    TOday I brought home my new ride. I just purchased a Kawasaki Drifter. It has been a while since i rode but it didnt take long to get it back. I love it. If you couldnt tell I am really excited about riding.

    Those Drifters are sweet!!! Retro to the max. I think that they out-Harley on that one.

    It's still disconcerting for me to pull up on something thinking that it's a customized Harley and have it turned out to be a Japanese cruiser. But it's good though.

    BTW, I saw the Honda Rune in real life last weekend. It looks much better in real life than on photos.

    it is the 1500 and I am waiting to take the next avaliable MSF class. I have had so many people compliment me on the bike and the first thing that comes out of their mouth is "Is that a Harley"... :)

    And your answer should be "Hell no! It's a Kawi, thank God."
    Congratulations!

    For our part, we love and lust after the Drifter. What color scheme did you purchase? Pix?

    Ride Safe.

    We trudge on (and on).

    He should say "Do you see parts shaking off?"

    That's all I need to say, other than congratulations and nice wheels. The Drifters are sweet. Beats trying to find an old Indian in running order for the same price! ;) (Oh wait, that can't be done, can it? And why do so many people mistake an Indian-inspired ride for a Harley?)
