Default I'm going to miss you all

I traded in my beautiful little 2006 599 today for one of these. It was used, with only 2000 miles on it and with add-ons: Arrow titanium pipe, heated grips, hand guards, center stand, touring windscreen, Givi sidebags and mount for tailbag... what could I do?

I do plan in "upgrading" in the near future but I don't think I'd leave the forum just because of that...I always have waaaaaay too much fun here

Those trumpets are selling like hot cakes over here. Remember to leave a note under the seat saying HONDA599.COM.

You don't stop talking to a kick ass aunt cause she divorced your uncle... that is to say, it's all good. Besides, all the muppet avatars are fun. And the Jill is always welcome. But you gotta show us some pics of the new baby!

Okay, well I much prefer this site to the tiger800 site, that is mostly Brits talking all serious. What is up with the muppets, really? The tiger is a breeze! I put a little durga statue behind the windshield, the Hindu goddess that also rides a tiger..

I have a gnome riding a frog on the dashboard of my car. Anytime some other driver pisses me off, I look at the waving gnome and just let it go.

Anyway, congrats on your new ride, hope to see you around. I'd snatch up Janice if I were you, Miss Piggy is overrated.

Here I am about seven years later with a "new" 2006 599! The Tiger was beautiful on the highway, but not great in dirt. Too top heavy (and I couldn't lift it when I dropped it in deep sand). So I went from there to a 2006 Kawasaki 250 dirt bike that was So Much Fun. Explored all the remote corners of New Mexico on that thing. I could lift it by the handlebars when I dropped it. Visited Indian ruins that you can't get to even with a 4WD vehicle. It wasn't bad on the highway either.. did 70 mph fine (as long as the hills weren't too steep).

My Kawasaki got stolen off my driveway a few weeks ago. I had comprehensive insurance, so Progressive paid me the value of the bike, plus the current value of the after market, extra large gas tank, the custom seat, my side bags. I am so impressed with Progressive! I got a check two weeks later.

Enough to buy another 599. I got it in Denver and rode it back to Albuquerque. It has a ridiculously loud and powerful TwoBrothers exhaust pipe. Got a sound suppressor for that and a windscreen and now I am good to go.

Where is everybody? I don't see all the regulars who used to be here.

That's a good looking cage 'round that engine, too, Jill!
