Another Classic Kawasaki In The Garage!        

Well, I was saving my pennies to buy a new road bike, since the Ninja 650 is getting a little long in the tooth, but...

When I was just starting riding, I (and everyone else in the motorcycle world) wanted a GPZ. They were the original race ready sport bike,
and the first Kawasaki with a single shock rear suspension. A good deal came up and I ended up buying and riding this specimen home last week.

There she is, getting familiar with my workhorse, the Ninja 650.

Although it is 33 years old and in need of some maintenance and suspension, it felt so much like my classic Ninja 250 I had a smile on my face all the way home.
Got lots of plans for new parts and upgrades. I think some of the things I did with my 250s and some parts from the 650 will interchange fairly easily
(keeping part swaps in the big K family.)

More to come.
