Surely there is a compromise? Couldn't you just get her a sports car or something?

It is a 2008 KLR650 Blue in color
9K miles
Schnitz racing 685 big bore kit

I wanted to give the locals first avail...

I will also give you my wife's phone and email address if you would like to conduct business. Venting..... no way. We talk later.

If he gets in on some of these local tags, he might want to keep the gun and just get on the bike!!!

arden, here's a better solution. i'll buy them for $1 each, store them in the shed, keep the battery charged, crank it from time to time. and promise , no riding. you can come get em whenever you have time.
i went thru this with old hotrods and a pretty young wife. she hated all the toys i had built with my own hands. sold em one by one, bought silk dresses and fancy hairdo's, 2 kids ,3 houses, and her 3 new cars... she now is married to some other guy named jeff, in south florida.
the cars would easily be worth $300,000,,if i still had em :<((((
now , wanna sell?

That is quite the dilemma. I feel your pain. I have been thinking of selling the KLR to make room for other toys and hobbys. Does anyone have interest in a 2002 KLR with 19K on the odo. It has a Corbin seat, aluminum luggage, and a few other farkles.

Arden, with the engine upgrade and farkles I think $7-8 k is a good starting point for resale... Let me know if you need a couch to sleep on. I have the keys to the new unofficial ADV tech day hangout /shop. 2,000 sq. ft. heat, a/c, office space, countertops, 1/2 bath.



As for any of you other FF's your welcome to borrow some tech space, just bring some beer to share.

There are about 20 more pallets out back, I can make a second / third "work table" in about 30 seconds. You will need to supply a flat surface for the centerstand... Let me know when the parts arrive.

Jason is chomping to get his sprockets and chain on as well.

PS You rode past me at the Blue Moon Cafe today. I woulda given you "the salute" had you noticed me.

Arden, sorry to hear about your situation, but I've been divorced for over 12 years now, so I don't feel qualified to offer advice. AS Jeff told me Friday night, you can tell I'm divorced cause I got a boat, a truck, a 4-wheeler AND a motorcycle!! I hope you can find a solution that is agreeable to both parties!

I actually drove the truck to work since I was running late, then my daughter called sick from school so I went and took her home and then jumped on the bike for the return trip. I was watching them crazy cage drivers on Jackson street!!!

Backwoods, I saw you yesterday morning when I was turning onto Commerce Park; you were hemmed up in the traffic snake on Jackson Ave. Noticed those new knobby tires.... then I did not sleep last night filled with the desire to go riding (it's all your fault). My wife obviously felt my angst because she woke at 3:00 am to tell me that she could not sleep because I had not sold the bike.
