Hello all,

Just picked up a very clean bone stock 2004 Honda 919 with 20,000 miles at a great price.
I've wanted one of these bikes since I first sat on one back in 2004.
Already made my first mod by changing out those goofy stock mirrors.

I live in the mountains of WV so I've got lots of twisties to carve through.
I also ride a 2011 Street Glide and a 1985 Honda Nighthawk 700S.
It's going to take me a while to get used to the 110 hp and the awesome handling.
I'm new to these bikes so I'll be asking some pretty stupid questions until I get up to speed.
Anyway here's a pic of the bike.
See you all out on the road.

Welcome! Beautiful 919 & Nighthawk. Any additional mods planned moving forward?
Thanks,

Been restoring the Nighthawk for a couple years now. Just won best classic bike in a local bike show.


Looking at LED turn signals and headlight for the 919. Maybe a Sargent seat upgrade as well.

Honda had a lot of money to throw around back then and this was one of their "tariff buster" bikes. Good shot.
$3300 would buy a lot of bike back then.
