Tampa Area

Hello.

I'm currently in a holding pattern waiting for my dealer in Brandon, Florida to get my 2016 "Digital Camo" KLR 650 in. Apparently, it hasn't been released yet, but supposedly it'll be any day now.

In the meantime, I ride a 2015 Kawasaki Versys 1000 LT that I picked up new in March. It's been an outstanding sport tourer and I've racked up 18,500 miles with a couple trips out west, a couple trips to the smokys and road trips to a dozen or so other places.

I have questions on the KLR, so I thought best to post an intro first.

Bill

Woohoo, got word from my dealer moments ago that delivery of my digital camo KLR650 is two weeks out.

Bill10,
I'm pleased to read that you 'bleed lime green' also! Or maybe your just Kawasaki Faithful?
It is great to have a good dealer near you.

It will be interesting to hear how your riding partners view your new ride.

Oh, by the way. Glad that you joined us here at klrforum.

It's odd that Kawasaki didn't offer the Versys 1000 in their flagship team green during the inaugural launch of the Gen 2. Black and Orange in the states; those plus white elsewhere. I got orange.

It's available in green this year though.



Tail of the Dragon (North Carolina/Tennessee) in July.
