    OUT with the "Old" and IN with the "Bold"

    I am not yet missing my lightly modded Ultra-150 that served me for almost 9 years and ranked VERY high on the "Fun-Factor" scale and got me a best GPS of 70.4 MPH. There will be some go-fast parts FS for the 1200cc Kawasaki 2-Stroke Engine and some handling parts up FS in the Classifieds soon.

    OUT with the "Old" fun, nimble machine:

    IN with the "new" big Bad-a** that I can't wait to have a summer of fun with, and learn about a totally different animal:

    Congrats. I did similar. I went from the STX-R to 300x. I kept the STX-R for the surf though.

    The 300x is a machine!

    Thanks for the congrats guys.

    Mal, you and your guys have a lot of good info you share on this site with us - especially your videos.

    It seems that you guys from "Down Under" have quite a good crew supporting the Kawasaki stuff, yourself, Waz, Nijak + others. I for one am thankful we have you guys giving us your Southern Hemisphere opinion.

    I have also read some good fb from our Moderator (GL), Chris from NY, V-Man, MeanGreenMachine, jeff007 and many others - all of whom have shared with us information which ultimately lead to me laying down my hard-earned money to "stimulate" our economy

    Manufactured in Lincoln, Nebraska Baby !!!

    PARTS?????
    what? That ski would look great with a 985 number plate on it. I hate to see a ski that beautiful get parted out but I know that is where the money is. Heck I am too invested in this sport anyway. Glad you are not selling it whole. But man that is a pretty 150.

    Haha can only go local on the old girl. It's got that many mods it might not make it home. Plus the 300x break-in period is 100 hours isn't it. That's what the missus thinks anyway
