You know I'm thinking you could charge a lot extra for the this unique missing teeth spacing technique, which is obviously use to increase the KLR's drive chain wear livelihood.

The weight savings is actually worth an extra 19 horsepower. This combined with removing the retaining clip on the master link netted a 21 horsepower gain.

I can't believe someone else is going through this...I thought it was just me cause if others were I was sure there would have been a revolt! Its freakin' ridiculous! The first appt we could get was at the end of April and no more Saturdays either so you have to take time off work to do it. It really is like we've stepped 30 years backwards

There is actually a passport office located in 230 Peachtree St. Not sure of the suite, but I will drop by there tomorrow when I ride past it. If you have your tickets already purchased, and the dates are set, that is the place to go. I have also use a passport service, it was pricey as hell, but it got the job done. How long do you have, and do you need a visa for the country you are going to?
