I'm still having issues with the fan on the KLR. So, count me in on the tech day.

Sounds like a plan. I was reading how to test the fan switch in my service for the ninja. Im sure the KLR switch is the same.

Can't blame a guy for going to the shooting range. Just make it an easy one!

Even with the folding stock it measures 31". Still too long for the panniers. Ill just have to stick to the XD .40 I guess. I might experiment with my beretta to see if I can use the KLR as the ultimate dove hunting rig. Just need to find a place to hunt and I will be set.

Although in reality I will be saving up for a Concours instead of further farkling the KLR.

Not sure if I will be getting anything that new...unless I sale the KLR. I will probably be getting an 01-05. Im about a year away though. I have some other things to take care of first, like buying a house.

OK, I'll see your Ninjette and raise you a KLR (again) (see the 36 hour rule).
