... ok, so maybe it's not that bad, but it's not exactly a fighter either. But guess what? Here comes a thread anyway....you can't stop me!

So, I went shopping for an XR650L. Turns out, they're pricey in my area and my butt is much more comfy on the wide seat of the KLR...oh, and it was cheap!

So I picked up a 2003 KLR 650.

CL ad pic. Check out that trunk! Who could turn that down?!



De-trunked and skully'd up.



Ok, so I actually dumped the bike doing doughnuts in the hayfield( the tires are abysmal ) and busted the trunk I was glad to see it die a painful death.

Alright. So, I originally planned for a fork swap/ brake upgrade for the whole bike, but it's not needed. And no, it's not getting sumo'd. The rear brake is great, but front is not. The front suspension is actually pretty darn nice, but the rear shock is meh.

To do list:

- 'Fighter the front brake
- 'Fighter the rear shock
- Restore the plastics ( buy new?...pfft...that's no fun)
- Knobbies
- Kill the vac petcock ( srsly, why?)
- Racks
- Fix junk that the PO's neglected
- Crash bars ( homemade)
- More power? ( No Mike, no turbo )
Most importantly
- Wear out lots of tires


Yo, Robbo!

No turbo, wtf?! I've seen XR650s with rear turbos, I think. Do it.

That is a really nice view. Is that on your property?

No turbo because woods bike.

And yeah, I liked that pic, too. A hard storm just went through and I liked the fog sitting on the ridge. That's kinda my front yard.

Default Re: If John Deere built a motorcycle...

I almost bought one last weekend at Mid-Ohio. Talked myself out of it because I have the Duke and I'm trying to save for a house.

When I was down south last week I couldn't believe how great the views were even when I wasn't in the mountains. I think I need to find a place down there.

It really does fit. You know, what you said when you were here really stuck in my head.

The XR has so much more torque down low. It was hard not to hold out for one. The KLR ergos fit me better, though.



Fork service scheduled for this evening. $15 for a quart of 10w? Geez...
