That is an awesome answer!
Your work is incredible, and it was great meeting you at the Roll The Bones extravaganza.
Your new-generation version is one of the best bike builds I have ever seen... very exciting indeed!
If I had such a bike, I would ride it the 1000 miles round trip to RDS World Heaquarters, from Austin, where I could then explore the dirt.
But alas, I will be on a road bike because my time is more limited and I need to cruise at at least 80 mph.
I have ridden my 08 KLR from Moab Utah to Austin TX, but the motor strained and I had to check my oil often.
I have considered replacing my KLR with a Transalp - but that is more bike than I want to ride in the dirt.
Congratulations on your project!
