Nice looking bike. The trans is a little clunky and you get some gear noise but I don't think it's too bad. I think my nomads gotten quieter. I read some where that kaw made some changes to the 2011 trans

Nice. Can you really call an 800 pound bike a "baby"?

Nice looking new scoot there Kawtime.
Sweet deal on the wife learning to ride too. Should make for some interesting options for new holiday adventures.
