FNG from Northern Arizona
A couple of months ago I decided that I would ride the CDR in June of 2013, In order to accomplish this goal I determined that I needed to 2 thngs right off the bat, 1. Get into shape 2. Buy a solid bike for the trip.
Still working on #1
Saw an ad on Ebay for a 2009 KLR with 2100 miles in excellant condition cosmetically as well as mechanically. So I bid the $3900 opening bid, Guess what, cosmetically the bike is marginal and I figured I would work around that,
When I got the bike back home and was able to look at it in depth I realized that there is a whole lot to do mechanically as well. (The clown that sold the bike to me had cut the aircleaner box in half for whatever reason among other atrocities)
So enough whining. At least I now will have the opportunity to rebuild the bike the right way, So I will be asking for a lot of assistance from everyone
Thanks in advance
