So I set up a simple budget and put some limits on what I wanted to get for my money. The best part about shopping online was that I did not have to wait for a catalog to show up on my doorstep. I didn’t have to deal with annoying sales people either. I wanted to deal with an English speaking support staff if I could help it. My overall experience with shopping for Kawasaki parts online was generally very good.

Example – with the advancement of cars, there came the advent of more and bigger metal recycling to hold all the waste created. Cars made our lives more efficient, and allowed for us to travel great distances on our own terms (rather than waiting for a train), but what goes up must come down, and eventually the useless hunks of metal had to be disposed of somehow. Not to mention everything else cars have done to the environment.
