I'm currently trying to convince my brother to get an FJR, are you saying they're not good dirt bikes?

I miss my KLR, sometimes.

Yeah.... It's not as tractor like as my KLR was. I've even dropped a tooth on the counter sprocket and it's just not low enough in 1st and now it's too short legged in 5th.

Got to get one of them there DRZ's or some such.

I had both the DRZ dirt and the SM. Great bikes, but I need something with longer legs. I rode the SM 300 miles one day, and wanted to shoot myself afterwards.

What about an NX650? Every ride one?

Nope, never.

Might want to add the DR 650 or XR650L to your list. Gives you a few more options.

Looks good!. I just finished doing my floors in my basement/garage. Turned out pretty sweet. Looks like the BMW showroom. It was a lot of prep work. That was the hardest part. I etched the floor twice with muriatic acid.

I used this http://www.floorchips.com/

They have a ebay store and the prices are MUCH less. I'll take some pics when I get a chance.

I've been very indescisive regarding floor covering. Initially, I was going to race deck the floor. Then, I got their quote.

Next, was the epoxy flooring. Then, I get some negative reports from shops that have it, and complain of the surfaces durability.

Now, I think I'm just going to go with a clear sealant. It's super cheap, easy to touch up as needed, and I can put race deck down in a couple of years if I want to, and not feel bad about covering an expensive product.

This job has been going on way too long now. I need to get it finished.
