One year later...

On this date a year ago, 10,813 miles ago by the odometer, I rented a van and drove to TN, bought my 9er, and have been smiling ever since.

WooHoo!!!!!! Miles of smiles.

Crazy, my one year is in a few days. Called every stealership in the area until I found my baby. Re-established my love affair with motorcycling. Much to my wife's dismay.

And what the hell do you do that you have nearly 2000 posts in a year? There is no way I could average 5 a day.

Good deal Brev, but, you'd better gas it cause it's getting harder and harder for me to make you out in the mirrows.

Cool, we'll share and anniversary from now on. As of today, I'm the proud owner of a 2003 919. So far, I've put about 1/8 mile on the bike. After 4 hours driving from North Dallas to Abilene and then another 4 hours driving back to Dallas, the most I could do was ride it up and down the street directly into my garage.

I know exactly how you felt the day you got the 9 home. It took me all day long, driving and preping the bike, it had not been out of the crate very long when I walked in the Shop. I nearly ran off the road a dozen times looking back at it riding in the back of my truck. Was dark, and I just had to take off and feel that little beauty rolling in and out of some curves, with or without slick tires. I've never looked back, or 2nd guessed buying my " Lil Red "
We passed 17,050 miles this morning, and yes, I got rained on.

Way to go man, glad to hear the 9'er still makes your pulse race. That's all that matters!
