Considering that it has a Rekluse, throttle control is irrelevant..

Damn Swing, I'd take that bike off your hands in a heart beat...

You take payments?

Well since only buildit and sion watch my videos you probably don't know that I have very little control over anything.

I have orange envy big time but am trying to wait until this fall to get one. I'm not done beating the crap out of the WRR yet but postings about deals like this is making me rethink that policy though...lol

I'm leaning towards a 2-smoker right now too but that could change any second...

It's not a handful at all...it weighs less than your WRR and has better sproingers and quicker steering. It's got lots of grunt but it's not a quick hit of power like the smaller race bikes, pretty hard to get it out joint in fact. I was pretty amazed at how easy it is to ride on the tighter trails. I rode it all day long at Perry and never once felt like I was having to manhandle it.

Wish I could, I'd prefer to sell it to someone I like. I'll tell ya, I'll own another one when I get my time and money back. Might be new this time around, but I'm very happy with the package...suits my riding style and wants for a bike big time. I was really hoping to get it out west and stop by your way on our way this spring, but I gotta make hay while the sun is shining.

Sometimes. To quote the one armed deputy in "Unforgiven", I don't want to get killed for lack of shooting back.

Hmmm...that's got to be a new thing, I've used it in the past and never found anything that didn't work. Oh well...good thing I'm not buying shit I guess.

Yeah, I was trying to buy shit and when you said that I went to BB and found this out. I think you are right about it being a new thing because it seems I have always gotten the AMA 10% off too. :(

I bought a set and they are pretty nice. I haven't put them on a bike yet because my stable is evolving....

Wyatt and I had the opportunity to meet Jason (Jrockrat) and his lovely wife today, and a bonus was I brought home a CRF 80 for my nephew.....it's going to live at my house though for "safekeeping" . Thanks again Jason, and Wyatt wants to know when he can come back...

I took it on a lap around the pond and talk about a good time....I might get it plated and toss it on the back of my bus for campground shenanigans....

And one last post whore......If anyone is interested in a clean 2007 KLR 650, I'm maybe looking to part with mine. 13k miles, bought new by Whitey, new sprockets and chain, two brothers pipe, Moose hand guards, skidplate, 50% tires, Dakar sticker.....$2300 to an inmate here, I don't have to sell it, but if someone buys it, it will motivate me to buy a Tiger or Strom...

Does it still have the skidplate made from an old shovel?

I think it was maybe a road sign or a dryer door pilfered from rent a center....
