Very happy with my bikes...

The FJR just runs, fast and smooth with no problems. The KLR runs too and if it ever does fail I can pick up a big rock and beat it back into running condition.

I remember seeing you! You were leaving the resort as I was less than a 1/4 mile from the photo stop. I distinctly remember you because I also saw you on 98 on my way to Fowlers.
