|beamwalker||I would rather sweat than bleed! Dress for the slide, not the ride!|

The great news? The first pic. Dan sold an exceptionally sorted, wonderful to ride KLR. Great power and well balanced machine. Total gentleman to do business with. I was totally jealous of my uncle's new bike. Since he (the uncle) is stuck on a research ship off the coast of North Africa, Me and my brother in law took a short, slow ride on the klrs. Me on new klr, brother in law on my klr.
The bad news? It's been a hot minute since bro in law has 'really' ridden on 2 wheels, though he is legal to ride. My bike, ridden by my truly beloved brother in law, which I was looking at in the rear view on my first ride of my wife's uncle's new KLR (catch all that?), brother in law ran wide on a corner and ended up in a ditch, ass over tea kettle. When there's a wreck, the dust cloud gives it away. He wrecked at about 40 mph. He's got road rash hands. My bike..... totally f'ed, all kindsa shits bent / broken. Me, not giving one little shit but glad to have a brother in law just pissed about screwing up an easy ride.
Then, me, saying "I love you bro, but I know we aren't friends right now"....as I cut dead skin and clean road rash off his hands drinking margaritas back at the house...pics never do justice, that shit is deep.
Me, Sh*t happens, dress for it! Long day, but everyone I love can still talk, so not really a big deal.
Atgat = all the gear all time. I'm always atgat, even neighborhood mail check. SERIOUSLY, always. Should have insisted on him wearing gloves but all I had to offer was winter leather and it was quite hot. What I did insist on; wearing helmet and wife's armored riding jacket, all which saved his bacon!! They did their job. Money well spent. But all injury could have been avoided, so my lesson. Atgat -who the hell cares about sweat.
I'll post pics much later of my bike. It's really the least important factor of this day!
Friends, Insist on atgat regardless. Sweat is way less painful than any rash I'm sure! I'm really glad to learn without dire consequences. Brother in law's aren't replaceable. Mines pretty priceless.

New price of $4200 to a member here... Would also consider a trade for something smaller. WR250R or 450R maybe a DRZ400, KTM 530, something like that...
