A lot of people use to make fun of the 919 green. I like it!

Another clean single can setup! Great job on the rotors too! booger...kidding. Quite a unique color coming from Honda. The 'matte' eggshell clear was interesting the first time I saw it...on the uranium and the asphalt.

Thanks everyone. If it wasnt for a 919 that was green on ebay with a 900rr exhaust on it (too far away too buy) I probably would not have bought this stock black one. I always planned on making it green when I got it.


omaha 919 - The brakes do act alot more precise and firm. Overall dont really know if they actually stop me all that much faster than the old stuff. Just really like the way it looks.

barton - That pc3's auction I was wanting ended while i was at work. I always wait til the last minute to bid so i planned on doin it before i left for work that morning . Slipped my mind and i lost out. He had 3 total pc's and they all sold for $100 each. I still plan on getting one. My exhaust right now has the tip covered in black soot so i dont think i am runnin lean so im not in a real hurry.

beefsalad - The bag I havent used yet. http://www.motorcycle-superstore.com...-Tail-Bag.aspx
Its expands too about 19x16x14 inches.

Jalm - That bag might be exactly what I have been looking for. If you get a chance could you measure the inside dimensions with it unexpanded? And the rack it is sitting on, do you have any pics without the bag. Is it something like this one? Thanks in advance. Great looking bike! Enjoy.

Bike looks great jalm! Nice rack! LOL!
I've got that same rack.
Is that the F-18 windshield? How do you like it?

really want a green spring, havent really found a color to match it, without spending too much from color rite. Still looking though

The wind shield is a f-16 , it's ok, blocks some of the wind on the body, none on the head and neck really. i wanted to get as big of one as i could with out it lookin dorky.




The bulk of the square middle bag part is 11 inches wide, 10 inches deep, and 19 inches tall expanded up.

My rack is about 12 wide x 9.

Great looking bike. Does anyone have a few extra hundred dollars laying around they don't need? I really want a set of the wave rotors. Just out of curiosity I'm going to try mixing up some paint and using a pinstripe brush to apply it to my spring to see how well it holds up. I'll let you know about he results.
