Sad to say the bike I waited so long for is now history. Last Sunday a lady braked hard in front of me and I went over the bars and landed face first on the pavement. The bike is totaled. I'll be depressed until I can get a new one. I really loved that bike. It may not appeal to everyone but it sure did to me. Kawasaki did one hell of a good job on the 14.
I was wearing all my gear, so that saved me from haveing my face reconstructed or worse. I was in the hospital for 2 days. Broken right thumb, broken left ring finger, 8 stitches inside of my mouth, a huge gross contusion above the left knee. Ouch. I hope I can find a replacement as all of the 06 production run is sold. No bikes that have not been orderd are being shipped.
