I live in New York and have been bombarded with snow all winter and I havent rode my bike in about two months. I like to ride in the winter but this is just rediculios. I am having withdrawl symtoms from not riding. Did get to go to the International Motorcycle show in N.Y. City which was great. I asked the Kawi guys why no more V2K and he told me that the main platform which is now the 1700 is less intimidating for the general customer and is easier to turn and handle in parking lots and stuff like that, What ever!!!! But I have to admitt I did like the voyeger and loved the new Vaquero. I also liked the new Victories and Triumph T-Bird. Lots of nice stuff out their but Im keeping my big beast. Anyway hope spring gets here soon because I dont know how much more I can take of this.
