Hope this helps.

Thank you both for the info! These all look good, so will have to check them out the next time I'm at the Revzilla showroom or my local dealer. Much appreciated!

She waits patiently for me to come outside and play.

Stuck at the desk on a glorious day.

Work for an FBO chain. (Network Engineer. Built the network for 30+ locations about a decade ago)

Don't know much about aircraft. Those could all be John Deere tractors and I would still be doing the same thing. Everyone else that works here wouldn't. :)

Here is my daily view out the window.

Houston Hobby? If so, one of my favorite FBO's. I spend too much of my time in the pointy end of that first plane in your window view. I'll have to look for that bike next time I'm there. Used to be a DR, KLR or something parked there many days. Again, if that's Hobby.

Good eye. Yes it's Hobby. And yes, you would likely see 2 KLR's parked in the no-parking pocket by the door. (One mine. One my software engineer)

But I ride the S10 daily since I got it. The KLR gets lent out or sits.
Next time you land, just ask for "cowboy". We can talk bikes all day. :)

I'll look for you next time I'm around. I always wondered who rode the KLR, but never asked around. I've been frequenting that place for over 6 years now.

Nice job. Actually, the monitor in the pic can be seen when someone comes to talk to me. So "official" stuff only. But the second monitor, Ipad, and Lumia 920 are secret weapons at my finger tips. Folks think nothing of walking by and seeing gadgets in use in an IT room. :)

Looks like there is a Merlin on the ramp (farthest to the right) - a rare sight these days. Got some time in one. They sure can be noisy.
