In the second shot I am in front of her, thinking maybe I should have let this front pass.
Always good to hear! The flexibility is one of the best selling points of the DrySpec bags. There is nearly no motorcycle out there that you cannot figure out a way to use these bags in. The photos are a perfect confirmation that the bags are indeed waterproof.

In Maypearl,Tx. It's off FM 916 just SE of FM 157. Pretty neat lil place. Mostly Harley style clothes. But pretty good atmosphere. They have a lil grill shack off to the side with misters that cool you down. It was kinda warm that day.

The ones you can't get to stay clean.

Don't forget the gnarly green ones.

Are you certain the agent was looking at the 800? I've noticed some places call the 1200 a Tiger Explorer. Still too much money, mind you.

My lowly DR is $100 a year, full coverage. One more advantage of being a bottom feeder I guess.

I transfered over my stickers from my Triumph ones.

Try Progressive or National General (formerly GMAC). I pay around $240/year on my 800 XC. I live in NY and your rates might be different.
I am an agent and the XC rate sounds far too high.

Oh and Kyle, nice Bug, ive got an all original '69 with a 1500cc Single Port.

2013: Back in Black

So, they delivered my new 800XC with a total of 2 miles on the ODO. Took it out for the inaugural shakedown ride and quickly noticed that the digital fuel guage wasn't working. Called the dealer. They told me to put at least 40 miles on it and see if that fixes the problem. I did. It didn't. Back to the shop it went. They had it for a week (two days to diagnose/fix). They're blaming the fuel tank vendor. Apparently the "sensor" contacts weren't installed correctly. Other than that, it's been a blast. Spent years MTB racing and enduro off-road, but very little two-wheel time on the street. Apparently the bike is pretty good off-road too. I think it's gonna be a little while before I hit the dirt though. Feels like I'm driving a Mack truck compared to my KX250

Some companies categorize the 800 as a "sport bike". Hell, Progressive classifies the WR250R as a sport bike and charges a fortune to insure them. GEICO charges me $350 a year for my 800XC, $100 more than my Harley and $200 more than my KTM 500 EXC (if ever a dirt bike would be mistaken for a sport bike...). I switched to GEICO when Progressive wanted to charge me nearly $1500 a year to insure a Triumph Speed Four. Dropped them on the spot when they gave me that quote.
