Dr

I think I saw that DR on craigslist? Funny, my FZ6 is for sale so I can pick up a DR. I want to hit the HO-CAT and MEOW.

Yes, I did pick this up from a guy on CL. It seemed like too good of a deal to pass up on. I'm very happy with it, but it's going to need a LOT of little work. After replacing the levers, mirrors, and adjusting the chain, the next thing on my list is getting the shifter and brake pedals bent out. They are both severely bent, and I don't want to have to spend $40-50 to apiece for new ones.

I bet you saved a bundle buying it with all those little repairs needed. For the life of me I can't understand people selling bikes that need simple work done. It just kills the resale.

I've seen your ad and was wondering if Keith had indeed picked up the DR you mentioned looking at...

I'm sure if you went out on a nearby river and found a pack of dolphins, they could point you to their little hydeout.

If you were to actually go by boat, pay attention to the tide schedule or you might be stranded until morning. Hilarious when i saw it happen.

If you go by boat the grab don't count. Don't believe me ask lee about the grab via airplane.

I was so close to this one! I turned around when it looked like I was just in a giant parking lot. I went home and looked at the map. Duh it's the other side of the lot.
