The cosmetics then the gasket and other weeping around the engine. It sounds like the charging system is down, last week he had to jump start it to get it running I think it is running on battery power. I want the bike as a project the 350 fell through. This is about the price I was willing to go. It he agrees I will take the bike to a wrench or take one with me. If there are anymore problems burning oil. shocks etc. I will post to the forum. I don't want a total rebuild.

Alfred,
If your interested and make a date let me know I can bring an electrical tester and a compression gauge and go over it with you.

Yeah, I've been watching this one too. Just make sure you do your reasearch, Alfred. According to DR Rock (and the world), the pre '96 DR is a different bike than '96 and up. I realize that you're not shy of older bikes, but the newer version does seem to have more parts/farkles available.

Having said that, I'm sure it's still easy to work on and that's a good price.

You should spend hours and hours reading this thread since you're DR huntin':

Pre 96 DR650 thread

http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=61568

The much larger DR650 thread is great but not too much info on pre 96 DR's. Hopefully the above thread will give you a little more specific info.

Did I ask this question already?

Too many pages in this thread and no brain left...

Anyone know where to get Motorcycle Consumer News in the city? I looked everywhere when the 08KLR review came out, but couldn't find it in any big book store or newsstand.

I called MCN today and they can't tell me where I can buy it. Tried to get a subscription a few months ago and the website didn't work.

Anyway, they have a dual-sport showdown that looks interesting.

I believe Motorcycle Consumer News is subscription-only.

I've got a pdf from the Oct issue dualsport comparo as well as Editor Dave Searle's comments. Send me a pm with your email and I'll get a copy to you.

Alfred, it was great to meet you today and go for "lunch". Now that's my kinda lunch! I've never been a big fan of beemers, much less old ones but yours handled rather nicely. I could definitely see that thing going long distance.

There I was minding my own business. I had myself convinced I didn’t need another bike. Well I was wrong.

Julio, it was nice meeting you, and that way fun scooter. Start looking for a beater DR or XT for me. If you plan another DS ride that is big bike friendly get back to me.

Didn't hear back from you but I guess that DR didn't work out for you? I'll keep my eyes open for you. I think you could do some of the rides we did on your bike.

WEEHAWKEN, N.J. (1010 WINS) -- George Clooney and his companion were injured on Friday when their motorcycle collided with a car on a narrow road across the Hudson River from New York City.

Clooney suffered a broken rib and scrapes while his passenger, Sarah Larson, broke her foot in the 3:30 p.m. collision. The two were treated at Palisades Medical Center in North Bergen and released, Clooney's spokesman, Stan Rosenfield, said.
``He's doing fine,'' Rosenfield said. ``He has a broken rib, it's very painful and it'll take a long time to heal.''

Clooney and Larson were traveling north on Boulevard East and sped up to pass on the right a 1999 Mazda Millenia that was preparing to make a right turn, said Weehawken police Sgt. Sean Kelly. Both were wearing helmets.

It wasn't known whether the Mazda's driver, whose identity was not immediately released, used a turn signal, Kelly said. The accident was under investigation.

``It's a he-said, she-said right now, but you can't pass on the right in Weehawken or anywhere in Jersey,'' Kelly said.
Rosenfield said the accident occurred when the vehicle signaled a left-hand turn, but turned right and struck Clooney's motorcycle.

``The car signaled left. George was riding to the right. The driver decided to make an abrupt right turn and clipped George,'' Rosenfield said.

The 46-year-old actor was in the New York area to film the dark comedy ``Burn After Reading,'' co-starring Brad Pitt, John Malkovich and Frances McDormand.

Clooney's recovery shouldn't interrupt the production's schedule, Rosenfield said.

Clooney's latest film, ``Michael Clayton,'' will be released next month. He and Larson have been spotted together at several film festivals and movie premieres in recent weeks.

Yes! What a cool thread! I might not have a lot of free time (depending on when he gets here) but DR Rock has a nice city loop he does sometimes. Maybe we can add Indian Larry's, the Statue of Liberty and then up to Orange County Choppers (places he wants to see).

Of course, if it happens to be Tuesday...

I would love to escort Chanderjeet around. It is hard for me to take off during the week. But depending on when I will see. The good thing about my job is I am off at 3pm so I can always meet up with you guys. I wonder if he realizes how far OCC is from the city. He would be better off visiting it if he is heading points north or north east from the city. It is an hour to hour and a half ride outside the city.
As far as Indian Larry's I have never been there, is there anything to see? I will probably be in Williamsburg later do I can check it out.
