Yeah but every now and then someone throws a monkey wrench in, like asking if there is a north - south dirt route in Arkansas....waiting for Charlie's response - it could be a classic...

I've been eyeing this trying to figure out how to justify this over the DRZ......and if I really really need it.

Scribes bike seems like a hoot. You still have to get it plated though.

The thing is the DRZ meets my needs, or has so far. The "old racer" in me is stirred by the need to go faster, but the "old man" in me knows better.

Hadn't had a Husky since 1987, fantastic bike but took a lot of time and $$$, two things I don't want to invest much in right now.

Rode dirt a grand total of 3 times in the last 2 months....and just started a $15 mill plant refurbishing that has to be done by Sept 1. Not sure how much that will allow me to break away.

The GS is beckoning and have to get in my week long journey this summer...

So probably just keep the DRZ ready to go...just talked myself out of it again...

Or you can try your luck with the G450X and enjoy that instant throttle gratification...

Trust me I've spent some time drooling over that one. Sweet bike. But again, I couldn't resist the temptation to ride it like it needs to be rode... and my 58 year old body can't take it anymore.

Also crawled over the used X-Challenge at the BMW place. I just need to stick with the "old man's" bike.
