Got it.

I90 in Issaquah has the machine from the shows. They bought all of the Show KTMs. I went down and had a look today.

I'd second that. Head East on 80 to Truckee (3hours), go see Lake Tahoe, head South towards Yosemite from there. Good roads, good scenery, good times.

MOSS question

I'm thinking of a Terra, but my local dealer doesn't have the MOSS tool. Anyone know where the closest one to Seattle is?

BMW seats. What is it about them? That RT seat was torture after an hour. Some like them though, so it's definitely an individual thing.
