New Member with a 2014 650 ABS

Hi! New member here. Just picked up a Candy Lime Green 2014 650 ABS. It had zero miles and the dealer gave me a killer deal on it. Looking forward to adding farkels now. Couple of things I need to do right away is hard wire my GPS and possibly install some heated grips. After that it'll be saddlebags and (maybe) a top case.

I'm a long time member of the Concours Owners Group, retired Army, live in South Carolina.

G'day mate,

1st of all welcome, I'd suggest you wire the GPS through the existing wiring for accessories down on the left side of the bike behind the fairing.

Heated grips have a look at AME they are awesome, they have a great switch integrated into the grips, 6 heat setting on each individual grip and they turn themselves off and go back to the same setting once you restart the bike.

For luggage I fitted Givi racks and Kappa bags heaps cheaper than the Kawasaki branded Givi luggage and every bit as good.

Retired USAF here, living in San Antonio (winter) and central Maine (summer). Yep, it's tough but someone has to do it.
