2017 Race Bike

Welp, the dealer just finished uncrating it (photo he took below), I will head up there to sign the paperwork and pick her up tomorrow!!

I'm so excited to get on this thing - glad I'm getting my hands on it now so I can have some time to get it put together and hopefully some seat time before the race season kicks off again - I'd sure like to sort-of at least get up to speed on it so I can start dialing it in!

Super stoked to be back on a Kawi in general, and beyond excited to get to race this thing.



I'll update the thread as things progress, and tomorrow with some bike-n-me photos

Ya, those will be going in the garage storage to stay pristine - eventually I may pick another up for the street, and a spare set of fairings are always nice to have around either way - just in case LOL. But I wanted the white tank and the silver/green forks. Will likely powdercoat the rims white, then put the green rim tape back on.

Most of the rest of the body work will be graphics, few too many sponsors needing good real estate.

But I've always been a sucker for a white and black bike, and I love the subtle green hints, planning to incorporate something similar in the final design.

Obligatory WAY too many photos, but I'm beyond excited. Almost hardly even feels real right now! Took it for one little spin down the street just to sit on it had have it go vroom LOL, left it at the shop where they're helping me get it tracked out

I really can't wait to really to to ride this bike and get to know it better. Amazing machine, already I know that much.

At the dealership:


On our way to the shop:


Sooo new!


Ready for that first mini-ride (borrowed my friend's jacket LOL):


Last pic as a new street bike
