I closed the deal Wednesday and am now the proud owner of a 2008 109R2. I have been riding as often as the work schedule will allow. I just wanted to say hello, I have been "lurking" since last year and thought that it would be a lot longer before I would own a 109. The wife decided that she was ready to move up from the 250 and take over my M50, so as fate would have it SSKOTA was selling his and offered a great deal and was close. Now Wannarider just doesn't seem right but what are you gonna do? I am looking forward to learning a lot from everyone.
