Thanks everyone....and "DBL", I'll take two Illudium Q-36 Explosive Space Modulators please
(we should call 'riders discounts' and see if they can stock 'them'
I gotta say a special thanks to everyone here, I think I've learned as much about bike handling and what to expect here at our forum as I have being 'out there' on the road, so I was well prepared.
It's amazing what you can pull off in a few split seconds....grabbing brakes, down shifting to second so i can power up if need be, keeping the brakes freed up, steering away, watching for other bogies diving outta the sun....
And my beloved Kawasaki Versys was 'talking' to me the entire time, keeping me informed, letting me know, keeping me safe.
I never rode another bike in my life, EVER! So if this is how a bike with 'wooden' brakes' and no ABS performs in an emergency, I say DAM!
Thank you Kawasaki. Frickin' AWESOME bike.
...And if this is the best you got to offer for seven grand!...i CAN ONLY IMAGINE HOW BLOODY AWESOME YOUR Z-1000 MUST BE!
let the good (and safe) times roll INDEED!
Thanks everyone for the thoughtful comments
OK...I'll shut up now
