I just tell them what it is. Most seem to be simply curious and truly interested.

there are probably a few out there that are just setting you up to say something silly ,but those types are easily spotted

When they ask what a Vstrom is I tell them it's a sport bike with a lift kit. They usually just kind of nod and we move on.

Anyone happen to have any spare GPS mounting bits they're open to selling?

I'm about to order this if I can't find the components around here which I'm guessing I can't

Anyone want to buy a CBR600RR?

I don't post on here very often, but anyone interested in buying a 2008 CBR600RR? I'm moving to Japan at the end of the summer, and plan on getting a local bike over there so I don't have to hassle with converting my Tiger 800 to japanese spec... I'll be putting my Triumph Tiger 800 up for sale in a month or so...

Anyone in the market for a nice tank bag?

I bought a used Wolfman Rainier thinking it was an Enduro. Seller didn't know either, he sent me pics and I assumed it was the right one.

Anyhow, here's the link to it
http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B005HEJ1Z4

Mines used but in great shape. Let me know if anyone wants it, we can discuss price.

DRZ can make it easy. I made it to Baltimore and back on my XT. No problem.

Heck it could "make it" to CA if I had the time, I was implying they'll be on bigger (faster) bikes so me doing 65mph on 64 for hours would probably slow the group down haha.

Bunch of wise guys...

Bought it like 2 weeks ago. Loving it so far. Definitely could go coast to coast on that thing and Im highly considering it. If my move West becomes official that will be how that bike gets there.
