I might figure out a way to get both the DR350 and KLR650 out there next year, presuming I have both of them in shape. If so you're welcome to the excess bike.

I suggest calling or e-mailing the vendor. Vendors don't always update their sites. Also if they are getting contacted with live bodies interested in giving them money that may speed up another run.
