Thanks. This is a good bike for what I use it for. Back roads in NE Georgia. Easier and slower than muscling my Harleys through those roads. Although I must say I would not beat on this bike like my old dirt bikes. This may be a decent fire road and Foestry road bike. I shall find out.

I've been known to flog my '87 within an inch of its life riding with sport bikes. I'm never too far behind!

Ride it like you stole it and add engine oil if you'ed care to keep it.

Modify at "YOUR OWN RISK"!

Still riding my 1987 KL650-A1. 85,000+ miles & counting

The feeling of the wind in your face can lift your heart.
