    I looked back and most of my pic links are dead since I let my smugmug lapse. Oh well. Here's one that's live, hosted on a work server at a job I left 6 years ago (!), though that bike is long gone.

    That's an odd looking Dual-Sport.

    I was at the main crossing in my truck a few months ago and a V-star came through two-up!

    And sadly that little creek crossing is gone. The road is still a good one though.

    I"m headed to the Dakota's early June '12'. The trip would last 15 to 20 days.
    Trailer to Vermillion, SD. End up at the Theo. Roosevelt Nat'l Park. I have several
    specific things to do on the trip, The rest would be freelancing.
    Motels/Cabins are at premium out there due to the gas/oil business.
    So I've got to get with it !!
    Anyone interested, give me a jingle.

    Sorry, a senior moment--this trip will be oriented towards dirt/gravel/2 track.

    Beautiful bike, congratulations! You are going to have some fun on that. Better kick it over once just to get it over with. :D

    Installed some homemade led driving lights (to cheap to buy Denali's). Gutted some old lights I had and put in 9w led MR16's. Keeps the watts freed up for the heated jacket and hopefully reduces the chance of cars pulling out in front of me.

    Wow Bob. That bike looks good on you. Makes you look 30 years younger.

    30oz MSR fuel bottle, almost 1/2 gal of extra fuel if you do one on both sides. 6.5" sweetcheeks from the KLX fits this bike also.

    Ok, I'm intrigued. What size Sweet Cheeks would I need for my 2002 KLR with a stock seat? I can't swing a new seat this year!
