Safely in da Bronx

Well, I am finishing my first week as a New Yorker. Sure am glad I sold the LT; you would have to be an idiot to want to ride a bike that big here!!! I am going to begin looking for a replacement; Vstrom is top of the list. May just pick up a used KLR for a while.

Well, it's back to upacking boxes. I HATE CARDBOARD!!!!!!

KLR would be a good pick, I'm thinkin'. Wonder if you see scooters (Burgman, Vespa, Piaggio, etc) moving thru traffic?

Enjoy getting rid of the last piece of cardboard!! And drop by your profile and modify it when you have time. Best of luck in the new digs.

Glad you folks made it safely and are settling in. We do miss your smiling faces though!

A KLR would work perfect back there. Here's the KLR website equivalent to our beloved BMWLT site:

If you aren't good for anything else, you can always serve as a bad example.

You should head out there Doug; that'd be a nice little weekend ride for a warrior like you!
