It is a GREAT bike. You will love it! There are a few common problems that will probably happen to you over time, but all are pretty easy to work around and there is a huge support network to help you along the way

There is a significant aftermarket support for the bike so you can address some of the small ergonomic issues some people run into but other than that it will be rock solid reliable with routine maintenance.

<< Wow. There's more than one Haslet rider on here? Do you live off of Bonds Ranch Rd., or farther up 35 in the "real" Haslet? >>

Apparently so. I live off Bonds Ranch in Van Zandt Farms.

I have just bought a new Concours. It has been about 10 years since I last rode my Honda VFR 750. I was a little concerned about getting back on a bike, but it took me about 10 minutes in the parking lot and I was away. I bought the bike to make long cross country trips to clear the cob webs from my brain from time to time. I will make my first trip later this month. It has been so hot here in Louisiaina that I am afraid I will roast myself. I like the bike so far, but it is a little tall. I am 5'11" and I have to be careful when I put my feet down. I wish there was a seat height adjustment. I was looking for a good used Bimmer, but the cost made me look at the Kawi and I decided that for the money, this was a very good deal. It drives me crazy that ALL these bikes are the same color, so there is definately a paint job in the near future. I installed the largest Cee Bailey windscreen I could get. It did reduce the buffeting, but when fully up, the top of the windscreen is directly in my line of sight. I also wish there was a place to put some frame sliders. I had to repair the fairing on my VFR once, and it was horribly expensive. I just mounted a Garmin Zumo but have not used it yet. However I can tell that this is an excellent GPS based on my other unit. Any advice on the care and any heads up on issues will be appreciated. I will forward any problems as well. thanks.

Haha, those homes are a little above my price range, but you live about 1 mile away from me.

I live on Irish Glen Trail.
They are above my price range too but I took the plunge and have given up a lot of other stuff to live out here. I love not being right on top of my neighbors. The downside is I can't buy as many toys......
