    It is my first bike and A bike I will never part with for many reasons. Absolutely fantastic on the road even if a little choppy behind the small windshield. The sporty feel paired with a relatively upright seating position make for a bike that can be ridden with bravado from dusk till dawn and it has been. Marketed as being a versatile system Kawasaki said it would venture down those tempting gravel trails and that it did many times with great success. The tiny 17" front wheel can sap confidence in deep gravel but if anything as a new rider this thought me a lot about the workings of a motorcycle in such a situation. However the line is drawn there. Its a little delicate for single track or technical riding and the tall but road oriented suspension left me fearing for the the bike at times to the point that it shook a fan brush out of line on one ride and left me nursing the bike home without a working fan. A great bike, I really can't stress that enough but if your wanting to be aggressive off road it may not be the unit for you.
