200 mile round trip today

Just got back from a 200-mile ride to visit family. Cemented the fact that I bought the right bike :-) I almost always have buyer's remorse, but not with this bike -- it just does everything so well.

I have a 2011 650V. Every time I go in the garrage and look at it I say to myself you sure are a fugly looking motocyle. But every time I ride it I am grinning ear to ear. I donít wash wax and polish it as much as its very pretty cruiser predecessor, but that just give me a little more time to ride it!

Before I bought my used 2015 I rode a pristine 2014 and thought the same thing, kinda ugly looking with that big o'l train headlight.

I do like the looks of my 2015 and definitely grin ear to ear every time I through a leg over it....and I must confess I do tend to rub, polish, and clean on it frequently. Perhaps this is what old retired guys do...hang out in the man cave and fix stuff. Then when everything is fixed we break out the polish...Lol.

2015 V-650 of course it's green...it's a Kazawalski.

Tim - I ride mine, then when I get home I "WD40" the chain, THEN I "break-out" the beer and turn on some "tunes" on my garage stereo....
