The Big Kawasaki is Sold

     I sold the big Kawasaki, I had to do it.  Next year’s Stampede is going to be limited to 550cc’s and the Kawai was a 1000.  The thing ran like a combo freight train and Swiss watch.  Sure there were a few mechanical issues during the race, but the engine itself ran with power and enthusiasm that inspired confidence.  This bike could really eat up the miles.
     I hate selling a motorcycle.  I feel a connection with the machine through places and adventures.  This bike and I shared a very big adventure.  Besides this bike just looked right in my garage.
     I put the shocks back on for Sean, the new owner.  I also removed the auxiliary gas tank and remounted the seat.  Sean seemed delighted with the bike and I hope he enjoys it as much as I did.
