Rack does look a little, uh, bent. Nah, I'm not looking for another bike. It's just nice to see another clean looking '07 out there, bent rack and all.

It's amazing what can happen when a small engine is combined with low gears.

Hi/low gearing is so cool. The old Subaru wagons had that and they were great. Would that manufacturers were a little more adventurous in their product offerings.

Misc Bits

Ricky, what you need is that WR450R that Yamaha doesn't make. Or maybe build yourself another KLX. Find a rolling chassis for your motor?

Went for a ride today and saw some nice fall colors....
