I don't know if I explained that well enough. If I shift and am at 6,000RPM it does not really take off, but one I hit 7,000RPM it goes. This becomes and issue on the highway when I shift to 6th gear I just hand out about 56 MPH. I should have enough left to reach 70 MPH but the RPM's won't get up to 7k where it really kicks in and takes off.
Get the supertanker put on yet? ;)

Yup she's a cheesehead. Hometown of Dodgeville.
We might do 1 night in a fantasy suite. Maybe get a cabin 1 night.
Otherwise we're in a tent.

Sorry TheBigLebowski. It's a beautiful bike. Perfect 2 up adventure machine.

Sorry Tpar. Nice quad.

All y'all are invited to the wedding. August 5th. Dodgeville Wisconsin. Honeymoon at the central rally all week.
No worries.......it's all good.

If you really feel bad, sell my KLR so I can go buy that KLX and maybe I can post videos like Landon

Picked up a 09 R1200GSA, filled the tank and the computer said it had 435 mile range, love it

It came with the BMW vario side cases, I am selling them and the mounts, retail over $1000, asking price $550

I'm planning Motosupreme Friday and Redbird Saturday if I can get all my school work done far enough ahead.

Some people try to turn back their odometers.
Not me! I want people to know "why" I look this way.
I've traveled a long way and some of the roads weren't paved.
