2009 with 8,300 miles ...

only 'problem' is a melted turn signal. Oh - and a dead battery (replaced with a Shorai).
not complaining. Fantastic bike.

i have a 350exc-f and i love it, ...

but if i could do it over again, i'd buy a 500xcw and plate it.
having said that, i don't wish for more power on the 350.
they are both fantastic bikes.
just my .02.

just sent my zumo 550 in for a frozen screen ...

this is my second replacement.
i thought about using the $150 credit on another model, but i have too much invested in zumo 550 mounts and accessories.

Fun ride, thanks for setting it up.

Sorry I had to peel off 20 miles short for gas.
Didn't think it would be a good night to find out what the reserve range is on the 690 (I'm sure it's at least 20 miles). Great loop. Thanks again....

Planning to move to Madison this summer ...

South and west seems like a good spot to be ... For ridding (and bicycling).
GS will get more miles in WI than it does in DFW.
Mostly ride the 690 or wr250r here.

I didn't bust the pentionmeter off, but I lost the metal clip ...

pn 13547696412. Looks like it costs around $150. Any ideas for a cheaper solution? The baling wire I twisted around it works, but I'd rather have the clip. thanks.

put wheel weights on the XD-3, that seemed to help.

Shoei hornet is a better fit, sold the Arai.
Liked the Arai visor better, though.

long shot I - any chance there's still a large for sale anywhere?

I read the posts saying they were sold out ... just thought I'd check.
