I'm looking at getting a bucket of ice screws and making the KDX really dangerous. It was above freezing here all day, but very mucky.



Me want.

Stop beating around the bush; tell us what you really think about it. Personally, I find it hard to get excited about four wheeled conveyances. They're just people movers.

I could get excited about a BJ45 Landcruiser, but I probably couldn't afford to keep one. Rich should have ordered Kawi green.

Their green version is too milky.

Nobody will hit me (unintentionally).
I'll be safer during hunting season.
Possible sponsorships from:
Home Depot
Hooters
Broncos
Tropicana

So far I had only one guy going off on me (in extreme Jo Momma style) as I drove down his street.

Specs:
Wheels...4 (sorry)
AWD
Lots of techno goodies (compared to my 2000 CRV)
Can tow two bikes or my little boat.
25/33 mpg
$22,800

I admit it looks a little "edgey" but I think I can pull it off.

You show up in Newfoundland on a KTM, and I'm going to feed you to the polar bears. Yes, they get the occasional polar bear there stranded from an ice floe.

Any man that can ride a KLR 250 and maintain his dignity can likely ride a danger high voltage Suby.

You wanna plan something down south during the cold season, Rich? Anton and I have been tossing around a mid-winter trip.

Winter trip...maybe.
My son ay be on the verge of buying his first house, a serious fixer upper. I have the skills, time and tools. I told him I'd give him 90 days. If the deal falls through and he buys a 30 day project instead then more definitely maybe.

Oh, and here:

I love that colour. Unfortunately VWs are generally very understated.

Just to show you much cheaper way to tow 3 bikes! Cost of a car 4000$. Almost Off road with manual transmission. And it has a cool name!!!! Honda FIT (Faget In Training) What is your model name?

I wanted a Fit but the family didn't like them and I decided I needed AWD. My Fit would have been blue. After the Fit fell from grace I lusted for a Kia Soul. It has 164hp, 26/34 mpg and a 10 year 100,000 mile warranty. It tows in Europe but the US owner's manual says DO NOT TOW. So it was on to the great pumpkin, which may have looked a little better if it were the "lump of coal".

Hmm, good point about the Soul. I'd looked at them and the Scion mini-box. I wonder if the Scion tows?

More orange.
I guess Husqvarna's colors are red and white only on the two-wheeled versions.

I have a 35 hp diesel Kyoti tractor much the same color. Wonder how it would do on The Rock?

Lawn tractors for the T'Railway! Sounds like a fun ride! We've got a 2 year old Craftsman with a 24 hp Husqvarna engine, and a cup holder! Lets go!

Um, Dear, I think the engine is the part which isn't made by Husqvarna in our tractor. I think it's a Tecumseh engine, which I imagine is an engine building tribe of aboriginals...
