Kawasaki Mean Streak

Has anyone had one? I'm looking at picking up the special edition '07 tomorrow but it's a load of money so I wanted to hear some opinions first. Thanks!

A buddy of mine had one and he really liked it. It definately goes pretty good for a cruiser and it has dual disc brakes on the front which is always a plus. Another really nice cruiser is the Yamaha V-Star Raider, the murdered out black one is sweet. There were two really nice ones at Tejas bike meet last Saturday, couple guys that work there have them looking nice.

i have ridden the 1500 mean streak (few years old) and several of the 1600 mean streaks. I want one badly....but I have no money for another bike right now. It is a great bike, handles extremely well for a cruiser, sounds great, and the special edition looks amazing. plus best of all i feel really comfortable on it, where most cruisers feel awkward to me.

I am a little biased, but in the mean streak is a nice bike, but the Warrior out handles and out performs it in every way.

i saw one of them the other day at Stubbs and didnt realize at first that it was a m90. I stood there for about 10 mins looking at trying to figure out why they would screw up a 109 like that!!! putting a 200 on the back instead of the 240.... then i saw the sticker on the side.
