I just got my bike last week and most people (non riders) ask me why I bought a kawasaki. It seems like everyone thinks the only good bike is a gsxr. I have had many non riders ask me why I got a kawasaki. But on the other hand people that know about bikes love the 636 and give me compliments on it all the time. I am just sick of everyone loving gsxr's and hating kawasaki's. I wouldnt want to trade my bike for anything else right now. I LOVE IT.
