Hey! New from S.E. Michigan.

Thank you all for this great forum, it's very informative and finally helped in making up my mind in what bike to get.

I've been riding since 2005 on a Suzuki Boulevard M50 - sold it at the end of '08. Last year without a bike really sucked.

After over a month of indecision on what bike to get (fz6, fz6r, 650r, and even the klr650) I'll be picking up my '09 Kawa V blue on Saturday
Haven't even riden one yet and already in love.

Also, I really would like have some meets with fellow southeastern riders. Riding solo is fun but riding with fellow enthusiasts is also a blast.

Welcome to the fold.
I believe there is about 6 of us Michiganders with V's that I can think of off the top of my head. SmasherOmalley recently joined us all here from Michigan.http://www.kawasakiversys.com/forums...ead.php?t=8261 As I said in a previous post, I head my way down to Ypsilanti on occasion for Depot Town's bike night. We might want to meet up there for a bite at Aubree's. They have great pizza and very cold beer.

There is a lot of nice riding west of ann-arbor (waterloo area) we should do that sometime.

Sidetracks used to be my old watering hole and also one of the many many reasons i don't drink anymore

Glad to see there are some v riders in the area.
