Compared to the KTM: same as the KLR except KTM is more responsive and certainly has more power.

Compared to a certain yellow DRZ: I believe the yellow one is more responsive. It might be tire traction, but the yellow one is easier to wheelie. The suspension seems about the same, but I haven't gotten any air with it yet....

Overall, looks like it will be a nice dirt toy

New bike paid for, shipping is being coordinated. In an ideal situation it would be picked up on Thursday and delivered Friday. Which would *hopefully* give me enough time to get over to DMV to get it plated for a Saturday ride. That or I just have to wait for next week. Time to farkle.

I think I'm slightly indebted to Matt for awhile. Perhaps I can get the SMARs to sponsor me. I'll even put a SMAR sticker on my bike. Think of me as Bill Conger Lite.... only no awesomeness and no dakar rally.

Probably no sponsoring from my household for a while.

Hmmm. I don't want a baby... My garage is already painted... Your professional skills would be useful to balance my checkbook if I ever took the time to do that... What else can you do?

I'm game. Maybe we should make it a short trip around the Moy so Bruce can join us.

Saturday or Sunday for EB?
