Don't forget the confusion he's already got because I have an old airhead and a Sheep Mobile GS..

Or are you talking about the Triumph from this summer? Cuz that one's going up for sale, too.
Oops, I had just congratulated you on your Triumph in another thread. Oh well.

I have a 2001 Guzzi Special in white. Had a V1000 convert, hooked up a
Watsonian Palma adult/child side car. Great fun, rode my two sons around with it. Was their kindergarten/elementary school ride until it wasn't cool enough for them anymore. Remember when riding it without the side car, would often hum "Born to be wild" really fun big scooter, sorry it was sold.

Have owned 5 Guzzis and have loved them all. But hey, I love anything with two wheels that I don't have to peddle.

Congratulations and glad to hear you made it out of Arkansas in one piece!
First bike I picked up without riding home was in 2004.. It was a 2002 KLR 650 and it's the one I still have. It was only 30 miles away, though.

The tires are awful, and the bike is a 2010, so it's not like they're that old.. I've run Metzeler ME33's in the past with great luck, but these are terrible.. A buddy told me to look at where they're made.. BRAZIL.. There must be a huge difference between the German tires and these..

Now to ride to work.
