Lol ,I had to go to Penrith to pick mine up . Good run home up the Putty though !

Not surprised, Carl from Kawasaki Connection had to do a dealer swap and go to Orange to pick mine up for me.

Welcome to yet another Aussie. Good to see a few are getting sold here. Back in 1974 I tossed up between a Z1 and a Ducati 860 GT ( virtually priced the same at about $2000 then). On that occasion, the Ducati won. Many would question that decision but it lead me onto a Ducati 900 SS and big Suzuki GS models. So last year when I decided on another new bike, I opted for the RS. because of its semi traditional looks .  My decision in 1974 helped me decide to try the Kawa this time. At 70 , it has heaps of power for me, but is still well mannered in traffic if I venture there.
Like you I chose the Jaffa in 2019, but I also like the 2020 green and yellow. My nearest dealer had the Jaffa on his main display pedestal and a grren Cafe which I was able to test ride. Loved the Cafe fairing and bars, but not the colour. Others disagree ( as with my Ducati 860 decision, ha ha).
Enjoy your new ride. There is heaps of advice here on the forum.

Hey NothinSuss, welcome to the forum. I'm just over in Branxton. Hope to catch you around some time. I spotted a Jaffa parked near the pet shop in Branxton last Saturday, not you by any chance?

Welcome to the forum.  I have to agree the Root beer is my favorite classic.  Even though I've seen very few variations I didn't like.  My 1976 H2-750 triple was just about a perfect match.   Good Luck & Ride Safe   :305:
