My son sent me a picture of that bike last week when he bought it. Really cool!

Heck, I would even go as far as selling him my '07 KLR650 for $3200. And that's a deal!
If he was interested and contacted me, I'd give him a ADVNEWB price deal and advise him against paying $3200 for an old worn out 2007 model...

old, worn out? you are talking about the bike, right?
Heck, yours sees more miles than mine. 25k on this one, and it's got a new..wait for it....
air filter...

That's funny. Mine has a new air filter and comes with a spare... What's your point?

Can't believe all the bikes for sale right now. I have 3 for sale. And could stand to sell 4.
You looking to get a new Tiger 800?
I want to get down to 3 bikes, but can't seem to figure out which 3...
I know I want a lighter bike for off road stuff.

Gotta sell them before next year when no one will have any money!!!
I have a mutliyear plan to convert to a Tiger 800 XC for now (with the CRF230 I currently have) and later add a light weight single track bike. But gotta move the ones I have now... If I can't get any interest in them on the many sites I have them listed on now, I may take one or both down to Kickstand consignment room. If I could sell one, I could possibly lose the other in trade-in, but I won't get much for it that way... Schall would give me more than I'd get in trade in at a dealership!!!

All good points. Won't get into politico here, but WTF is going on??????

Yup, I feel the same way, just moving one right now would feel good. I know I can ALWAYS sell a KLR. Those things fly right outta here with hardly any problems. Funny thing is, it's the Italian bikes that take the most effort to move, and they're the best performing bikes in their respective class.

It's the fear over parts and service prices... As an Ode to CrashDummy, I call it the Benelli Effect.

A couple of weeks ago a few people mentioned getting some off road training. I don't know anything about this organization but they are coming to Jackson in February.

Yeah really. Good one. I had completely forgotten about that dealio until now

FWIW, there are ways around the HIGH prices of parts with diligent web searching. The service part is basically just like any other steed. Once you learn certain procedures it's all elementary. From that point on, it all depends on how much you want to learn about your machine and the tools you want to invest in.

That said, I THINK anyone in this group can keep a DR, DRZ or a KLR running long enough to get back home...

Hey guys, thanks for the advice on the 94 DR650. I am going to go take a look as soon as I get a chance. On a side note, I'm looking for an old (1970's) Japanese Standard.. Mainly a Yamaha xs650.. I'm having a hard time finding anything. Anyone on here know something I don't?
