So, did the inmate you got this bike from say it 'ran great' when you bought it?

Just needs a carb clean and a battery charge bump....

yep,,nobody's fault really,,I was just surprised and pleased that they had a little o ring across the street at the car quest store.
Runs good now, that's all that matters to me,,this is NOT a bike I should be turned loose with in public!
that last ticket I got on the KLR,,speeding, failure to obey a traffic control device, Oh,,and the jumping off the curb into the street,,then the 2 point landing on the grass beside the shop,"Looked like you were evading!",,No Sir!,,I always ride in that back way to my shop! It's the bicycle way to the beer store and back! Been doing it for 14 years!,,I'd NEVER try to evade,,onna KLR!
,Heck Occifer!,,that ain't nuthin! wait'll I get used to this little public threat!
I'm glad I don't practice wheelies anymore,,,,,,they want my license,,or more correctly,,they don't want me to have it!
I'll fool then though,, I can ride slowly,, if I try,,and if I can remember the fine$$ from the last catch and release!
Oh good! the rain is coming back,,that'll reduce my chances of getting apprehended ,,a little bit.
These tires do not like wet pavement,,but it is kinda fun drifting corners as the rear washes out!

Not sure what your running, but Kendas are great for the dirt and will drift nice on the dry pavement, push them til they break traction, then let off on the throttle and they'll straighten right back up..................I would do that in every corner if it didn't scare the shit out me the times that happened to me

Indeed it is.

Bought a Wee Strom a couple weeks ago, so they cancel each other out, maybe.
