I was talking to my local dealer on Thursday and he said that they are having a 'dealer familiarization' on Tuesday (April 24th). I would expect that they won't be in the showrooms for a few weeks,...

I had a 1990 ZX-11. It was 10 years old when I got it and it only had about 3500 miles on it. (It was immaculate)

I didn't have it very long, so I can't really comment on longevity. A buddy...

Good point on the turning radius. SWMBO has owned two (a '99 M750 and am '03 M620). The 620 was, by far, the superior bike. Find a late model 620 with a slipper clutch and you're laughing. You might...

Last I heard it was a no-go for the US market. It's the best selling bike in the UK for the last few years. But they have real graduated licensing, so there's actually a market for small bikes. ...

Sat on the X-Challenge this weekend

This is the dirt version of the 650. Tall saddle (that's fine, I've got a 35" inseam) but the air suspension wasn't sorted. It took a long time for it to rebound. Perhaps it wasn't setup...

When I had my KLR (2004, new) I would consistently get 4.5-4.8 l/100km (I'm a canuck, also). I would typically getabout 400km per 'fill', which was usually about 18l

If you're from Pennsylvannia, I can see why you would be less than impressed with NS. At least from a road surface POV, anyway.

I rode in. I typically ride in during the summer (May-October) when the dress code allows it. Otherwise, I take transit. I haven't driven a cage to work regularly in 5 years.

I hear ya, too

After I got my KLR, everything seemed overly short. I've got a Wee-Strom right now, even that seems short. I'd love to get a GS-A, but funds are limited. I'm 6'0", but with a...

Funny, I never noticed the solo seat until I read your reply. Not really an issue as SWMBO has her own ride and doesn't like riding pillion. I wonder if that's part of the reason for the price...

Hey Madrox,

The XT225 should be fine for hills. My wife has a Kawi Sherpa 250 and she's about the same size as you. We have travelled extensively over all kinds of terrain (Cabot Trail included)....

Sherpa?

Just to add some confusion to the pile.....Is the Super Sherpa still available in the US? Kawi just released it again in Canada after removing it from the market for 2005. So now we have the KLX250...

Good wear so far - I've got about 4000 km (2500...

Lots of good ideas out here so far. I agree with the bicycling shorts. It makes a big difference.
