Victory Vision
KLR650
BMW G650GS

Spent the day riding down to do some riding on MO county rds. Lotta fun, lotta sun. Figure I better take this chance to ride as the bike goes in the shop in a couple of weeks for new chain and sprockets, and the once over. Then come the end of March, the seat gets sent off to Renazco for new padding and upholstering.

Here's a pic I took in Grant City, MO whilst on a break for my butt.

Um I can change your chain and sprockets. While we are in there it might be wise to lube up your swing arm bearings as well.

Psssst you still need that tusk gas air vent!!

Let me know which day. Sat or Sunday? It will only take 2 hours at the most.

Also if you get a chain that you need to rivet I dont have that special tool to rivet. I use the clip type master links. When you break a chain coming home from west Fest like I did, you are very happy when you have a clip type master link and can fix it on the road.

PM sent!!

Question

Anyone have any interest in my '93 XR600R? It's platted in Johnson, Co. I have a clean/clear title and 2012 OHV stickers for it.

There are no turn signals/mirrors/horn but it has a functional headlight/tail light and brake light. FYI - the tires are not DOT legal either.

PM me if interested and I can give you the run down.

THANKS-
