Picture time!

I got rid of my stickers, decals, and reflectors. This is what I got.

I almost didn't take off the decals but now I'm glad I did. It looks much cleaner. The bike is so beautiful it doesn't need cheap stickers on it.

Looks really nice. Since when do the needles sweep the gauges on startup?

Since 03 at least. Looks like you *might* still have a wing on the tank.

Not bad. Not bad at all. I was thinking about taking the decals off, but I like em. I pull up next to the 600's they chuckle a little bit until I point to the engine then the big 919 on the rear cowl. They all of a sudden look at the ground. Don't know why though.

All your bike needs now is a matte black paint job, then you can really be Super Sneaky!

Congrats...

Mine don't do that, and I have a matte black 03.

Nice pix Steve. I like the '06 red more and more. Now you need to perform the bafflectomy on it to bring out the growl hidden within. It's an extremely cheap alternative to buying new Satos.

On my '03 the guages don't do that when you turn the key on. When did that begin?

It's a fool who looks for logic in the chambers of the human heart.

Thanks for the compliments.

I like the idea of a sleeper bike. The 600's may think they are faster till I roll on my massive torque and leave them in the dust. It works just the same.

I have some Erion pipes on my wishlist. I told myself I wasn't going to mod the hell out of this bike, or at least wait till spring, but I can't help it. I'm going for the Clear Alternatives break light first to remove the snow shovel. I'm going to get to work making a plate bracket after I make this post.

I traded bikes with my FZ1 friend and my 636 friend. They both were amazed at how light my bike felt. My bike feels much lighter and better handling than the FZ1 and is way more comfortable than the 636. I was surprised at how much the Kawi sucked below 7K RPM and how much it kicked ass over 11K. It was the most uncomfortable bike I've ever ridden. 10 minutes and my back, neck, and wrists hurt like hell.

Boy, do I know this feeling. So now I don't feel so bad - I'm not alone! In less than a month I've added some Pazzo levers, a CRG mirror, and have a set of Satos on their way here. I'd still like to get a set of Motovation sliders when their new ones are released. And maybe this Winter work on eliminating the fender. Kinda scary how addictive this stuff can be, but it sure is fun!!

Here's the man behind the machine. I got 45mpg on my first tank and 51 on my second tank with the light comming on solid at 182miles.

I love this bike more and more. It has the classic looks that I enjoy, the power and it's very economical as I'm finding out.

There's a lot less time required to wax it too. Less plastic. And the very best part about this bike is........... it matches my lawnmower.

How long does it take you to cut your grass? Do you have to wear mowing gear?

I think it came in with the '04 models.
It's part of the startup self diagnostics that runs when the key is turned.

I kinda like it myself. I have the '05 BTW..
I've taken the "safety" stickers off of the tank, but I rather like the Hornet 900 stickers on the rear cowling. The '05 gloss black has the wings in silver under the top clear coat. I like that too!
Nice bike SSS

I know some really good places. I'm in White Lake. In case you've never heard of it, it's by Alpine Valley ski resort. Near Wald Lake, Waterford, Milford.
A little North West of the D.

Give me a number or email in my PM and I'll give you a buzz this weekend.

Not many twisties in MI. At least not until you get away from the city. I have a good friend who lives in Canton, MI. Has a Honda 929 and a Harley Road King Classic.

Also has CB350 he is restoring. Angela and I swing up there a few times a year.
