LOL. I think the baby steps is a good idea. The 636 is very appealing. The reaason i stick with kawi is because i found a dealership here in DFW, Tx that has swwwwweeeetttt deals on kawi's. My 500 was 5,049msrp on website. This dealership, which is 100% legit and has been in business 40 years, had my bike for 5,049 out the door. That is tax, title, license, inspection, registration, and freight and assembly out the door. It is pretty damn close to wholesale. If you are in DFW and looking for a great deal on some bikes, ATV's, watercraft, and gear look up Sammy White's Kawasaki City of Irving or of Dallas. No this isnt a lame plug for a dealer i work for LOL. I am a nerd and work for Best Buy. I was just happy with the service and the deal and am always up for referring people to a good experience.
