New V900 Classic Owner

Just recently bought a 2009 V900 Classic with 6,000 miles and it is mint! Had it delivered from a dealer in FL because oddly enough even with shipping it was a better deal than any I could find within 400 miles of me.

So I have ridden it about 100 miles so far and I freaking love it. Previously owned a 500, and still love that bike. My girlfriend has it now, so it's still around.

Just wanted to say hello and how much I love the new ride!

Like you, I went from a 500 to a 900 Classic.
I hoped to keep the 500 for my wife, who has her license but has not ridden much due to the boys. Hopefully one day she will get another one and a 500 would be right for her.

I have a 2009 Custom,looks to be the same color,Dark Sapphire Blue with the metallic.
I like the look of the larger tire on the front of the LT .... Might have to look into changing mine

The world is a pool table,and all the people in it are either stripes or solids. You alone are the cue ball.

Yeah that skinny front tire is what led me back to the classic. Something about that tire always looks disproportionate to me. There's a member on here, can't remember who it is, but he swapped the front tire out on the custom with with a classic front tire and it looks real nice.
