My Kawasaki W650 was delivered today after arriving in Perth on Monday (had to wait for a truck with a lift to drop it round) which was amazingly quick! A true testament to Cam and the guys at Canberra Motorcycle. The bike came in a very sturdy, metal crate with a cardboard casing, Cam had also removed all the breakable/fragile items and packed them safely beside the bike.

The bike itself is immaculate apart from a small group of scratches on one of the airbox covers which I will most likely be removing from the bike anyway. Under 10k on the odo, good rubber and clean, clean, clean! I shot a video once I had the bike all unpacked.

Next up ordering the parts for stage one of the conversion and fitting them to the bike!
