My new 15 1000 LT

I was originally going to get a 15 650 LT but decided for my needs that the 1000 would better suit them. I knew I couldn't go wrong with either.

Here's the obligatory, crappy cell phone pic. I've only ridden it to work and am still breaking it in. I'll post up a ride report and better pics in a few weeks.

Nice bike. Let me guess they didn't have the bags in stock and are waiting for them?

Or was that look THEN leap?

Nope. It came with the bags. I removed them for commuting.

Reason I ask was the dock strike in CA slowed the bags down at my dealer by about a month. "They're stuck on a ship" was all they got from Kawasaki.

The two tone seems to be the more popular color scheme. So far I haven't seen a black one outside of the showroom floor.

Garage
NICE!

Did you drywall your garage with left over wallboard pieces? I have never seen so much tape on a wall.

That's how the garage was finished. The tape was mudded over. They don't finish them out (texture/paint). It makes finding a stud very easy!
