Did you trade the 'strom? I saw you pulled the ad on it. I noticed because I was trying to figure a way to make a deal on that from you.

Nice! Congrats are in order. Now you just need about $4k worth of farkles

Bill, about time on the skidplate! Now you just have to find a free weekend to go exploring. I took Adam to a sandpit today and man, you should have seen the smile on his face. He was riding the KLR like a rally bike.

wish I had known I could have made you a really good deal for what they gave me on trade...The dealer has known me for 10 yrs but still kept saying really 30,000 miles on it.."you live in Maine don't ya"

Some people just don't get it.

The guy I bring my bikes to for inspections every year just shakes his head when he writes down my mileages. I've got 25k on the garage queen VFR, 50k on my '04 Strom and >75k on the FJR. And I never really get to go anywhere on them...


Best of luck with the new S10. I know a few ex-FJR guys that have them now and they all love 'em. Great platform for riding the generally crappy roads of northern New England.
