Depends on how moving goes...

And I have the 2.2 gallon tank back on the KLR...

Might put the 13t front sprocket on it...

But I really want to convince someone to let me ride their 350 or 250 for a few minutes...

(I really want a 09 KLX250S)

WB, I'll let you try out my DR350, no problem. I know getting one of them is in the back of your mind, once you sell your KL600. One thing to be aware of, which I've read but have no personal knowledge of, is that the '98 & '99 'S' (street) models got the better suspension of the off-road model. Mine is a '98 DR350SE.

No worries. From what I recall you stating regarding the last "mud" ride, you managed just fine with the help of your cojones.

How much crazy/ pavement is going to be around? I'd trailer my bike out to the meet-up... parking?

New to the forum but I'd love to kick the dust off the tires and get the spring rolling!

From the meet-up location it looks to be about 20 miles on pavement to dirt. Map it from the meet-up Starbucks along Hwy 30 to Rocky Point Rd and up to Dixie Mt Rd. I don't know about off-loading a bike and leaving a rig & trailor at this parking lot. You can off-load at my house, just over a mile from the meet-up location. PM me if you want to do that.

Tentative IN. Schooner Creek is loading into the Boat Show this weekend. I really hope they don't need my help Sunday. I just swapped the dirt wheels for the SM wheels last weekend. Guess I'll get practice setting the Husqvarna back to dirt mode. I look forward to the ride.

Very good! You know what you need to do now ... Of course, even if a purchase happened today, you wouldn't be ready by noon on Sunday -- as undoubtedly you'd be doing a full tear-down ...

Does your employer know you'll be on CL all day today?
