Adios My friends...she was just ridden away...

Tough decision. In mourning. Something had to go. The LT kept rising to the surface, and then was knocked down as I tried to figure out how to keep all the bikes. Did a quick 120 mile trip last night and kept thinking.."sell her.? Why ?? How stupid would that be? "...Then so how do I keep her and the others ?

Well, sell her I did. The KLR 650 is no match for the ride and beauty of the LT, and the wife isn't too happy either. But with so many of my friends on the KLR, and it being more adaptable to using for my work, I had to make a choice. 6 bikes was way too many. Sold the XT 225 several days ago.

Today I would lay money odds, that if/when ( "IF" if the the Liberals win, WHEN...when the Conservatives stand up) that I will be looking for another.

I can only hope I find one as clean and wonderful as this one was.

I want to thank all of you for all the great info, input and friendship given through words on this forum.

I told the new owner that the best investment he could possibly make is joining this forum. I hope he does.

Adios my friends..ride safe, ride far, and keep that final drive driving !

Yeah, Bill--don't be a stranger! Just cause you don't have a BMW right now doesn't mean you have to go anywhere.
