2006 Kawasaki Concours ZG1000 - SOLD

2006 Kawasaki Concours ZG1000

31,xxx Miles | Never Dropped | Clean Title | SOLD

Bought in May from a retired gentleman who was the second owner, because I was dead-set on riding across the country. Turns out he had done nearly the same trip the year before, so Connie has seen a close to 12,000 miles of America since 2015! Bike is clean for the mileage and has been well taken care of. I didnít need to do all of the work I put into it before the August trip, but Iíd never done a ride of that magnitudeófigured a few solid weekends of wrenching was better than weeping alongside a broken motorcycle in the badlands of South Dakota. It paid off, and 5200 miles later itís one of the best things I have ever done. This bike will eat as many miles as you can throw at it, and now that itís got a refreshed suspension, will hustle in the corners.

Why am I selling? Well, I bought it for the trip, and although the lady loves to ride two up on it, thatís not enough of a reason to keep it around. Plus, for the type of riding I do most days, the DR650 supermoto is my first pick!
