New 2015 650 LT. I'm back!

Got my new LT and am impressed on all the improvements over my 2009 V I sold a couple of years ago. That was a great bike but this is way better. Hopefully the bags and hand guards will be in today. The windshield actually works. The redesign was a great move by Kawi.

Congrats!
My bags arrived, going in next week. We're saving the hand guards for the 600 service.

Hey Trials, I'm 5'9" you're probably asking about the shield comment. It noisier then the old one but I wear earplugs anyway and an open face helmet with a flip down faceshield which is quieter then my full face. Slight buffeting occasionally but not enough to notice much if I run the windshield half way up.

My dealer here in Minnesota told me that the hold up is the bags. He said the bike is in some holding pen in California just waiting for Kawi to ship the bags and that they expect it maybe next week. I didn't think I'd have to wait 2 months. I just hope it's not much longer!

My bags were supposedly shipped last week the day before I picked up the bike. I'm expecting them Monday. Let's hope so.

Congrats on the new LT
The newer models are just better versions of the 09s we used to ride!
My '12 was like saying hello to an old friend
Have fun
