Cycle world has the spark plug and they say there is no oil filter, there is a screen that needs to be cleaned.

I thought for sure I had your number, but, being the organizational giant among men, I can't find it.

I should be able to get down that way in a few hours.
I have a few things to do around here, and get the bike in the carrier.

I think he's going to do a 250 shoot out comparison, he said he was going to make an offer on that Honda.

I needed to run out and buy a new pool cover so I took the WR out for a spin. First impressions.......... KTM 450 little brother! I would swear that I was sitting on a stock KTM seat Suspension was pretty nice, better that the KLR and the brakes were way more responsive without the tendency to lock up as on the KTM. The bike is very light and nimble, but a little under powered for what I'm use to. However she clips along at 65 without straining.

Standing on the pegs the handle bar were just about right.....maybe about 0.5-1.0 inch riser for a guy over six feet. Under six feet it should be perfect.

I see this being a great geezer bike once the 650 class bikes become too hard to muscle around.

OK got to go...........CB has a few chores for me.

A 2012? Off the showroom floor?

Those little birds demand a pretty dear price (to the first owners).....kinda like custom roasted coffee.
