Beat the Couple Ride
Beat the Couple Ride
Before the Holy Week 2011, we planned for a Holy Week escapade to Dipolog City. Then on Maunday Thursday we pushed our planned for Dipolog City and visit the tourism spots in Misamis Oriental, Misamis Occidental to Zamboanga del Norte preferably at Dapitan and Dipolog City with our 135 LS Kawasaki Rouser for the remaining requirement of break-in mileage.

Bottom line is that, the Rouser 135 LS is a good sport bike. It can overtake, chase underbone type bikes. The riding position is not tiring and the seat can take for long rides. It climbs 25% out of its top speed. Wheels are big enough to take the punishing depression roads. Good suspension, 5 speed manual, 4 valves (latest in 135 class), digital odometer, speedometer, strong front brakes, it stops even at 1 finger used and economical in fuel. Itís a good sport bike to own Ďcoz of its affordability.
To the Editor:
Hope that this topic about our ride with Kawasaki Rouser 135LS should be published in the magazine..
Why on earth has Kawasaki not introduced the Rouser 135LS to the American market?
Because with name like "Rouser," it HAS to be good.
Nice write-up, Manjo!
If you can post your pictures on another site, then you can provide us with the link. This site does not like images.
