KawaCati MiniStrada 650S

here i am with my KawaCati Ministrada doing some cornering on the Tail of the Dragon. For some reason everyone thought that it is a Ducati. I guess people down there dont see many Ducatis so all the red bikes to them are Ducati. However, we named it KawaCati.
Anyways, Deal's Gap was a lot of fun. Some of the turns were so tight I saw my tail light.

Funny!

I have Givi V35 bags on mine and debadged with only the Versys name on the side. The people don't know what mine is usually think it is a Buell Ulysses.

My toys:
'09 Versys in Cool Lime ~ '06 Harley Roadking
'95 Suzuki DR350S ~ '94 Suzuki DR350S
'09 Kawi STX15F jet ski ~ '07 Kawi STX12F Jetski
'09 Yamaha Superjet ~ '13 Ram 4X4 3500 Cummins
'09 BMW 535i ~ '10 Kubota B3300SU

I had the same problem this year. People confusing my Versys with a Ducati. It MUST be the red paint.

Wouldn't want my Versys confused with a Buell anything, I would stick a bloody great Kaw or Versys badge on the side.

Glad you enjoyed your trip down here. I'm lucky in that it's less than 40 miles to Deal's Gap from my house. US 129 has sort of become my "training road" as I've only got 700 miles of riding (all on my V!) under my belt. I had Friday off and made 4 complete (up and back) runs on the Dragon.

Interestingly, every time I pulled up at the store or the scenic overlook, people came over to ask about the V. Nobody seems to know what it is but they all seemed to like it!
