I can't own bikes like that anymore, lawyers cost too much.

did ya get the automatic?
An FJR had been on my mind since the re-routed the airflow in the '06 model to handle the engine heat. A dealer in Georgia had one offered at cost less holdback. I had an offer for the KLR at what I had in it. Just...couldn't...resist.

No on the auto. Bad write-ups in the cycle magazines, plus I like traditional shifting.

As for the twist of the wrist, back from Daytona in 20 hours, and I stopped for 1 hour for a nice dinner. For 2 hours across Tenn. and never got below 90 mph, usually above 100 mph. Need to get heated grips and put on the laminar lip I purchased for it.

I do need a 650 dual-sport to have some off-road fun.
