650's
« on: May 02, 2017, 05:32:27 PM »

It took just over a week to get the bike home from the dealer.  Lot's of logistical stuff that I didn't expect but she's finally home.








So here we are, just me and the Kawasaki twins.





Initial ride was strange.  I babied the motor at first, I mean real gentle and it felt like a tractor, wasn't pleased.  I started giving it more gas and then the motor reminded me more and more of my Ninja.  The tires are new and it had just rained so I wasn't pushing in through any corners.  The stock windscreen at the lowest setting is junk for me, noisy.  I'm not fond of the turn signals, aesthetically I like the integrated look of the Ninja better.  Had zero problem with seat height so far but I can see some circumstances where it might be problematic.


On the plus side very comfortable, love the integrated luggage and the windscreen at the highest setting was a-okay.  Can't wait to get the tires properly scrubbed in to get a better feel for the handling.

No, not for long. The Ninja is up for sale at the moment.
