    Thanks WB, me too but it gets better.
    My better half and myself realized it's time to upgrade to a 3500 anyway. Our next phase has a 5th wheel toy hauler in it. Or a slide in and pull a trailer.

    With that I decided to get a little commuter car in the meantime and sell the truck.
    Picked up a diesel sipping VW and the previous owner claims he was getting 53mpg. That's 2 more than my KLR. Working on the first tank now and I'll see. Always wanted one so I'm stoked. Now, if only a diesel KLR were cheap!

    It's about 20mpg more than my C14 when I'm riding like I mean it. :D

    Small price to pay for that level of comfort and capability!

    Oddly enough, when I was shopping for something for the mountains, it was between the concours and the KLR. The concours looked to be a real pita to tie down on a trailer, not that I usually trailer but just to get it home.
    Plus I've got 2 road bikes in the garage, the knobbies sold me :)

    Trailer? I trailered my old KLR a few times since it wasn't something I'd want to ride between here and the mountains. The Concours doesn't have that problem. :D
