It's Purdy....Sounds brand new and has all the bells and whistles, I love it, the color is nice..Green and black....Soon I shall show you guys.... I couldn't quite afford the 1500 and I saw this on craigslist and fell in love...You guys know how that is.....I shall keep Ginger and I will figure out a new name for this Kawa.. Most of you guys will understand because if you ever had a Kawa you love that sound.... :D

Yup, totally hear you....the Kawis are the muscle of the import area. I had a Vulcan and loved it. I keep looking at the 1700 Vulcan Voyager, but it does not have a reverse, and I damn love that reverse.

Congrats anyway, those 1200 Kawis are strong runners, never really made it in the touring end but was as close as a design as a 1200 wing at the time, just more throat.

Pics of course, always pics.

I just knew you would come down with the dreaded (MBS) and now you have done it haha. I had a brand new 1981 KZ 750 ltd and loved the power it had,but I really love my 96 Goldwing. I hope you have a lot of fun with it and be careful Martin as I know it will be somewhat different ride then what your use to good luck.----------------------------------Hal

You found a very nice motorcycle. I like them all.. I like some better than others... that Kaw is a sweet looking ride!
I am wrong as often as I am right concerning what is wrong with someone else' motorcycle without having seen the machine in person. Guessing with limited information, as to the source of the trouble, is sketchy at best.

Ha ha ha good one,, Naw, going to leave it alone, getting new tires for it as it has a wander, tested the front end [stem bearings] I feel no dead spots, feels good, but the PO has two different tires mounted on it... I'll check the frame bolts and swingarm's torque, same with the steering stem's.... But I like the green....No paint required,,, I am really liking the OD on it at 70 mph it's relaxed at maybe 3k or less.. My 81 as you know is geared for 55 mph and is way up in the 4k's area close to 5k at that same speed...I'd still like to get a 1500 though... maybe next one... :D
