Local legend doing things not possible for most on big Kato
I'd love a Kim for off the pavement, but for an adv touring bike I liked my 2014 multistrada. Regret selling it. Rode my father in laws 2016 Honda interceptor 800 today. Vtec. Smooth as could be but very weak imo.
Was looking at one of those indians last year!
The 100 horse one!
And I had to go to bed early with no supper!
Rejection can tire a guy out. Push through.
800 pound bike
It looks a lot like the Vulcan https://www.kawasaki.com/Products/2018-Vulcan-S-ABS-SE
At least Mikey I wouldn't look like a giant riding a mini bike!
How many horses on the Kaw?
That Indian is sweet! I really like the HD Breakout and the KTM 1290 Super Adventure R.
Yeah around 50 hp. I had the same motor in my Ninja 650. They run good !!
I'm done for the day. I may head out to the local dealers and kick some tires. I think I also feel a Baconator coming on.
How much is the Indian?
About $12,700 for the ABS and $12,300 for non ABS
Well I just got done at the KTM / Suzuki dealer. Check out the Display on the 1290 Adventure. They also had a nice SuperDuke. The Vstrom is also a nice bike, the the KTM ruins it in comparison.
Just went to the Honda / Kawasaki dealer. Man I love the Africa Twin and the new Goldwing. I would look good eating my Baconator on a Goldwing. The retro Kawi RS 900 is bad ass but feels very small when sitting on it.
Just went to the Yamaha dealer. One of my first “Big” bikes was a 1986 Yamaha FJ 1200. My local Yamaha has one for sale. Talk about having a flood of memories come back to me. I sold the that bike because I got pissed off everytime I had to change the oil. The 4 exhaust pipes needed to be removed to get to the oil plug. They only wanted $2500 for this old FJ. I’m tempted.
Then they had these. Some of these bikes look like something out of a Transformers movie.
Did they have a scooter that we ca Go Fund Me for Jimmy?
I just went to the Harley dealer. I like the new Fat Bob but after sitting on it I’m not so excited anymore. That dang primary sticks out so far and the air filter rubs my leg. That’s a deal breaker for me. But I do like the 114ci engine. Say what you will about Harley’s. They make a pretty bike.
I'm absolutely sure I could hurt myself with that Katie-Em......
