Yea, nice dualsport. I bet it gets all of 45mpg, maybe more if you're easy on it.

I think JGormley has sought asylum at the Ecuadorian embassy.

I wandered around the Rice-O-Rama for about an hour and a half yesterday. I agree with Stromper that its a good thing I was on the bike so I wasn't buying all sorts of shit I don't need. Never saw anyone I recognized.

But as I was leaving, a nice shiny DR350 with a cow pattern seat cover caught my eye. And, whoa, its parked right next to a Trans-Alp. Who would've guessed?

It's already been lowered a good inch and a half with the forks being slid up the triple trees. Do you think you need to go back up in height some?





......and my wife's dr350se gets 70 miles to the gallon all day, highway or trail use.

Rhode Trip, you rode a red KLR with hard bags? I saw it when we rode in and thought, "Hmm, who dat?"

And bomber, yeah, the forks are a mess and there's some serious raising going to go on. I love this bike, a grin machine! It weighs nothing...nothing I tell ya. If I didn't have the scoot, it'd be my everyday commutin' machine.
