TKLR -- you 'da man, we've been bouncing around who, what, and where, and Bam, you've got the plan!

Make it happen and I'll be there.

I should have my KLR on the road by then, if I don't bring my new DL650 down from DC.

BlackKrau... Did PO have the Dakar professionally painted that OD green or did he do it really well himself? I'm really digging that color, think I may try it myself here shortly.

I think the owner did it himself, but did a good job. Although if you see the bike in person, there are many imperfections and other defects. Not necessarily from the job itself, but from use.

Honestly, I could care less about it though. Doesn't affect the performance or the size of my shit-eatin' grin when I ride.

I do want to find a large Dakar logo to place on the tank. Problem is, finding one I like, that looks like a high-quality permanent decal. I'd like one about 12"+ (giggity) that would wrap across the tank, but can't seem to find one above 4".

Give it more gas, if it doesn't solve the problem it will at least end the suspense.

New Year's Day thread is up here: http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=847690

Seeing as we had such a nice turnout last year, I figured there is a chance we could take over the place...so I called ahead to check on the Jolly Roger and let them know we will be headed thier way. They were thankfully spared from major damage, operating and will be happy to have us visit. They did requested a headcount a couple of days in advance. I'll track the Roll Call - and there's room for Maybe-ers as well, family meeting us there in the cage are welcome too.

Merry Christmas to all

TKLR
