I look forward to taking delivery of a Z400 in the next few weeks. Thank you for letting take advantage of the great information on this forum. Living in South Carolina I am able to ride year 'round. Dad bought me my first bike in 1964, bought it home from a dealer 30 miles away in the back of a '56 Plymouth (seat removed). Over the years I have owned a number of motorcycles; Yamaha (80-1300cc), Honda 650, BMW 1150, Moto Guzzi 850 and Suzuki Burgman 400. This will be my first Kawasaki. Very excited to start putting some miles on it. I'll be 74 soon and not being as strong as I once was I expect the lighter bike will be a blessing.
