This is the trickest off the showroom bike I have ever seen

It is sick!

Hopefully it performs as good as it looks

Very Nice! Congratulations! Let us know how you like it after you ride it.
I'm calling up my dealer tomorrow to see where mine is.

Sweet bike & clean garage! Looks like a nice get away! Do you sit on your bike & watch racing? Have you ridden it yet? Any feedback?

I'm debating on picking up an 07 or 08, not sure. I guess the price will help me make that decision.

I really like the all black seat, goes great with the rims.

Kawi definitely has the bling factor over everyone!

Can't wait to hear a full ride report!

Congrats!

Good looking bike. That motor will feel like a top fueler compared to the Yamaha.

Congratulations on the new addition to your family. By the way, your garage set up is pretty sweet as well.

i wonder how those rims will hold up. we have lots of rocks and the rims get hammered (unadilla has nothing on kincaid park in anchorage as far as rocks). Are they annodized or painted? Maybe touch up paint will be available if its the latter.
All and all a mean looking machine.

It is getting really good now.....my only thing is a mid air "quick tap" up shift is not quite as easy as my Honda. This could be purely because of the shift lever is a bit different than I am used too.

Hey 700MX, could you tell me what brand of pre printed backgrounds those are on your bike? Did they come trimmed so that you could mate them up to the stock stickers, or did you trim them down? Thanks.

does this mean you had problems with missed shifts and neutral/false neutral shifts in the beginning but not now?

Never really had missed shifts at all. the shifting just smoothed out
