Hey Bush Pilot. Thanks for the link. I'm glad the KLR worked out for you. The ST is a nice ride but to be honest, i just haven't "bonded" with it like the KLR. Maybe i'll get to put some miles on it soon and that will change.
Glad you are having a good ride. Looking forward to following along. Sorry red didn't get to back to Big Bend. Dad and i were there last winter with it.
