I agree, Steve at Harding is a decent feller, and my overall impression of the dealership is favorable.

I think the former is closer to the truth.
Buckeye Dualsporter has a Rekluse on a DRZ400, he freaking loves it for tight single track in ravines.

Is this the proper way to go about this. Seems OK to me, but figured you guys would know what to look out for.

thanks

FYI - As of a couple weeks ago there was a black (painted?), 2008+ KLR at Ohio Motorcycle in Oakwood. Wasn't priced. 10k miles, crash bars, new windscreen, pegs, luggage, master cylinder guard, mefos tires, etc. Looked to be in good condition.

I had a 2004 DrZ with a recluse and my 2006 has a rev lock. The revlock is pricer but comes with a new billot basket. And yes I do love it. Not an auto trans but an auto clutch. I set it up with the "old" clutch lever as the rear break which is great when you need to pivot right adn use the rear break!

Too bad revloc is out of the game. Their stuff loooked good, and was a bit cheaper than rekluse.

The one upside to State 8 is that when I'm bored, I can always stop in and look at most of the bikes without every having to worry about a sales person approaching me and asking if they can help me with anything.

I've been fighting the Winter-time blues by checking out every motorcycle shop within a barely reasonable driving distance of Painesville. Stopped into Harding's today based on recommendations in this thread. Nice place.

They should be stocking the show room to the point of you can't walk anywhere soon. Haven't been there in a month or so.

Saturday Morning

Anyone interested in riding woods Saturday morning? Warning: Terrain is technical single track. Studded tires recommended, but might not be necessary (hard to say with the warmer temps and rain this morning, but snow is coming and temps will be dropping fast today and tomorrow).

Rode out of the cold to Nashville yesterday. Went from heated gear and goose down to shell and helmet. In Alabama now headed to Mobile, Biloxi (hopefully to have lunch with Gorman) then New Orleans.
