    Kevin Shaw: Bad Behavior


    “So, who have you pissed off lately?”are the first words I hear on the other end of the phone. The joke has more bite than is communicated only because I know I’ve left quite the trail of ruffled feathers in my wake. Over my career as a powersports journalist, I chaffed with nearly every editor, publisher and art director I worked with. Yet, despite the occasional friction, I always managed to churn out work I was proud of, and ultimately, work people liked to read.

    This time around though, I had done more than step on the proverbial toe. At September’s 2014 Kawasaki Dealer Meeting, I had managed to weasel my way aboard a ’14 Ultra 310LX. Mind you, the media wasn’t invited to ride any of the demo units, nor were any invited to do so. Nevertheless, I found myself ripping up the briny waters of San Diego’s Mission Bay atop a metallic green-and-black supercharged Kawi. It’s amazing what asking nicely can get you.

    When seadoo brought out the advance brake system I looked at the design and thought to myself, self, let's try dumping the bucket at about 25-30mph see what happens. That was a bad move. I flew off and broke my reverse lever hahaha. It pissed me off and it was my ski so ya. It will piss them off

    LOL! Yes, I do have the same TLD helmet (I'll have to search for pics) - and the 6-inch scar running down my right shoulder where his fishing line burned into my skin at 75mph! Man, for NorCal being full of pot smoking hippies, they sure are aggressive when trying to decapitate a PWC racer!

    And thanks for all the well-wishes guys! It means a lot to my wife and I to have your support. We're only two months in and seeing some great readership even during the off-season here in the States. Please help spread the word - more readership means more advertisers, and more advertisers means more money to do better stories!
