How about tossing a couple of ride ideas and dates out on the table for when you're back in town??
Good to hear you're hangin in. I probably won't be back in Tucson for another week, maybe 2. Then there's that pesky Ramadan thing that will keep me out of riding for a month.

The tech day details are several pages back on this thread (sorry didn't look them up for you but I'm pretty sure they're somewhere around page 43 or so).

I've heard that the new KLR's are also having doohickey issues and it's worth changing it out. You should see about signing in over at the KLR forum (www.klrforum.com) for more info.

We can bang down Wilmot and decide to take the powerline road over to SR83 to the Rosemont Jtn turn-off, or take Wilmot all the way over to Santa Rita Road and Helvetia. Once we're in the Santa Rita's we can scout around which ever way you want to go.

If anyone else is interested please post up so I have an idea of how many to expect.
I'm in.

When/where is this Tech Day? Sounds cool. I've heard of the doohickey...but do the 08-09s need that? I thought it was just a thing with the older style?
The newer 08/09 (V2's) need an upgraded Doohickey spring. I called my friend with the 08 andhe stated that he hadn't "finalized" a price on his "forced" sale. He was recovering from surgery and couldn't really talk.
It has a lot of farkles, he said he might keep some but didn't say which ones. I'll find out.

I will call him again today or tomorrow and see how he is doing and a price.

Also, if you want to read up on the KLR650, here are a few links to the KLR650 forum. The Tech Day is in Casa Grande this Saturday. There is a thread on the

Aww I work Saturday. :(

Well when he figures out what he's doing with his bike, please have him email me. zimfusion (at) hotmail (dot) com.

Sorry to hear he is forced to sell his bike and having surgery and all that. But tell him I would give it a good home at least.

There is a KLR for sale on the SEATRIDER.org for sale section. It's a local bike in nice shape.

Dave (the tucson bum) may come along too. He doesn't frequent the message boards, but he is on an 800GS, and rides about the same pace as I do (more or less...).

I'll be there, on the yellow GS.

Dave may show up on the dark gray GS...haven't heard anything from him in a day or two....so I guess we'll find out in the morning.

Sheesh. Buying a new bike can be such a process. I knew what I wanted and I wanted it now...then I started asking people for advice. People love to give advice...and on topics like motorcycles many people have very strong opinions. Strong, contradicting options it seems. I ended up really confused and stressed out about the whole thing.

Then I remembered that -duh- the whole reason I want a motorcycle is because riding is fun and de-stressifying and -duh- that's why I have a scooter!

So I went for a ride up Mt Lemmon with some friends and I'm feeling much better now. Ya know, downhill she's as fast as a motorcycle!

My new plan is to be more patient and wait until I see the right bike for my budget to appear on craigslist. Then go with my gut instinct and ignore everyone else.

Uh....wait....You want to ignore everyone who offers advice and do what your gut tells you to do, at the time that the bike you want shows up at the price you can afford?!?!?!

Come on now! That just ain't American!
