I know that Carabnsol just finished an epic trip and Okie Dokie is heading to Cali. I've been texting him checking on his status. I'm sure he will check in later.

I saw it on Facebook, looking forward to reading it. I hope you good time and a safe journey.

6:00am is early to you? Also, 6am in scottsdale is 7am here so you're really getting up at 7:00.

But how will Harley owners piss off their neighbors by rolling their bike out in the yard and revving the engine if it's electric?

The guys comment around the 2:00 mark is a perfect example of my point.

2009 Kawasaki KLX250s For Sale

Here is my 2009 KLX250s. I'm gonna upgrade to a bigger bike.

http://jackson.craigslist.org/mcy/4502036598.html

Send me a PM or call my cell in the add if you are interested. I can meet to deliver the bike within a reasonable driving distance - or we could meet half way. Bike is in excellent shape. No problems what so ever. Comes with extras too. Just ready to upgrade to a bigger bike and I can't have two.

Thanks

I'm gonna miss being able to ride to CSC, hand Wayne my keys, say "Fix it. PM it. etc" and him give me a demo bike to ride the rest of the day. Come back after lunch and it is all done. That is all the service I have needed so far.... I doubt GG will give me a demo or even get a oil change done the same day. But if if I do have major issues, while still under warranty (which is only until November of this year) I'm sure they can handle it!

It's not that bad. They took care of my Tenere pronto everytime it's been there. Didn't get a demo ride but hey I will take good work over they anytime. Kerry is my go to guy there.
