    Not sure if anyone cares, but here are some pics of what I got.

    Bought at a dealer in PA, this was one of their website photos:



    Shrink wrapped for the ride home. Had to re-apply a few times, but it mostly did the trick:




    Before being moved for storage. Back rest, mirrors, seats, and battery were removed and taken home. Currently being stored under a cover, with a tarp over it, outside - best I could do for now:

    That's a beautiful bike. I had the exact same one with the same color. My wife and I loved it. Unfortunately I was involved in an accident two summers ago and it was written off or we'd still have it. For accessories I had a windshield, passenger floorboards, engine guards, backrest with luggage rack, saddlebags, and nice new ISO grips. I'm sure there are some that I'm forgetting. Although there are not many posts in the M90 forum post away and someone will answer. I have a M109 now, but still miss the M90. It was no slouch, that's for sure.

    Thing's are very well my friend, I hope you are doing good too! Life has sure been interesting in the last few years, had a kid, bought a house, have another kid on the way --- but I am still at least able to keep a couple of nice bikes in the garage!

    Thanks to all who have contributed! My last bike was a 2001 Suzuki Katana 600 that I sold around 10 years ago. I didn't even know the Boulevard M-series existed at that time. Don't think I had/have ever seen one in person before recently, and in a shop. Maybe I just wasn't paying attention.

    To anyone who migrated to the M-series from a sport-type bike, how long did it take you do get used to the forward controls versus the straight down controls? In the short time I rode the bike a few hundred feet the other day, I found my legs looking straight down for the pegs instead of forward. I rode my brother's Victory 8-Ball some years ago and had the same issue. Just feels weird going forward but I know I have to adjust.

    Dagwood, what you’re experiencing with the placement of the Foot pegs is normal coming from having been a sport bike rider. I remember feeling and thinking the same way you are, when I bought my first M109R while still owning and riding my 07’ Kawasaki ZX-14R. Until that time, I had only ridden sport bikes all of my life. That tendency/habit will go away, and it will happen much sooner if you ride your M90 frequently.

    If my understanding is correct, the OP (Dagwood) does not have an M109R. He has an M90, as depicted in the pics he posted.

    Before I bought the Nine in 06, my wife had a M50. I had ridden it several times. Yeah, it takes some getting used to. Today, I have both the Nine and a 08 B-King. And I can get off one and ride the other with no problems at all. Also the Nine hasa cable clutch compared to the hydraulic clutch on the King. Also presents no problems for me, even though they both feel totally different.

    Good to know, and thanks for the info. Planning to ride it frequently once I'm able to start riding it.

    Thanks. I looked at 2006 Silver M109R but didn't care for the modifications done to it, and the seller had horrible communication.

    Glad to hear the same from another person. I'm sure I'll get used to it before too long.
