A bike that comes with its own chase truck? That doesn't bode well.

All lower 48 states plus Alaska on the K13GT in two weeks . . .

Some people see the gas tank as half empty. Some see it as half full. All I care is that I know where the next tankful is coming from...

That's a KLR isn't it Neil?

Congrats - lets see how clean you keep it.

Re: I'm a Bike-A-Aholic

yes, It's the new 08 KLR. I couldn't see myself spending the money on a 800GS this year after putting up a new barn. I haven't even rode it yet. If I get enough time today im going to take out the oil and throw some Rotella in it and give it a good break in 25 miles.

I did sit on a Husky 610. Wow did it feel nice! But the seat would need a cover or something if you wanted to go any distance on it.

Sure, I just rode it 15 miles. I'm going to ride 15 more and change the oil and filter again. I'll tell you one thing, it doesn't have near the wind protection that I'm used to. But the engine does feel pretty good. No vibration that I could feel up to 70.

You won't ride it untill I get my Happy Trail guards on though. Those guards are expensive. That is if I get to try out the GT
