And to reach the perfection I've sold the black one to buy another colour, so Pluric can't say rude things about the colour...

I know because I had an 08 one. They are great, just not big enough for the wife, the kitchen sink and the hair dryer.

And I had a white one

I was originally looking to plate a WR450F, or hoping for the XT660. When I found out the XT1200 was coming to the US, I jumped on board...no regrets!

Agree, no regrets, is a lovely bike. Perfect for a trip as I did in the Alps.
Here it is the chapter two. Hope you like it:

I think that's Yellowstone lake in the background. A day of many lakes and curves.

It's not the color. Singles are for girls.

Well, unless they bring it to the States then I'll reconsider.

(Who me jealous?)


(yes)

My shit is always clean. I don't mind getting it dirty, but it doesn't stay that way for long.
Just did 475 miles today. About 150 in the rain. Had the toothbrush out before the bag liners
were unpacked.

I do admit that VStream large screen is huge. I also have to say it was awful nice to hide
behind in the weather. Dead air and great for slabbing all day.

And at least you have experience fixing cracks in the front sub frame as well.

Kind of hard to see, but look at the light hole on the heads of the two metal indian art behind me.



Some asshole with a gun (and very good aim) decided to target practice.
Both had been shot.
