That labor dispute at the ports of Los Angeles, Long Beach, etc may have delayed delivery by weeks. Guess we shall see. Good luck! Oh, and I ordered the same white LT.

Is that confirmed by your dealer? Just curious. Mine hadn't heard anything as of last week.

I assume you are getting a 650 LT.

And then there was the Suzuki TL-R. I'd say it was a failed attempt by Suzuki to get into the V-twin superbike game. I do admit I always liked the TL-S, though.

My guess is they don't have them in stock. The dealer I'm purchasing from (Cycle Center of Denton) is the one who has an actual picture of their ABS (green) than a pic from the Kawasaki website.

Thanks for the feedback! I may hunt for a leftover S10. However, I read that they lowered and moved the footpegs forward a bit.

Edit: I can't find a new S10 for less than $12k.

How do the handlebars adjust?

I looked at one this week. I like them a lot. It's not as roomy as my Super Tenere which is keeping me from trading. Although, the seat was in the low position.

I wish I would have kept my 07 DL650A. Strom has much better range and with the touring tall seat fit me perfectly. I'm cramped on the S10. And it's a lot heavier.
