Man, I love these bikes! Yours looks incredible. They always remind me of the sport bikes of the 80's (Nighthawks, gs's, ect...) when partial fairings were just being introduced. One of my favorite motorcycle styles ever. Rider comfort seemed to be priority #1. You have an excellent example of perfection! Looks like it's been a couple months since you last posted pics in this thread. I hope you come back and post some more from time to time.

I have a few more things up my sleeve to do to it-after I finish the current Dyna mods. The Kawasaki is a very tall bike and I'm 5'7" with a 29" inseam. I'm sick of tip-toeing on it so Im lowering it about 2 inches. I'll post some pics.

Edit: I had an 86 Nighthawk..great bike...was my only transportation for three years straight. Never had a bit of problems with it and it was virtually maintenance free. Shaft drive, hydraulic valves, hydraulic clutch. Just put gas in it and go!

Oh, and that bikini fairing does a great job. I don't have to duck down or anything. My head does not buffet around. Normal seating position, very comfortable wide seat. Smooth sailing. The Kawasaki is a very easily controllable bike, tame even, just purrs around town, but if you crack the throttle open it will unleash. Hang on it may pull your arms out of their sockets.
