Sign said St. Petersburg was ahead-Russia? seemed stable at 180MPH Think the blinking yellow instrument light will distract you? Lane splitting at 120MPH Legal in the Northwest?

Jay, I think Diz is saying you should buy two bikes one to keep down in AZ and one for your garage. :great:

Nice bike, but I think it needs a new color scheme. :))

You need to get one of these, Scott bought 4 of them, he has at least 2 more he'll sell.

Check out the dash, the TFT display is amazing.  8)

Thanks guys, I'm stoked!  :great:

Both are awesome bikes, but I think in the end the deciding factor was the H2SXSE+ only comes with a one year warranty and you can't even buy extensions from Kawi, factory supercharger is really cool but only a couple years old, anything going bad a couple years in could be expensive and painful, so odd that Kawi doesn't offer extensions, I think this is the first I've heard of a manufacture doing that?

Thx guys!

Yep DZ, that make 3 Ho's in the stable now, they make great bikes!

PNW weather is not playing nice this week with snow and rain, I couldn't wait anymore so her first ride was in the truck. Once home though was able to get her out for a quick rip, have to break it in so nothing crazy, but she felt great all around. Now home and bonding with her new stable mates.
