Well said jonnster 71 👍
I really want to learn about suspension set up . I haven't a clue. Im a hop on and ride, take to mechanic kind of guy as was a late comer to bikes, rode a bike for first time at 32 , never grew up around them, only time heard of bikes is when someone was killed on one, like my brothers friend rode one into a tree at 18. So never learned any mechanical knowledge.
At first i thought id made a big mistake and had buyers remorse, but i told myself ill take her on a long ride , i even advertised and had two people interested in it within hours. I had ninja 1000 up 7 months before i sold that , shows you its popular. So i went on a 3 hour ride along all my usual jaunts and when i got back she had won me over.
I dont know what it is "spare parts bin" but it just works , its not super fast but feels like it, its not super good looking but is, great tank range, handles like i can change my mind many times in a corner 😂, sounds amazing, it just does everything.
Does kawasaki know how good this bike is ?
I ve owned a versys 1000 too before ninja 1k , although that V1k engine is really nice, for me it doesn't come close to the 650 in handling and character. Just my thoughts.
I think ive found my home in a little 650, been chasing "that " bike , thinking it came in more cc's or rider modes, who would thought it would be found in such a unremarkable little machine .
Well done kawasaki!
