doc3toes nice looking ride. i'de say you made out ok on the trade. one piece of advice, when the lights and sirens are going ... just pull over and take it like a man. dont let the adrenaline get the best of you. also watch out for the left hand turns coming across your lane, they happen more frequenty on a bike like that.

masterlink ENJOY!!!! There many days that my other ride is much more appropriate, and all the riders on this forum understand that. Anybody been successful explaining this truth to a spouse that does not ride?

I did a lot of thinking and decided that a different bike would make riding more enjoyable for me. With that being said, I'm sure there are people in my area who may have better uses for it, so I traded it in and drove this away...

Nice all you need now are roads with curves!

Justinm417 I appreciate all the compliments and it is much faster than my KLR. Took it on the highway and I was at 90 mph without even knowing it... Oh, and I don't recommend speeding .

Bottom line, I'm loving this bike and I definitely have to try to stay tamed while riding it.

SLO-KLR Nice looking scooter. I would get myself in sooooo much trouble on a bike like that.

Nice Bike

Sweet looking bike!
Probably not the best choice for the sand!
Enjoy the ride, I'll bet it is a lot smoother than the KLR????
No "Doohickey" to mess with!
