Howdy Y'all
« on: December 10, 2012, 05:44:24 pm »
Greetings from East Texas!  New to the Big K family, always owned Yamaha, Suzuki and Honda.  Traded my FJR plus cash for this `09.  It was bought new from the dealer in June 2011 by a 62 y/o who did not get to enjoy it much.  I got it last Wed and have only managed about a hundred miles so far.

Been lurking about for a couple of months gathering info here and on other Kawi forums.  Saved my "official newbi post" till I picked one up.  I've gained a lot of info here, hope to be able to add some back in the future.

My wife and sons all ride as well so that makes for some good family time.





On a short outing last Sunday.

Don't listen to ZG... the stock muffler is just fine.  And don't start painting the bike black, either!

Welcome!!  Don't let your riding partners test out your Connie.  1 - you might not get it back, or 2 - you'll be looking at getting 2 more Connie's

Keeping the stock muffler is like 'Taking One For The Team'.  :stirpot:
