Arrow The Essential Guide to Dual Sport Motorcycling

Iíve just finished reading this. There is some very good info in here from novice to advanced, I really enjoyed it and learned a few things.

Be the first to reply and IĎll send it out to you (if youíre in the states). All I ask is that when you are finished to put your name, location, and date on the inside cover. Post it up here in the forum as I have done and pass it along. Letís see how far it can go!

Gray-haired riders donít get that way from pure luck.

I like the way you think, brother. If you pass it my way, I'll pass it on. Never can have enough books to read.

JESUS MAN! CALM DOWN! Just kidding.

I'll hit you up after I finish it. Flash, your plan is working amigo. I wonder how far the book will travel. Cool idea. Reminds me of the bed and breakfast Karen and I stayed in that had a "visitor's journal" beside the bed. Yep, wish I hadn't read it. But this should be cool.

That's interesting. Along with putting your name, location, and date on the inside cover how about we keep a "mileage" column also with a running total? So LJ would be the first entry...roughly 1,730 mi. my zip to his according to Microslop Streets and Trips.

Word. Considering the ahhh....thriftiness....of most KLR riders, I bet a LOT of people will be happy to read the book without shelling out the cash.

Hey Flash, before you send, why don't you add a sentence, too. Like what you thought of the book, or a random thought. Like:

Name
KLR Handle
Location/mileage
"My name is Flash and I am quick as a mother." (or something to that effect)
