The rat wears it's scares with pride. At 24 it's had some hard times. A bent shifter and clutch lever. Both fixed in the vise already. Me? I wilk be in the vise a touch longer. But just fine. I laughed as I went down. Slid to my feet and got the camera out. Its the joy of owning a rat bike. No worries.
Now I need to find a cheap new rat bike. I think I want a
KLR to adventure tour on. Something beat but sound. Something to ride the TAT with this summer and ride to South America on next winter. A bike I can drop with no worries. KTM and BMW are real nice. But not in the budget. Plus if the trip down sucks. I won't feel bad walking away from a rat klr and getting a plane home.
