Welcome. I think that is the first 2013 650 I have seen on this forum. The white looks like a nice color. Congrats

Ok so I am not very good at this ..... So hopefully the picture is there . Right now my bags are black. The white inserts for them are not available from kawasaki yet, as soon as they are I will have them.

Is there anything I need to know about during the break in period? I have ridden a Roadstar for 12 years. This is my first sport bike so it is a little bit of a different ride, but oh holy heck is it fun . Btw got to pick it up Saturday after work..... And got to ride yesterday

+1!!

Your bike looks great. When I first heard that white was one of the choices for 2013, I wasn't so sure I would like it. But the more I see bikes like yours, the more I am liking it.

Brown only in Canada too. I'm really liking the black forks, rear sets and swing arm. But the brown paint's gotta go.

White looks good. Keep the side cases black IMHO.
