I went with a 919 Hornet (CB900)...interesting thing... I had the same model 25 years ago. :eek:
I think there may be a few differences between your old shaft drive CB900 (guessing you had a custom) and the new one. I had an 83 CB1000 Custom. Bug ole tank but ran pretty good for its age. I LOVE the new 919.

Nope. Had a 900F (chain drive, big brother of the 750F). After reading about "Fast" Freddie Spencer and his laps at Willow Springs, I went and bought a new black one. They clocked the top speed at 141 back then, but I never got it above about 130. This 919 is a lot different animal! First off, it's 100 lbs. lighter, Fuelie, 6sp., etc.

I like to try on stuff locally, and then hit www.newenough.com to see if they have it any cheaper. I have seen some killer deals on there..

And Congrats on the 919! Can't go wrong with that 'ol RR mill!!
Thanks! Us old school guys like that more upright position. I cut my teeth on bikes from the late '70's/early '80's, and that was all we had. :eek:

How so? Same motor, different' front forks.
oh and no, the R6S has the same motor as the 2004. The 2005 is the fastest of that style R6 made
