In High School I tried to apply at Victorias Secret in the Ontario Mall. I was told I couldnt have an app.

I think they were afraid I would tell her secrets.

Thats not the odd part. The odd part is when I come out of the room in 25 minutes sweating.

that you have 1 each from the big 4 Japanese companies...and your latest acquisition gives you 1 too many Yamaha's in the stable....I think you should rectify that situation by giving me the WR
Not gonna happen. I will be selling something soon though. Either the Magna or the Wee-Strom. Any takers?

ah, but wait. I had a YJ, the Wrangler with the square headlights. You'd have thought it was a low-rider by the lack of "jeep waves" I got until it was sitting on 35"s. Snobbery is everywhere.

I always wave even if I'm on the KTM. Might have been a new KLR owner, you know how that power can make you nervous about pulling a hand off the bars as you rocket down the road.

I DO have a set-up question for you. What tires did you end up running on yours, Rob? I've had the TeraFlex on my 525 for quite a while, with a Kenda TrakMaster up front. I have no idea what would work well on a 640.

I wave at every motorcyclist who is smart enough to wear a helmet.
I figure if they are dumb enough to skip the lid then they probably have open pipes, and I sure don't want to wave at somebody with open pipes...

Shit.

I rode for about an hour tonight without my lid doing some slow trails and exploring around. I even hit 55 once for about a mile. I felt like a total rebel.
