I don't know if you can label Pinky as particular either. I have seen his electrical work.

I currently own a TW, the little mule.

I did own a KLR, for two months, and won't own another......

I'll ride pretty much any bike if i get a chance. I've ridden pretty much everything in the shop. I tried to ride a v-strom one time but the owner wouldn't let me.

The raw power was just too much for you. Not to mention it takes a serious rider to fully utilize the cutting edge suspension...

Which is why I'm considering putting forks from a 2001 wr250f on it and have a shock body from a 1988 kdx200 to build a more modern shock for it.

The rear shock on a pre 96 Dr650 is so shitty the UPGRADE is a KLR shock

if I remember correctly my KLR had two sets of big rubber bands for the shock and an old pogo stick for forks.

I'm pretty sure my 82 xl250 had better suspension.

Press conference says water ban is indefinite at this point

My water isnt affected by the spill. If anyone needs to come to my house to shower, fill up bottles, coolers or anything just let me know.

Water at my house seems to have recovered. No odor, and the stirred up sediment from flushing is gone.

The fed's finally said it is not safe if you can smell it. The state is now saying use your own judgment.

I am still hauling water and will do so for a while.

I'm holding off on drinking or cooking with it definitely. Showered in it, no irritation thankfully.
