with apologies to Ogden Nash...
I guess they didn't sell many of these in North America? I have only seen one, about 10 years ago in Vancouver. I thought it was a BSA until I got a close-up look at it. Before seeing that bike, my earliest memories of Kawasaki motorcycles were the 500cc Mach III 2 stroke triples (there were a lot of them around, back in the day). It's always interesting what you learn when you start digging into the history of these companies.
They didn't have a very large dealer network at the time and though they were before my time, I never saw one either back in the day. I saw the occasional 250 and 350 rotary valve Avenger twin but the H1 really put them on the map. You're right, they were popular. Thanks for the comment!
