I'm super pleased with the responses I'm getting, and it makes me ever so glad I finally did something with this domain. A few people offered to chip in to get a better hosting plan to get rid of this damn banner at the top and I will certainly take them up on it. In 3 days, 25 members! I think we're doing well!!!

I do have an account on BARF, but I hardly ever go there. I'm an SBR addict though. :0)

Hey guys... I'm from Stratford Ontario Canada, one of the few from Canada with a 599 from what I understand.. I have an '04 asphalt 599 with some mods, check it out on bikepics...
http://www.bikepics.com/members/kmcdonald/04hornet00/

I kinda crrrrrrrashed it 2weeks ago though, but it should be back to almost 100 percent by wednesday... I've been bustin my ass in the garage fixin er up again. Anyways, I've been a member of the UK hornets nest, but its nice to finally have a site over here for these bikes. Maybe it will be easier to track down bits and pieces for the bikes!!!

hello everyone, tack another "OC'er" on the list,... got me a yellow 04 stock as a virgin (for now).....

good luck with the forums! if i knew ANYbody else with a 599 i'd definatley tell them about it, unfortunatley.... i do not....

Alex, maybe you should talk to the forum leader over at the hornet's nest UK and see if he'd let you advertise on their forums towards the american members you know? i dont see why they should mind, and it'd probably add a good amount of members,.... but you never know...

anyways Hello all!

What's good everyone!!? D here coming at you from L.A. - have an '06, shinny and black, with Ermax belly pan Hind-Sight bar end mirrors and Powerbronze seat cowl. Looking to tear out that fender and get a new pipe soon. But anyway, I'm so glad Alex put a spot online for us 599'ers to connect. Thanx man.

Cesu's got a good idea. I know I spent a lot of time across the virtual pond digging for info on the UK's nest.

Just bought my brand new '06 Black 599 yesterday have been filled with joy ever since. I live in Charleston, SC and I'm glad to see more streetfighter riders out there. I'm so tired of all the full faired racing bikes around here. I'll post some pics probably later today, if not than tomorrow.

BTW, I'm a web developer if you need any advice or help. I'll try to help out if I can.

Default Today i am a man, or something...

Hi. Just rode my 0 miles 2006 599 home from the dealer. Im stoked and impressed too. This is my first bike, though ive ridden a couple of others but not much. So far i like the suspension over the bumps, i love the power even down low, its easy to tell its building so it doesnt surprise you. And riding through the neighborhood i was practicing counter steering around the little reflective things in the road about 35. It seems very nimble. Havent been past 5-6000 on the tach, im going to try to break it in right, but i can tell this things gonna be fun.

Oh and, im in Florence, SC. And yes its about 40 degrees outside, but i still managed to get in about 35 miles today, and i had the numb hands (from the cold) to prove it .

Love it.

I'm stoked for you! I remember the day I rode my first 599 around the block in San Francisco. It was nothing short of awesome!

A few words of advice - get good gear! Never ride without a helmet. Protect all skin you'd like to keep. And get frame sliders ASAP so when you happen to drop the bike it doesn't get damaged.

Helmet
Gloves
Stylin' MotoGP jacket (love that one)
Icon Super Duty 2 boots (love them too)

Wearing that stuff every time.

checking into sliders, and probably the givi 305 for starters. Great board here. I sat and watched every one of mordeths videos before they disappeared from youtube.

Ill stop crowding the welcome thread, see you guys around.
