Hi everyone

I've been a forum only subscriber since 2012, but recently acquired a 2015 Concours and upgraded membership to active member.  I have owned Kawasaki motorcycles for +30 years, with an EX-500 in '87 and a GPz1100 in '95.  Recently sold the GPz, and found a really good deal on the Concours for approx. $9k with less than 5000 miles on the odometer.  So far this bike is awesome, and  I am looking forward to learning more about this bike and the community.

Welcome.  You know, when Maw Kaw came out with the green color, I was not a big fan.  But it has really grown on me and looks sharp in person.  Great looking bike, hope to see you at a rally soon.

 :welcome:  ... and thanks for becoming a member of the club.

Hopefully you can attend the COG 2019 National Rally in Williamsport, PA and take advantage of the member rally fee discount.

There is more to be gained by members raising hands saying "I'll do that" instead of pointing fingers saying "nobody's doing that."

Welcome COGger.    :great:
     {Doesn't that sound good??}

Hope to see you at a COG event soon.
    {Mebbe the National in Pennsylvania?}  hint/hint

Ride safe, Ted

PS: I like the green...
         The green bikes are "Almost" as fast as my 2014 Red..

NOTE: (Harry will soon be here, and tell some story about green being the fastest color).
               (Don't believe him.   He lies!!!)

Welcome to the group.

I gotta say...please be careful.  :(

That is an extremely fast color you have there.
So fast, it is illegal in some states.

Some COG members (I won't mention names) will claim they have the fastest and bestest color of all.
They (all of them) are wrong.

You have been warned.

GypsyMan,

If you are free this coming Saturday, the Twin Cities Cogger's will be going on our annual Spring Ride.  It's leaves from Stillwater and takes a very nice route through SW Wisconsin and SE Minnesota.

Details are available here http://www.cog-online.org/clubportal/EventDetailPublic2.cfm?clubID=1328&EventID=256204&mo=5&tDate=%7Bd%20%272019%2D05%2D29%27%7D
