I get out earlier. That makes it is now possible for me to ride the bike to work any day I want. I now have time to get home degear and get in the car to go pick up the kids.
Dig. I went looking for you the other day and Dhan told me you were off that day and would be leaving the end of the month. Congrats on the new job. I'll try to drop by the cab shop and say hey sometime.

Seems like the NW tagging has slowed down a little? are a lot of the original herders gone or just not playing right now? i was looking at the tag map and haven't seen a lot of names in a while.

I stopped by the Suzuki dealer in Winchester the other day and was talking Wee's with one of the salesmen. He said a guy riding cross country stopped in a month or so ago who had over 200,000 on his Wee.

KLR Suspension Upgrade

Does anyone here have any experience upgrading the rear shock/spring on the 2nd gen KLR? I never bottom out the front suspension, but I hate the mushy rear suspension with the stock setup and I have bottomed the rear suspension when fully loaded.
