Default Mean Streak Owners and Adventures Thread

Thought I would start a thread for us Meanie owners with pics of our bikes and photos/stories of places we have been.

Here is a photo of my 2008 Meanie being delivered last week and one of the bike.

Anyone care to share?

More to follow...

Today's adventure.

Ordered a Pop Top windshield. http://www.memphisshades.com/metric-...hields/pop-top and had my 600 mile service done on my bike. I rolled into the dealer with exactly 600 miles on the clock.

I also mounted a Kury day bag on my bike.

I agree, I sure do like the looks of the Mean Streak. While doing my research on what bike to buy, I ran across this one.

This helped in my decision. I wonder why Kawi stopped making these bikes?

Default Here's Mine

I've only had it about 10 days, so the only real adventures have been the ride back from Utah (where I bought it) and the daily commute to work. The only thing I've done to it so far is change the oil and put gas in the tank. The previous owner added the windshield, backrest, saddlebags and engine guards. It's an 07 and only had 2,000 miles when I bought it.

Wow, sweet looking Meanie! I really like the matte black look.

Frank, if you ever make it to Huntington Beach, be sure to try Fiesta Grill on 17th. very popular with the locals. the carnitas are outstanding. can't wait to move back there, after my time is done here.

Hay Great new thread. I am a new Mean Streak owner. Found a 2007 SE with less than 600 miles.
