Cleanliness Dave
I always use one of these, (or something similar).

I keep a few of them around, they get washed every week or two, so they never get *that* funky. It is much easier than trying to wash the OEM helmet liner (even the removable ones are a pain in the butt).

Can we please talk about politics or religion? If my thread on copying a ride DVD got so much response, imagine what I could get if I talked about what a great guy Rush Limbaugh is, or how good a job Obama is doing?

Don't go there......there is a thread on the KLR650 site thatwent there....not a pretty situation. Seems even anti-American socialist/facist liberals ride bikes...and they aint nice.






See how easy that was to stir up the hornets nest ?!

I say we keep it to drinking beer and riding bikes...not necessarily in that order

I get nervous if I have less than 1.5 gallons in my tank and can't see a gas station on my GPS.
No GPS on the XR means I need to not go below 1.5 gallons...

Obama is doing a good job. He will attain most of his goals soon...

Allyn:

I wish I had a 4.6 gallon tank available (it's in use on my '02 pig). I don't need any more helmets, but I have one new Clarke 4.3 gallon tank for sale (fits XR650R), and will have a used one for sale soon, as well. It's the one you saw on my bike.

Dave

PS: Obama's the man!
