole purpose of making it work for a cross country trip, then found the smokin deal on the 919, and had a 0 down payment deal goin on, so wham bam here I am.

Just broke the bike in to about 800 miles right now by riding around in san diego for a week and am loving the bike!

Here's the bike...



No...that chick is NOT me.


Edit: sorry bout the huuuuge pics.

Hello and welcome. Definitely sounds like you got a killer deal on the 9'er.

Welcome!

Let me move my page all over the place here for a second so I can type. Oh, is that picture freakin' overly huge? Oh, that must be it!

$5500?? Dude, I'm jealous! I just paid $8300 for my 07 in November and thought I was getting a great deal. Apparently I got ripped off.

You'll love the bike almost as much as you'll love the forum!

Welcome "home"!

Don't worry about it-you won't care years from now when you've logged 70k on your 9er. I way overpaid for my F-150 almost 10 years ago and guarantee I don't remem...ber...man, did I way overpay for my truck and that GD salesman saw me coming too because my eyes jumped out their sockets when I saw her...I swear if I ever see that SOB again...wait, where was I?

Oh, yeah- Welcome to the site, J!

Welcome friend. Now, you that started your intro off with a pic of a chick on your bike, you must keep a camera available and take one of every gal that sits on that shiny new 9er.
Those are the rules, I didn't make em up, just letting you know
How about at least one in every state you visit?

Hm, I may be able to make that happen.
That picture was in San Diego, CA. I've got a few of a different girl on the bike here in AZ, but, they're not exactly *ahem* for the public's eye? I'll find some of the "tame" ones and get those posted up

Hey JiinKz, I'm doing the Tortilla Flat run on Sunday with a buddy and I'll be in study hell on Saturday, but next time you're coming up, give me a heads up and we get some good riding in.
