street style: a tasteful bike with sensible mods-kawi 636

With 110 horsepower, a wet weight of 420 pounds and fully adjustable suspension settings at both ends, the 2003-2004 Kawasaki 636 is a bike worth considering. The lime green paint isn't doing the bike any justice but the subtle gold accents on the stanchions, rear stand spools and bar end weights add a bit of style to an otherwise generic exterior.

I like the owner's choice in aftermarket accessories: disc lock with reminder cable; frame sliders and rear stand spools. These items all convey a sense of practicality and sensibility that you wouldn't find in someone riding a straight 600 cc sport bike.
