New Owner

Hey, just traded in my old Honda Ascot vt500ft and picked up a new KLE300.
I'm digging it so far. Still getting used to how quiet it is.

Also getting used to not having quite as much grunt as I'm used to. Though, honestly, it's got enough to do anything I could (legally) ask it to do. (Maybe it'll help me stay out of trouble...)

So...Howdy? I suppose I'll be 'seeing' all of you around.

I will say this right off about the KLE300, tires are appearing to be an issue if it becomes necessary to replace soon. Just trying to research a bit in advance of that being necessary and shopping online for tube type tires (which are a new thing for me) is frustrating.
Thankfully, the stock tires (which IRC doesn't admit to making?) are pretty decent.

Welcome aboard. Nice to see the X-300s becoming more common on the forum. A good bike is a good bike and Kawasaki apparently has figured that out.
