Spare cans are nice when you know you're going to be pushing the limit of the bike's tank, but they're kinda a pain to use on a regular basis.

Especially when you add a tailbag or something.

Well, I finally have a bike. I bought Matt's WRR. He assured me it's a single owner and was only ridden to church on Sundays, haha. It should make for a good first bike.

Congrats, Matt's turning into a regular used car salesman and mechanic all in one. Mark better look out or Matt might sneak in and steal his coveted used bike salesman award.

What's it going to take to put you into a bike today?

Hopefully doing another big time trade tomorrow......

We took in a super clean, very low miles, 95 F650GS (not Dakar) yesterday. It is an ugly color (light yellow) but they are super reliable bikes with insane gas mileage & the regular version like this have a pretty low seat height (good for the height challenged, wives or SOs)

These are amazingly good machines, if it would have been the Dakar version it would already be in my garage.

It will probably go above blue book retail, they are not easy to find in that condition & a comparable new bike is pretty $$$$$ now.

Just a little spam.
