...one gallon more!....wow...speed, comfort, good wind protection, turning ease...just hope that Kawasaki doesn't water the power and torque down when it mutates into a shaft-driven Concours successor....if anything, just give it more torque for the heavy ladened shaft crowd

Thanks Fish for a great review.
At first I didn't like the (styling of the) 14, but with this kind of performance I'm starting to ponder that maybe the 14 could be the bike for me...

with all due respect to worm~hole's prefered style of speedo (get your minds out of the gutters smackhouse boys), i would have liked a large numeric LCD. I just think they're reasier to read. The white backed guages do look classy tho, and i sure like the volumn of info the LCD can display. CAN is a beautiful thing.

Just read Part 2 of Motorcycle Daily. They said the bike had a bit of a flat spot at 4000 rpm's, did you notice that at all Fish on the bikes you rode?

Have to check out 'techmounts' for their Glock holding mount. I mean you want it up front in a quick draw holster...................what's the point in having it under the seat where you can't get at it quickly?
