Hi Beklp here, owner of 2000 Kawi ZG1000 Concours. This is my second Kawi in my life of riding since I was 16 and that was a Honda S-90, but ride it I did to the tune of over 10K miles in the first yr. Since then I've owned a '68 650cc Bonneville Triumph, a '72 500cc Kawi, and a '72 1000cc Harley Sportster which I gave to my oldest son. And currently the Concours. Been riding for a while, back before they originally gave motorcyle tests or required helmets. Now it's strictly for pleasure.
