Smile I went far too long without a bike. Glad that's over!

Just updating some old friends. I don't expect too much fanfare in this forum, but that's OK. I am the proud new owner of a 2010 Kawasaki Concours14 ABS. Picked it up yesterday, and I couldn't be happier. It's remarkably similar to my '06 K1200GT, with a few pros ... and even a con or two. I love the color as it reminds me of the old Orient Blue that the older style GT/RS came in. Very sweet.

Forgot my camera so this pic is from my phone.

Just because I have a garage full of BMW's (and one Triumph Speed Triple that snuck in during a moment of mid life crisis) doesn't mean I don't appreciate other rides. Congratulations on the new bike.

I probably should wait until I have a few more miles on the Kaw, and have worked on it some. Then I could properly compare this bike to my GT.

Re: I went far too long without a bike. Glad that's over!

I'm just trying to imagine a Joe without 2 wheels......nope, can't even begin to envision it!

Congrats, and keep the shiny side up and 'tween the ditches!
