So, what you're saying is you're not feelin' the vibe of this Kawi, eh? Just kidding. Nice sidebar addressing the vibration issues. Looking forward to the naked six-five-oh shootout.

I don't think the nose looks wonky. The profile (angulation) appears to be similar to its bigger brothers (ZX-6/10).

Neat. I still prefer the Versys, though.

I think it's great that Kwakcer (and Zooker) still try to provide a choice in bikes that aren't cruisers or race replicas. But I agree with Ensign pplassm, the Versys is more attractive. I saw a nice one with bags at REI last weekend. Good touring rig for solo touring. The EN-6n would probably make a decent light touring rig.

Funny how the two smaller Japanese bike companies seem to offer more of a selection than the big dogs.

I do too.

This message is too short.

The local brewery also has more of a selection than the big dogs too.

Who's your local brewhouse? Many of the big breweries didn't have great selection, so the simply bought up many smaller brewers/brands to capture greater market share.

You might not believe this of straight-laced Utah but we have more micro-breweries here than you can shake a stick at. Currently SWMBO and I have been frequenting Squatter's. Their full suspension ale is quite tasty.

The August Schell Brewing Company is the local brewhouse. They've been family owned and operated since 1860. Being in the most German town in the country we find reason to have some sort of "fest" every couple months or so.

From your posts we figured you were "festing" every weekend.
