This beast is still in my garage. I was thinking of using it as another workbench but I don't want my mess to expand beyond the current messy workbench and 6' table.

$35 for any ADV rider.

That'd make a nice reloading bench...

Too bad I don't have any room for it in my gun shop.

The bike is super sweet, I've ridden a buddies and loved it. Tranny and motor are awesome.

It was on my short list for a new scoot but the tube tires are a downside for me.

I road a friends in West Va down from Spuce Knob. Handles great. I just did not like the 39 mpg he got when he filled up. But then he road with the tac in the sweet spot all the time.

I was getting 43 mpg or better with a 15t countershaft sprocket and while riding for fun and not economy. Now with the latest tune ( actually from @Sept 13') I am expecting it to drop towards 39. I guess I can always have them change it back or get the cable and do it myself. Tune ECU is about to have an android version of their software available. But, I have an ipizzle.

Speaking of which, anyone here need some 30 cal carbine casings? I have a bag full which I will never use or reload. Am looking for some .38 casings or .243 Now back to your previous programming.

You're probably right. My top three for next bike to compliment the WR are a 800XC, Super Tenere, or the new DL1000. It will be a long while though. The wife would kill me if I buy anymore recreational vehicles.
