I hear that chicks really dig Unimogs. That one really needs purple neon rocker panel lights though.

Congrats John. You have just posted your first post.

You should repost all of those cool Colorado pictures.

Wrong John - I would repost those pics but I was really looking for the first ride you took in the Parrot Suit. When is was really yellow and shiny, went looking through the archives.

I think OldRice was with us and we met at the Home Depot in Lake Orion. My KLR was still shiny, pre sand crashes.

Oh the memories.

I think there is a conspiracy here.

That's what's so sad about losing the old Detroit thread. Most of those parrot suit pictures were on the thread and I never made a copy for myself.

So we have a new thread and I have a new suit.

Alright I can post cool pictures too.



Jules up in the UP. A proper tractor!



I don't know who this guy is....on Lake Superior. Bruno you have a hole in your rear axle.



More of the UP trip.



I bet you didn't know that you can milk a Ducati.

That's cute, did you and Bruno call each other to make sure you wore the same suit that day.

2009 KTM 690 Adventure

As a result of vehicle content cutting due to US vs. Euro currency exchange, KTM has released the trimmed down 2009 690 Adventure in a lower cost, economical electric "Green" version. I have had the opportunity to ride this awesome piece of technology and I can honestly say that it has more torque than any 990 I've been on (we're assuming that the 990 is NOT running). I'm not just saying that because I own lots of KTM stock either. This baby is a BEAST and handles like it's on rails or has four wheels or something. BTW, $10,995 retail, $13,000 out the door at most somewhat reputable dealers, $15,500 at all other dealers ($4,000 prep charge - KTM hired BMW's ex-sales rep).

Another KTM Submarine Pilot

OK, I'VE done worse, but will never admit or heaven forbid, ever SHOW it. Hmmm, that's NOT Bruno - I wonder who that could...

Thanks Jeramey! Sorry for butchering your name the first time. Anyway, I will be at the CHC either way. Thanks for putting on a great ride!
