Concours 14

I purchased my Kawasaki Concours 14 on June 6, 2011 … where have you been all my life!  Why did I ever ride a V-Twin when there are inline 4’s out there?

Kawasaki’s profile of this bike
Kawasaki’s been a force to be reckoned with in the sport
touring category for a quarter of a century now. The legendary
first-generation Concours™ debuted in early 1986 to a flabbergasted
buying public and press corps, neither of which had experienced
performance and long-distance functionality blended so successfully in a
single motorcycle.
