Then your first pick was right on the money. I know how that goes, I got myself a $26K titanium hand implant a few years back. I immediately stopped trying to break the land/speed record for a dirtbike.

My DR650 is a 2004 with about 7000 miles. It's pretty cold blooded and usually runs cool (it's only gotten noticeably hot once on a slow steep rocky road while we were searching for a lost GoPro camera).
