You're gonna love that bike- I would for sure, been thinking about a change and the Z-900 would be on the list.

Admittedly, it's a long list but my lottery investments gotta pay off sometime.

Looks like the seat isn't a 'nads slam against the tank when braking' torture device in the usual Kaw fashion.

I also have a 2017 Z900 which is a great bike””” BUT””” I Prefer my 2019 Versys 650 because of the more upright riding position & mpg.

I saw they have a "fire" sale going on.

Yes - and they said that they had moved more than 80 units in about five days

Well it's been cold and raining and we've had one day with HEAVY fog but I've managed 200 miles.

One thing that I have learned is to get gasoline when there is no one around because they will talk you to death.

The seat is actually very comfortable, but I've not been in it for any longer than 45 minutes at a stretch.
I'm in my 60's. Nothing hurts. That's a good sign.

Haven't ridden it enough yet for any type of decent review - but - so far, so good though.

She sure is beautiful. I'd imagine it's going to be tough to put her away (soon) for winter

Thanks for sharing and be safe!

We had snow flurries this morning.

Ya know, they have all manner of "stuff" in those catalogs........

So, I'm "pre" installing..... "accessories"

All of those yours? Good for You!
I thought there may have been a Moto Guzzi tucked in there somewhere.
Nice touch with Kermit photo bombing those shots.
Cheers!

Good eye. Yes, there is a Moto Guzzi hiding in there.

Yes, we have a collection of motorbikes. It's not my fault. The Wife picks them out

@PAULIBIKER - c'mon down !

We have a walk-out basement (climate-controlled storage) if you need a place to store it over the winter. You can buy the bike, take the short ride here, and then we'll simply park the two cousins next to each other. No muss, no fuss.
