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

"She's a beaut, Clark." Is it shaft or belt drive?

The dealer here told me all the bikes except for the sport bikes are belt drive instead of shaft.
I like the shaft drive, but they eat a LOT of horsepower to run them as opposed to a belt. Belts are pretty good, and don't require much maintenance.

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

KM
Well, I think so. Mine weighs at least as much, but the way these bikes are designed they're quite nimble. I really don't feel like I'm riding a heavy bike - even at slow speeds. Although, when I jump on my wife's 950 it feels like a minibike.

Double nice!

That's what I'm talking about. I think they're smoother, too. Although I only have my wife's V Star 950 to compare it to, it's a very smooth running bike. I've ridden Harley full dressers, but it's been a few years, so I'd have to hop on one again to compare.
