Forgot to mention, if you ride to the GPS class given by cyberdos, you can park your bike inside the air conditioning!

Still is! 10:00 at 306 south river drive in Tempe. After the class, I'll be able to insert a google map of it here.

outstanding! i'm looking forward to meeting you both. I don't think i'll need you to bring anything except your gps and usb cord. maybe a laptop, if you've got one.

whatever refreshments/food you require. i'll have some, but maybe not to your liking.

Well I really shouldn't be posting this since my wife checks in on my posts every once in a while and I haven't told her yet but I guess at this point it doesn't matter.

A friend of a friend is upgrading from a 96 to an 09. So he was talking to him about it since I've been looking for a cheap one for a while now.

The bike is in Connecticut. It just so happens that I'm flying out to NY in a few weeks to help my mother in law move to AZ. So I'll have some extra cargo in the truck with me coming back.



It's not pretty but neither was my old one. It works which is more than can be said of my KTM.

Nice, cyberdos! I know of a place you can keep it until you're ready to let the wife in on it....

Cyberdos gets another DR

Sometimes things just fall into place...if you have to though, you can leave some of the mother-in-laws stuff back east so you have room for the bike! First things first!

If your wife eyeballs the bike upon arrival, say you bought it for her mom so you can have some bonding time.

Congrats on the new ride, One thing I love about the DR is the reliability. Knock on wood mine have never left me stranded.

I will not be able to make it. I am in Ohio and will be working over the weekend. Sucks since I really need some good training..........You will have to school me unless I can get cyberdos to put on another clinic sometime.

Kind of miss my DR650

was a bit heavy for me on the trails I often found myself on.
Sticking with the KTM 525 for now, just a little rough on road.
Just getting a Scotts put on it, hope it helps
