My bikes fight

A couple of weeks ago I was moving the klr and it fell against my voyager, smashed the brand new fender that I had put on the voyager last fall, nothing happened to the klr, I was sick, $800 damage, luckily Sanders cycle here on town was right on it, I was leaving for Texas the next week and had to have the bike fixed, That was a expensive week, because a few days before I was riding to work and my cooler fell off the back of the bike and had my ph in it, a car ran it over, that was $100 for the insurance, and having a second bike caused me to become single because my gf thought she should have a ring before I had a second bike, so hopefully it gets better with this bike lol just my little rant.

The wife dropped a bag she wears around her waist that had her glasses, her phone and her 9mm LC9 in it. A car ran over it and killed the phone and the glasses. The pistol was fine.

That piece is about $300, was able to fix it, you have to look closely and to see where it cracked.

If my bikes ever act up like that, I am going to make them park in opposite corners!

Feud!

I heard somewhere that KLR's & Voyagers have had this Feud going on for years.
I'd keep an eye on that Voyager. Pay back is a bitch!
