At least you're not here in Central Florida for labor day:/
Noooooooooooooooooo ............ not in Central Florida.
Looks like no beach time for the residents this holiday weekend. Can only hope that folks are well prepared and find a safe area to wait for weather to pass.
Seems like every part of this country has been weathering storms this past summer.
Folks are welcome to come up here to the Northeast, but then again Mother Nature and Winter are just around the corner.
Getting back to bikes. Got the 300 back from Factory Dealer service today and installation of Lowering Links. Have to admit that billing was quite a bit less than expected.
Can not figure out why some folks speak so negatively about lowering a bike. Yes, it does appear to sit just a tad bit lower. On ride home, did not notice hardly any difference in handling. If anything, I think it now turns smoother rather than sharply, as the bike is known to do. Body position on bike may be just a little bit more vertical, but still keeps the sporting position intact. Not that I had a past problem, but now know that feet are planted even more solidly on the pavement when stopped. Finally as so many state that you need to change the kick stand. Well personally, I say " NO WAY "
Stock kick stand still holds bike firmly and at a good safe parking angle.
I might have to agree that if one was to lower the rear lets say 1.5 inches or more, then you may create different ergonomics and would have to change other parts. But by lowering it just one inch, I do not know why Kawasaki does not do it themselves right on the production line.
Personally again, with the subtle changes that I have made, I think that I have made some very nice improvements to the bike and am very happy with it.
Now I think that I will keep it for a few more days.
