New kind of Adventure

My old bones have been reacting to rideing the KLR all the time so I found a smooth tourer.


I tore TurnsLeft away from the single track today and went to Tacoma to get it.



Yes we put the beautiful thing on a trailer. I had to listen to my good side and not hop on I-5
on a bike like this untill I get comfortable with it. Besides I got a good chance to BS with the Captain all day.

appropriate comments, seemingly related,,

You'll put yer eye out with that thang!
Don't expect me to get on the back of that thing with you!!
Hey!, be careful where you point that thing!
It'll do Zero to Jail,, in 6 seconds!
Sir, do you know why I stopped you?
Sir, do you know how fast you were going?

Pay the fine in accordance with the judgment of this court, Mr. Edison, are you prepared to pay the court at this time?,,see the court clerk on your way out.

It's really sweet! I could lose my license on the way to lunch with that tool!

On the other hand,, if you had a buddy in Reno who had a flat tire,, you could run down there and help him change it in a couple hours!

Yes I got the helmet. It's a large size Nolan. My present
helmet is a medium. My head has swelled since I got
the bike so it fits. It does have an intercom system so
now I can talk to myself.

Thread title made me think this was going to be KTM-related. I guess if you paint it orange, it would indeed be a new kind of Adventure.
Nice bike, nice color. Enjoy!
