My Story

I bought my first W650 when they came out here in the USA in 2000. Then several years later I traded it for a Kawasaki Mule which I still have and use it constantly at our ranch in Florida. Then a few years later I bought a used 2001 W650 and kept it for several years and sold it to Uncle Ernie(famous on this site RIP) in Asheville,NC who Cafed it. Then last year I finally found another that was in excellent shape (2000 miles) and bought it. Hopefully I will keep it and not foolishly sell/trade it like I did with the other two.

I too always get questions and comments on my old Triumph/BSA so I put big decals on the tank.

One guy asked who put Kawasaki decals on that old BSA?

BTW, my first real bike back in 1966 was a BSA 650 so I guess I have come full circle. The W650 is just the perfect bike to ride here in the mountains of Western North Carolina.

Would the W800 sell in sufficient numbers in the USA to justify Kawasaki bring it in?
