    Oh, it's not a problem. You get 5 days notice and it's only a day of rain. After that you have obstacles in the road to keep things lively...lol.

    Well, since we're in a he said/she said debate - we have winter 6 months out of the year, but florida has flat, straight, strip mall strewn roads 12 months out of the year. Given those options, I'll happily pay my dues and shovel my snow.

    But c'mon! Give us more cow bell!

    Naaa... we just let the tourist think that.... the locals know the fun roads. Where I live we have a ton of back roads that are great to ride.

    Lake County Florida. It's one of the few hilly, rural places in the state.

    Looks like a National Cycle F-16. I have it and love it.

    Yes. It's a good one. I had to dremel a little off the bottom to get it to mount the way I wanted too. With their hardware no need, of course.

    No wind on my chest. Full wind but no turbulence shoulders and above.

    Question: anyone have a recommendation for 16mm spark plug socket that fits in the head? I don't have a feeler that reaches to measure the diameter, but I know it's tight. (actually, now that I write this... is there one in the stock tool kit?)

    Maybe a dumb question, but always good to revive the 919 threads...

    Yessir! The stock is in the tool kit. Like many bikes, the best tool for the job. My 919 came sans tool kit. Went to the Honda dealer and was pleased to pay $60 for the whole thing. For that bike, the stock kit can get a lot done on the side of the road and hides well under the seat. Btw, the spark plug socket was available solo, but I don't recall price. This was two years ago.

    Fun bike.

    I owned a 599 (called CB600 Hornet here) earlier in the year and it was a LOT of fun - plenty of power for 599cc, low weight, excellent brakes and handled fine, but it was too cramped (seat/peg) for me. IMO it was also a very well built, high quality motorcycle. For those that have ridden both the 599 and 919 or, ideally, owned both, is the 919 any roomier?

    I ride 919 for many years, and have tried 599 couple of times, so I can tell, that 919 is bigger maybe 10%.
