Hello all, I ended up selling the '96 GPZ 1100 and picked up a 2003 Kawasaki
Vulcan Classic 1500. My back issues are getting worse so I decided to just
go for the cruiser. I couldn't ask for a more comfortable ride.  the solo
seat, floor boards, riding position etc are just what the doctor ordered. I
will always miss the GPZ, but I can only do one bike at a time. I will
always be Kawasaki loyal, I always have. Thanks again to all the group
members for all the help and advice through my trials and tribulations!
Happy Trails! Signing off, Patrick
