New member. Call me Hank!

First street bike is my new 2016 Kawasaki Versys 650 LT orange/black. Grew up riding dirt and finally decided to hit the pavement. From NC. I've had the bike for about a week and loving every second so far!

And some things and how they work makes no sense to me and I joined in 2008.

So first click the red private message, it will open, click on the message, right hand corner when it opens is a black "Forward Message" beside that is "Quote" ( which really is reply)click quote and enter in anything 10/4 , received loud and clear, below that is a green "submit message" ( send )

If at any time you get a warning you don't have permission, I need you to post that.
Now the best part, to get out of that, click the red private message again and unless you have more messages it will erase the message count of 1 unread message, click active topics and your back

And if it gets too frustrating just forget it, no worries, and thank you for trying.

will try on home computer

Not seeing the quotes or any way to reply. just an option to "delete message". Maybe its this work computer. On another note if I go to your profile and try to send a message it does say that I don't have permission. Due to post count I believe. Thanks for your help so far.

That matte orange finish is really pretty. Kinda wish I had been able to find one like that when I bought my green one, but the price was nearly $1500 more for the 2016 Orange vs 2015 Green (both new).

Nathan, I agree. Its one of those colors where you see it in person and just say "wow". I looked at it right next to the black version at the dealer. Didn't give me a warm and fuzzy feeling inside like the orange did. You have an awesome bike either way! Never know what color options we'll see in the future.

Hey, looks like mine! I wanted white, but all they had was orange or black, so orange it was. I really like it, the bees do too.

BEST,

Same color and year here. If that's an HJC IS-17 helmet, we have the same helmet as well.

I have had mine since Jan. and recently hit 1000 miles by doing a 390 m day trip to the Texas coast (San Antonio to Rockport).
