New to the 919

Hello All! Just got myself a 2003 919 off of Ebay. Didn't expect to win it, but I'm glad I did. I've always loved the looks of this bike, since it somehow reminds me of my first bike, a '83 CB650SC Nighthawk which I've kept since '85.

I'm looking forward to being a part of this Forum!

Rob

What he isn't saying is that he's referring to himself! Seriously, though, between Mike and a few other guys you should be able to get just about all the 919 info you could ever want/need.

Welcome aboard!

Thanks guys. I'm already liking it alot. It feels very light and nimble, considering it's size and power. I also like its subtle but aggressive looks.

Pushing 40 (years old), it's pretty easy on my back, too!!

I also bought my '02 919 on ebay sight unseen two months ago. I commute with it 60 mi/day 3 times a week, it's tons more fun than my yzf 600r and more comfortable!
