I really hate to one up all this off road stuff, but I had left my Franklin Planner at Bear Lake
so I rode the Tenere up here to get it tonight. The bugs were really bad. So bad that they
make these sunken bikes, stuck in mud, water in the oil issues seem trivial.

For you techy i-pad generation that have to text than actually talk to someone may wonder
WTF is a Franklin Planner??? It has pages and you turn them like a book. A real book.
Not that Kindle thing you rub your fingers on. For me it's like taking the sim card out of your
blackberry/i-phone/ and have a technical melt down. All the listing information is in it to make
appointments for showings. As well as my repair people contacts. Yes I do refuse to be drug
into the 21st century.

I have a WR250X I am probably going to sell or trade in too.

Any one try out a 350 EXC-F? I am thinking of that or plating a WR450F.
Well, I'm going to be looking at picking up a WR250X/R sometime in the medium (2-6 months) future, so kindly give yer fellow Utard inmates first crack at it! I just missed those two down in Hurricane ($2,800, about 1,000 miles each!!) I wish the ad had popped a week earlier than it did, I could've delayed the service/suspension upgrade on the ST1300.

I'm a little late to the party.

Here are my submissions:

1. KTM riders like it wet.
2. Now stay under there until you find my money.
3. Damn, now I have to shoot you.

I'd say:

Comes with a free pack of sheepskin prophylactics and some icy hot.

I figured you for more of a "Gosh, that certainly was unpleasant" sort of guy.

I was mostly referring to Pluric's Franklin Planner, not the KLR. But I guess it could happen either way.

I thought chicks dug the Franklins.....

They only know it by the "Benjamins". So close.



Fortunately the KLR makes up for the confusion.

Weren't those popular in the '70's?

I came across this in the basement. It is pretty funny. Perfect advice for anyone looking to be "cool".

I just forgot to mention you're not on a Yamaha.

The nice thing about BMW following automotive style drive train design, is that you get to talk about 2/3 of the bike just to get to the clutch. This little repair took between 50-60 hours and about $1700 in parts. No one has ever attempted a wheelie on her bike, this is just from ridding. There is no way I would try a wheelie on a BMW knowing what the consequences are.

This is what her R1100S looked like when I finally got the clutch out of it.

Okay, I have a small confession. When Steve owned it I tried to get the front end up
a few times. Yes there may have been some minor clutch use at that time.
