Default Greetings from so cal

I have always liked naked sport bikes, My first one was a NEW 1969 Honda 750 [ RED ]. Yes i am that old . I have owned many types of motorcycles over the years.
But i always come back to UJMs. I sold my 2007 Suzuki SV 650 because even at my age it just was not enough .
I was looking on craigs list and figured i would be open to any brand if it was nice looking.
Saw a Red 2007 919 with 2,490 miles on it listed for 4,500. I called the owner and he said it was like new. I drove over and took a look. Except for the finder eliminator it was bone stock and except for being dusty it did look new. I am a auto mechanic by trade [ retired ] but i never look for a fixer upper. I like nice. He took my 4,200 and i rode it home. What a wonderful naked sport bike.Spent three days cleaning & polishing. Lubed the chain and changed the oil. I have put maybe 200 miles on it in the last week and it truly is like a new bike. Some body put new tires on it four years ago.This bike has not seen much sun in its 11 years. The rubber looks new also.

Sounds like you scored big, the 919 is a great bike.

Check out wristtwisters.com for tons of info on the 919.
