Just Joined the Forum

Greeting to all from South Central Florida. I am considering purchasing the X300. I joined to learn from the collective wisdom of the forum.

Welcome From Canada

to the forum. I am a 650ABS rider so can't help much, the dealer that I got my 2015 from hasn't sold a X300 this year, as of yesterday when I was down getting parts.

I have never seen an X300 on the road. I think the idea of adventure bikes in this displacement category is a good one. It could appeal to different riders for different reasons. For me, I have discovered over the years that small bikes are a lot of fun to ride. I hope this model is a success for Kawasaki.

Welcome to the forum. Did you survive the hurricane without too much damage? Or even better no damage at all.

Hi Arion. Yes and no. This was a rough hurricane. We were without power for 11 days. My buildings were not damaged but the vegetation took a big hit with downed trees, broken branches, and leaves everywhere. Horticulture is my other interest beside motorcycles. I have 5 acres to maintain. I went riding this morning to take a break from the cleanup. Beautiful morning. One day at a time. Thanks for asking.

Thanks to all for the welcome. weljo2001, glad to hear that the X300 is selling well in SoCal. The fact that Kawasaki is continuing the model for 2018 is a good sign.

Welcome from Lake County in mid FLA. I have a 650LT that I've put 22k miles on since last December, so no help on the 300.

Lightly grazed from Irma, some screening blown out or had stuff come through and puncture and a couple other minor things. She did cut my annual September trip a week short, though. And missed a cool little rally put on by the Concours Owners Group in Suches , GA.

Yeah, if you want true ram air tuning, you better be willing to ram some air! (SteveinSunnyFlorida)

'99 Concours(with 234,xxx miles on it), sold
'98 KLR650
