Welcome to Texas.  You're going to miss the mountains, maybe the weather, but not the cost of everything.

'08 KLR650 is my other bike. (damn, that was 50lbs ago!!)

We've also got a Suzuki TU250x (daughter's) and a BMW F650GS single (wife's).

'96 Honda Magna VF750. What a fun little bike. V4 fun! Finally got all the mods I wanted done to it.
Originally bought to keep down the mileage on the S10. Tires last twice as long now!

At the start, all you need is 2 hearts and a diamond....
Later, you want a club and a spade.

I rode the FJR today after a nine month hiatus.  Holy crap!  When I went from the ST1300 to the FJR, they were quite similar.  From them to the Tenere, it was different, but all new bikes are.  But now, completely used to the Tenere....the FJR IS cramped; it DOES have "slow" steering.  I now believe the FJR has been flashed; bought it used.  The FJR's "S" mode throttle feels like the Tenere's "T" mode throttle.  (But, damn, it is SO fast)  The adoption paperwork went through on the FJR, so my youngest son is now a proud papa of a rocket ship.

Just sold my Tiger 1050 to make way for an S10, but also have a very non-standard ZRX1200r, a '76 z900, a couple of '77 z1000s and a '79 z1000ST.

I'm thinkin' the Kawis have sentimental attachments.  'Cuz Kawi hot rods to Yami adventure is a big switch.  You won't be disappointed.  ::001::

Yes, love the big naked Kawasakis. 
But for getting the miles in I like something more comfortable - hence wanting an S10 after a recent test ride. Loved the Tiger 1050, but fancied a change.

Good looking bike, but I think it would give me a wedgie.  :))

Maybe this other one that I just picked up would help with that. . .\

Well hell yeah!!  Can't get a wedgie if you don't sit down.  :))  I love watching trials competitions.  They defy the laws of physics.  ::008::

You and me both. The things a trials bike can do in the hands of a skilled rider is nothing short of amazing.
