Exciting news, Rog. Now we'll have a reviewer we can trust!  :152:

I love the Mk2 Lime Green but that metallic emerald color is fantastic. Kawasaki knows how to develop colors that pull the eye in and don't want to let go.

If I know our Tyke, he'll have the break-in and first oil change done in, oh, a couple of days... weather permitting...  :039:

unfortunately that color will not be available here in the US... just the dull flat black /white one.

They seem to think we want a bike that looks like a baby Orca.  :138:

I have taken the plunge and ordered one of these in this colour (the fastest BTW)  :008: 

Worst part is that they aren't available till February March 2019   :016:   


Congrats on your new set of wheels, I'll start getting the popcorn in for all the in depth reviews.  :031: :031:

Very many congratulations Rog - that is decision-making of the highest calibre.  :152:

And your timing is superb - you get to ride the arse off your old bike in the 2 or 3 months of the worst weather with that good ole Norn Ireland rain washing mud off the fields on to the roads and cows spreading their shite far and wide.  And, this is the cleverest bit, it will be some poor wave slave at the dealers that has to clean it all off and shine the down tubes whilst you ride off with a carefree wave.  :008: :008:

Now befitting your honoured position as first new owner on this Forum we look forward to your forthcoming tour of Great Britain and welcoming you as you visit us humble souls so that we can see your bike in its emerald plumage.  It should only take you about 3 weeks to cover this little island.  Do let us know when we can expect you so we can order bunting and beer.  :028:

Congrats Rog...I had thought about getting one but decided on a Tiger 1200 instead.....That 1215 cc triple is pure joy and won me over immediately.... ... It now resides next to  my 16 Versys and they get along quite nicely together in the garage.... :001:
