Thanks folks for all the kind words! There are plenty of really nice bikes on this forum, so I was surprised when mine was selected. Thanks again!

I particularly like the dual platters up front. Have you ever felt that the rear brake is too powerful?
Bill


The rear brake feels good to me, and I haven't locked it up although I suspect I could. That may be because I apply a lot more braking pressure to the front than the rear. Ed

Congratulations to Ed. Wonderful 650. Ed has been so happy with this bike he has never bought another motorcycle since the purchase. That's a long term relationship to be proud of.
321,000 miles on KZ's that I can remember. Not going to see any more.
