Personally, in my experience, I have seen more milk crates on GSA 1200's than on KLR's, but that may just be because I know Peaches!

I have the fully automatic convertible edition milkcrate. Besides, I'd buy another KLR but I'm too cheap...

'74 Z1 900 chrome fenders, front and rear. '78 were different
'74 Z1 900 tail light. '78 was rectangular
Not bad for a Beemer guy
diggin' the old Z1000

Hummm, I thought the KZ had chrome fenders until 80 and the tail light looked right to me. Oh well. I'm not perfect. Plus, it does not matter b/c it is a beautiful bike.

If you find the right people let me know. I only get quoted MSRP + taxes + fees + more bogus fees then I walk.

I'm not perfect. Aren't we all ...

it is a beautiful bike Thank ya. I'm liking it.
You're right about chrome fenders on the '78.
No biggie, I was just ribbing you because you referred to the fenders and tail light as details that tipped you off to it being a '78 .
These are off of a '74 Z1 900, just a little different than the '78 fenders. The round tail lights came on the earlier year Z1 bikes until '75, I believe.
Time to hit it

But if you do go in Got Gear, tell them thanks for sponsoring our rally in the fall... Might get us better prizes and you better prices!

I am looking at stretching the GS's legs for a few hours tomorrow. I will have a passenger, so no bushwhacking for me... I wouldn't mind a 50/50 ride though.

[QUOTE=Trophy1298;18177947]I'm good wit it. When you coming this way to ride again?


Been doing some riding------ getting used to trying to stay up on two wheels

went to Jax last night and dropped by to see if BW was still alive and return his neck warmer that i borrowed last ride with all of ya'll

did not know that BW was trying to install a small pond (evidently for fishing or holding catches from bigger ponds) in his jeep ------but I did get to find out that Jeep has SUMO wrestlers that installed the seats

seems like I had a new to me dog follow me home from my last training session in Texas---going to have to stop bringing stray things back to Ms -they are getting expensive

gonna have to catch up with you and go riding somewhere maybe ya'll can have some patience and help me learn to stay upright on two wheels

be in Madison Sat for meeting and lunch see what happens after that -------------

Later David
