Great Pics

Cuttle (we have never met so I don't feel it proper yet to address you as Silke)

LOVE the pics that both you and knybanjo post in these reports. I posted on his thread that it really makes me want to get my work schedule worked out so i can put some miles on my "recently new to me KLR".

I live at the foot of 421 in Wilkesboro, so I really want to start taking advantage of some of the roads you guys are riding.

Keep the pics coming.

Great camera work.

The grasshopper pic is awesome.

GREAT pics

Cuttle........(i don't feel at liberty to address you as Silke as we have yet to meet)

LOVE the pics you post in this thread.

You and Kenny keep my mouth watering to get out on some of these roads. Got to get my work schedule to back off some.

I live at the foot of 421 in Wilkesboro, so the BRP is about 15 minutes from my drive. Need some serious miles on my "recently new to me 99 KLR" (only 5k on the clock........got some catching up to do)

the grasshopper pic is awesome.

keep'em coming.

You've really outdone yourself with this last batch of pictures.

Very nice.

Thank you - hard to mess up pictures when it's so beautiful.

Days like this just don't come around that often: fall colors at the peak, temps in the 70th, blue sky and no traffic at all! The perfect ending to the summer - it's supposed to snow next week....

I would go with either this one: (If the suspension upgrades are an aftermarket rear shock, stiffer fork springs and emulators).

A 2011 - 2200 miles, $5400 - suspension upgrades, pumper carbs, performance exhaust, owned by a young guy in the USGC. Father selling. Can't ride now. (Arden, NC)

Or this one:

A 2006 - 10000 miles, $3100 - Lots of upgrades, rear rack, skid plate, FMF exhaust, jetted, aftermarket tank, spitfire windshield. (Virginia)

FWIW, I've owned three of them. The standard, "does it look like it's been beat to shit?" rules apply.

Got the last one. Didn't look as good as the pic, but I think I can clean her up.
