KLR at University Hospital

I never do this, but...

Does anyone know who has an '08 KLR with missing fairing parts, soft bags, and yellow barkbusters sporting an ADV sticker?

I'm the guy with the ugly white DR650 you've been parking next to the last couple days and I have a really pressing question...

When in doubt leave a note on the bike.

leave a note on the bike???/!!!! Doesn't seem very high tech....ADV riders would assume that it was a parking ticket, crumple it up (unred), jump on their scooter and motor away!

Where do you guys park? I work in the physics dept directly south of the hospital and hosptial employees have taken over all of our parking... Haven't spotted any KLRs around here.

I have a rule about leaving even notes on bikes. Would rather make a fool of myself here.

Do you mean directly north? South is a trailer park.

That's what I wanted to talk to that rider about. The word from my wife (and she's done it a lot, but only at night) is that bikes can park for free around the poles by the gates where the bicycles and scooters are in the Lep*rino garage (don't want the parking nazis to search this one). I've been parking in the northwest corner, closest to the research buildings. The KLR has a parking pass sticker which makes me nervous. Those parking guys are especially vicious with students. I haven't seen the pass on any other bike, but they're expensive ($36 a MONTH for me)

Knock the bike over. That will give you a reason to leave a note. He will get back to you promptly.

I could knock it over and set it up again and they'd never notice. It's my kinda KLR- missing side panels and all.

I'm so retarded I immediately assumed you were talking about UNM's hospital and failed to notice you are in CO. Carry on...

$36 a month?! At UNM you can get a motorcycle permit for $70 for the whole year. It enables you to park in any of the (ubiquitous) motorcycle parking anywhere on campus. I'm surprised a University is charging that much for bike permits.

it may be #1Fan. Is there a Les Claypool sticker on it?

I'll text him and tell him about this thread.

Sorry guys, I was being all Denver-ist.

The parking pigs are militant here- for $54 you can get a monthly car pass... as a student. My wife is an employee and has to cough up $2/day. There is a bus pass included in tuition ($46/semester) that's a pretty good deal and I've been using it, I just want to be a little more independent sometimes.

That's me

The fairings are off because I just pulled my SW Motech bars off. I need to decide to leave them that way and get my bike back out of its rat bike state.

I was damn curious about parking in those garages because I've seen only a few stickers myself. @#$@@$!! yeah, it *IS* $36/month. I'm staff. If I'd read this message a few hours ago, I would have cancelled my sticker today. I'm leaving for vacation this weekend and will default into another quarter of fees on the 1st.

Anyway, nice DR. I really don't get KLRs now. I was surprised at how much better the bike rides with a 1/2 full tank and no bars, and no tool tube. I figure that's good for 35 lbs.

ROTFL, but thanks for the discretion, those radiators aren't that tough either.
