Me, suspension tuner? Dude, I'm still trying to figure out the sag on the Vee...

But I do look damn cute in tight shorts and a halter top.

Fair enough- we'll promote Moke to suspension and make LR push the bike.

Mmmm, yeah, I made the trip out to IL for the TT and Mile this year. I stopped at the local HD shop right by the fair grounds, nice brat guys. The stares I got . Anyhow I was figuring to look at an XR there, silly mugwump, wanna leather wrist band? Not an XR in sight, actually not a lot of bikes on display at the place, 80% of the floor space was halter tops ect.... yada, yada, yada.

I will admit this is an HD that has piqued my fancy. I really liked the idea of a kitted out XR. But there are no after market hard bags and the tank is too small. I never did get around to buying one of those "cheap" sporties last year to make into a street tracker, it's still on the list though, after I get the 250 SF properly fitted out and I go into therapy to avoid buying the first C-14 from the new Kawi dealer in the area. I need a bigger driveway.

I've decided that the C-14 is the bike for me. Weight be damned (Seru)!

If I could only get my insurance agent to quote a price lower than my mortgage for coverage of the damn thing, I might be able to buy one.

I agree actually. I haven't bought it yet and probably won't. Sounds like fun, but what I'd really like is a C-7. 670 lbs is rather obtuse.

You can call me Cybil.

Well Cybil I think the Conk 14 is an excellent bike that will fit all your motorcycling needs! I'm sure Kirk will be able to get you the best quote possible on insurance and I predict you will have many a happy mile and memory. Be the first one on your block to own a shiny new Kawasaki!

For what it is the weight is not that bad, at all. Course I didn't grow up riding two stroke street bikes either. That may have had a hugh impact on my definition of heavy.
