Question What is a "KMW"?

OK Joe, what's a "KMW", and why is your roundel green? Have a story to share, hmmmm? "Kawasaki Green", perhaps?

There are many definitions for "roundel". One of them is for the BMW "badge", "logo", or whatever else it can be called. It's the round metal badge that appears on our bikes, the back of your helmet (unless you have removed it), this web site, and which you modified to read "KMW" and changed the color to green.

I was just curious what your new avatar's "KMW" stood for, and if there were any little tidbits that you wanted to share...

This is a roundel:

Re: What is a "KMW"?

It's gonna be a long winter if you don't make your choice soon!!! Plus, you have to put all the things you took off back on the new one. 4 piston caliper front brakes It must stop on a dime. And each piston has a seperate pad?

It's waiting for you

Maybe he is thinking KLR? To see the remote parts of Ohio.


I still have a piece of this bike on me. Watching its tailpipe disappear as my LT couldn't keep up, heading into WV.
