Thank you all for your lovely welcome here! What a smashing bunch you are! To answer tallyrex: yes I am a professional organist and former Cathedral organist. Most organists love all things mechanical, and I'm no exception! I'm looking forward to picking up my bike on Friday, and, as a bonus the weather looks good too!

As a professional organist you will be well versed with keeping your pipes clean   :028:   

There are those on here who are somewhat infatuated with polishing their pipes  :008:

Welcome from Northwest Louisiana. I'm also new to the V1000. Last in line 4 I owned was CB750 back in 1980. I love how smooth it is.

Thanks RocDoc for the tip on slack in the throttle. Mine is a lot more jumpy than my Tenere was. It's fairly smooth when cold , but gets catchy when warmed up.

Thanks RocDoc for the tip on slack in the throttle.

You’re welcome. It made a huge difference to me. All of my bikes have always had only a slight amount of slack - just enough for there to be no tension in the cable(s) for a few degrees of grip rotation - so what I was told is Kawasaki’s recommendation felt completely wrong. The mechanics in the workshop agreed with me, set it up accordingly at the first service and it’s night and day.

Where do they get the names for these colours?
