My first job out of high school was tech for a Kawasaki dealership. I lost count after a few years, but have probably put more miles on other peoples rides than most will ever on their own? There are (exceptions). Personally I've owned 9 Kawasakis over the years, including my present 09 Smurf Edition. (43,344 miles yesterday). Gotta like a guy into motards, I had a 05 KTM 625 SMC until stolen in 06. My fastest riding partner, Jim (motarded 640 Adventure) and I are planning a 2 day ride soon to include the Suchees GA area, Deal's Gap, and the Devil's Triangle. Unless we're sideways and involved we do WAVE! Welcome abroad.
