I introduced myself on the Kawi board before I actually got my bike. Well, I got it yesterday, a 2004 500R. And all I can say is O.M.G. I put 200 miles on it in the last two days (100 more until the 600 mile maintenance), and I can't wait to get out of the 1000 mile break in. Did some riding through the TX hill country and man... Riding is such an amazing thing. So much <3 for the beautiful bike.
Here's to a long career of rolling along on two wheels!
