So, figured I'd say hello and do the customary forum bit of posting up pics of the new ride. Nothing too out of the ordinary at this time other the forged guards on an XR instead of an XC. Picked her up last Monday and finally got some pics to post up. Only have about 200 miles on it at this time due to unseasonably cold/rainy weather, but that was all in the last two days with a limited schedule. Definitely like the bike!

My last ride was an '06 Vulcan Mean Streak. Loved the handling and styling but the lack of storage and 110mile range limited my riding. And baggers have always been so boring aesthetically as well as performance wise. But, Vic fixed all that. Couldn't pass up the great deal I received followed by the very quick sale of my old Meanie. So, I'm sure you'll see me around on here semi regularly. I know I've seen a few familiar faces on here from the Beartooth Kawasaki Forum. Same name, same guy. :) So here's those pics!






And I needed to include a nice photo of my garage...though the Meanie is on her way out. It was still nice to have three in there at the same time! Ha ha! (Meanie is the black one on the left, the one on the right is the wife's 900 Classic with a little work done)

Bike looks great. Changing to the XC bar really sets it off - good choice I think.

My last bike was also a Mean Streak and I was torn between the Cross Roads and the Cross Country. In the end, the additional wind protection and radio/ipod swayed me. My Kawi had that murder black thing going with V&H pipes - Looked mean even if it wasn't that fast. I do sort of miss watching parents pull their kids off the street when I rode by or having people jump when I cranked it in the parking lot. :ltr: Oh well, I'm older now... Bummer

Glad to have you on-board

Ha ha! Yeah, the Meanie got a few looks and the sound of the Fuggin Fabrications S-4 was amazing! I had a nice baffle in it, but it was still plenty loud and one of the lowest tones I've ever come across. Here are my two favorite pics of her:
