I appreciate all the imput you guys have given me..
The whole thing got away from me tho. My uncle said he had a Velorex I could have, but then changed his mind. Then I was waiting on paychecks to buy the other I had my eye on.. but the checks still havent cleared, and I leave in 19 days!
Soooo I figured it would come down to 7 days to setup and learn to drive the rig.. which seems like a bad idea.
So for the third time in one year I have come as close to hacking it as you actually can, without actually having it pan out..
When I hit Phoenix I might consider a used Ural at some point.. But the Kawi will at that point have brought me 3000+ miles, and will be magical in that special way that only can happen after you ride/drive something a distance that the average soul would never attempt.
