Except for that funny lookin motor, pretty much.

That thing is starting to get broke in and I think, much to my surprise, it's making more power.

It skips the front wheel over everything. All i have to do is ask it.

Never had a bike that could pick me up like this thing does. I might as well not even be on it.

Well, there was a 79 YZ400 that could but it usually meant the earth-sky movie was showing.

Part of me hopes it doesn't meet all of these requirements.

I like the splinter analogy, btw.
I gotta say that the 690 will fill most of this request. Just this week I realized that my map setting was not on the most aggressive #. Now adjusted, it's a bit of a fire breather, and that's without having yet desmogged it, as well as putting a foam filter so it can properly breath. Then there are those who say that the aftermarket ECU makes it a "real" bike. I don't think I'd readily take it down the snotty Maine single track I'd imagine taking the 570, but it's an amazing bike on anything 2 track or more. And, it's very happy running down the pavement at 75-80.

How's it handle 2-up? I'm looking hard at my bike stable thinking about how I can shuffle things around. I love the KLX, and the KLR has been a faithful steed, but it would be nice if one bike could replace the two. Commuting, camping trips, dirt roads, mild ATV trails, etc. Must be able to handle a passenger, though, and that's the deal killer for anything I can think of that would also be able to handle 2 track.

Well, I can tell you that my 7 yr old son likes it.... My wife has no real interest in riding 2 up with me. She has indeed done it on my bigger bikes, but there's no way she'd be happy on the 690. The seat is hard. I ride road and mountain bikes a ton so it doesn't bother me, but most find it pretty unbearable. Other than the 2 up, I feel it would fit your remaining criteria very well.

Arrghh, why won't it just play here? Seriously, you'd think that there would just be a button on SmugMug that would allow you to do one step posting on ADV...

9X0

SCS even likes riding on the back as long as there's a top case or something on there. Rides the trails better than a KLR due to weight distribution and I suspect suspension.

Maine Turnpike Friday night. N. Berwick/Fryburg DS ride Saturday morning. Doesn't get much better than that. Someone out there could even pull it off 2-up. I'm not that guy but someone can do it.

Any time you want to try one let me know.

OK. Do this.

1. Open up your Smuggy window and get to your video.

2. Open a second window of this thread so you can flip back and forth to continue reading this. (Ctrl N will get you there assuming yer on a Windows type machine.)

3. In the other Maine Riders window click 'reply'.

4. Then click the little box at the top right hand corner with an 'A/A' - window should go white.

5. Now, go to your Smuggy window.

6. In the Smuggy window make the viseo you want to post the main feature. In other words, the big picture.

7. Click the 'Share' button in the top righthand corner.

8. From the drop down menu click on 'Get link'.

9. There will be 4 'tabs' across the top to choose from. The third one from the left should be 'Embeddable Links'. Click it.

10. There will be three groups to choose from. You're using the top group - 'Video Embed'. You're using the top option which is the 'Web' option. Click 'Copy' to the far right of that line. If a window pops up asking, allow access. The box that said 'Copy' should now say Copied'

11. Go back to the window you're replying in. It should be the white background from step 4. If your cursor isn't in there click it so it is. (In the advanced class we'll cover moving the cursor to where you want to insert the video in your text.)

12. Now hit 'Ctrl 'V'. The copied link should appear there.

13. Hit 'Submit Reply'

14. Congratulate yourself.

15. Buy me a beer.
