Your fixed bike? A new baby? A new puppy? Getting warm, I had two out of three the past two weeks?

Oh, maybe a large HD TV?

I estimate, from your comments, that you may be traveling about 1,200-1,500 miles one way to buy this bike.

hummm...

A KLR? No, you wouldn't travel that far for one of those. It must be something special... GS Adv...?

OK it should come as no suprise that I did not do well in English

That should have said NO, two wheels . to show it was a bike .

it is not three wheels - though I do have a EML sidecar frame and leading link waiting ...

And I am home now got back about 2:30 .

So far no one is close Not a GS - Exactly not a klr you see not a porsche or a mercedes for me
Sorry guys this is really obscure kind of like the author.

Like others have said about their bikes Mine had a Brick mason build the seat.

Yesterday/s 400 or so miles were not too painfull but today.... Ouch.

Thats a great guess cant get more obscure than a bike only imported for two years - But wrong . I have looked at them in the past but for the $$$ the KLR is a better bike .

Actualy I will make it easer . No Honda ( I like the NX650 and would love to have a Africa Twin ) and nothing Chinese since you want another in an hour.

Nor a Suzuki ( never owned one other than my Samurai's) But a DS 850 would be cool .

Dinner time is closing in .

It's a 94 fresh from AZ 22 well now 23,000 KM

Pic some where in ca/az ? yesterday

It is a Duc but in keeping with my riding stile -slower than others

900 but with 750 heads ( there is debate that they may just be the 900 early SS ) I like it but the seat hurts me bum.

Cool bike Chuck.

You're going to like it. Custom seat makers are plenty if you need to go that route.
