Greetings from South Jersey

Hi there Kawi fans

I haven't had a Kawasaki since I bought a new Ninja 600 (red/white/blue) back in '86, but I am looking to get another in the near future. I've owned a number of Hondas (CBR900RR, Hurricane 1000, CBR1100xx) and a Beemer K1200, but I have really got my eye on either a ZX-14R or a Concours at the moment. I'm old lol, but I like to have as much power to leave idiots behind as I can get.

I'm happy to be here, and very much looking forward to learning a lot more about both these bikes

Welcome! I think you will like the Concours. I owned a 2004 for a couple of years. It was a great bike but being an old coot, I wasn't that fond of the riding position and it was very tippy at low speeds. Having that 7.5 gallon gas tank up top contributed to it being top heavy. The later model is probably much improved. I'd love to ride a newer one. They appear to be reasonably priced used.
