Tomorrow is here

At 68 or so I sold the R100RT for the reason everyone is talking about - mostly moving it around the garage and then out onto sloping gravel to get started down a long, fairly steep driveway. Tried a KLR and loved it for a year or so. Then on a whim picked up a VStrom 1000 and discovered it is still fun to ride fairly quickly. Now added an unfaired R90/6 and am happy again to be back on an Airhead. But now pushing 71, the day is coming to turn the Strom back into a KLR or similar. KLR is hard to beat, at least for those of us who have legs that reach the ground.
