So my wife says,Why don't you get a Bagger...

You know, so you can slow down, take more stuff, and enjoy a slower pace. Besides, you have not had a 'new' bike for many years now.

So it got me to thinking, and shopping. I mean, I will not get rd of my '05 ZX-10 ever, but it might be nice. I tried the Cruiser bagger style but I just cannot sit like that in the C-Clamp, my back will not allow it!

So for some reason the C-14 kept popping up on my radar, I mean I like Kawi but so may other bikes are great as well, Hyosung, Ural, they all have a place. SO I tried to find a Green C-14 but somebody already hogged them all to their selves, but I found an incredibly well kept, looow mileage 2013 in Wallax2.

Have already started my farkling/Streetfighter bastardization as some call it. Seems to be the norm. Here she is, the Blue Whale, The Blue Meanie....my very own Waki-Saki!








SO this is the main reason I am trying to sell my NAaked 650R Roadster....this thing is 2 axe handles wide and I need room in my garage.

  Poor Tortured

LOL - "slow down"

as-if.

i thought that, too.

until about 5 minutes after I began my first ride and noticed how it seems to "settle-in" right around 80.

things deceptive. it goes so fast so easily.......

I just had a similar change...though I came from a cruiser (the TBird shown under my user name). I looked at the Kawi, but ultimately ended up picking its slightly slimmer cousin, the Yamaha FJR1300, a 2016A model:



Hope you're enjoying your new blue sports tourer as much as I'm enjoying mine. :-)

You might want to go see a therapist about confusing your dreams with reality.
