Regarding the portrait of Tycho Brahe in Tom's post above:

Ever see the movie, "Cat Ballou?"

Gunfighter "Kid Shelleen's"(Lee Marvin's) brother,"Tim Strawn" (also Lee Marvin), had a silver prosthetic nose.

Tycho Brahe also had a metal prosthetic nose (occasioned by a duel he fought in the dark), not unlike this one:



Tim Strawn's nose was silver; Tycho's was also thought to be silver, perhaps gold, but . . . exhumation revealed the artificial nose was made of bronze (or was it brass?).

This material WILL be on your examination!

That is a great multi purpose tool Tom. Does it come fully assembled?

Haha.....nope, not likely! I spent a fair bit of effort to get my KLR's down to 350 lbs or so (wet, no fuel). The last bike in the sequence is one of mine....and that's exactly how I ride it. Extra porkage is extremely unwelcome for my "offroad centric" usage. If I had to carry that much stuff I'd buy a jeep.

Cheers,
Dave
