In case anyone wants a KLR that looks similar to mine, but won't be as cool...

Thursday morning

Planning to head southwest (MS) Thursday morning, if anyone can ride along let me know.

I'm working on routes for dFR 2012. And business is slow right now and I have some time to ride.

Wish I could make it too, but I have to work AND have a meeting that night I'd have to be back for! (And I'm skipping "meet the teachers" night to go to that meeting....)

No need to clean this one. It is amazing. Looks like a brand new bike. When I walked into the garage of the guy selling it, I knew it was a solid bike. His garage was cleaner than any I have ever seen. He had spreadsheets on his bikes, and all receipts of work done, parts purchased, etc... Going through all the paperwork he gave me I noticed that oil filters have gone up .23 since 2002.

I plan on riding it tomorrow, then my normal, pull apart and check it all out so I KNOW for myself that there are no issues in need of attention.

Thanks Roy.


The guy I bought it from said he was selling it cheap b/c of the high milage (50,000). I waited until we settled on a price b4 I told him that at 80,000 miles on my last Trophy, I still would have left on a RTW trip with no concerns.

Thanks,
I almost came by your house on my way home with it last night, but it was late and I was pretty sure there was a little redheaded boy waiting up until I got home to see the new bike. Fisrt thing he did this morning was open the garage door and say, "Wow! That is one clean bike."
