    Fantastic! Now truckers, just like four wheel cagers with the same features made available to them in recent years, may engage in far more important activities while driving such as texting...

    It is a unique-to-Kawi feature. Good to see it made its way to other lines, and interesting to see it predates the cruiser term.

    Pagsta was a flash in the pan --- albeit with a generous run --- back in the early 2000's, just about the time when all the Chinese Rebel clones were hitting the market. IIRC they had three different...

    That's the thing, I believe it only exists on their cruiser line. Back in the late 90's I sampled a ZX-7 and a ZX-6R, neither bike had it. I don't believe the KLR-650 has it either. I don't know if...

    I won't pretend to know how it works. I had a 95 BUBF 1500 Vulcan and I have to say it was the best shifting bike I ever owned. With 92ft/lbs of torque at your fingertips (the industry leader at the...

    I can't speak on behalf of Kawi's sport bike line, but their entire cruiser line has been equipped with Positive Neutral Finder which helps prevent those false 1st-to-2nd changes and said line has...

    The tool kit that comes with your bike has a JIS screwdriver included. Lately that's the only tool being included in the kits, making it not entirely useless. :wink:

    I lost confidence in the OEM part on that trial run. I had to replace a fuel pump that stopped working on my chopper before, another that leaked on my red bike, and now the one that caught on fire....

    Go back and read what I posted about California's desire in banning gas engines and the ratio of licensed motorcycle riders (post #15). There is no coincidence in the year that they are aiming for.

    Shoot, a lot of ADULTS can't afford a bike now.
