    Remember: 'Pissed' in the UK means drunk.

    Looks like he's gone spare to me

    Like the stablemate but... I have a buddy coming from Australia and I don't want to be on the "good" bike. Also don't want to double up expense wise. We will do a trip Nebraska to Alaska return starting in another month.

    Thinking a Weestrom 1000 might be the answer. Already talked to a Nigerian scammer advertising a vstrom1000. Bastard. Thought he was in Missouri and wisely gave limited information and found a broken English reply in my spam. Nothing like the English lifted from a legitimate past advert.

    Anyway after deleting his/ her kind request to fill their google plus account I will keep looking.

    Anybody want a nice Bandit or have a Vstrom1000 for sale. Or, a KTM950 would be better but more pricey for a mostly parked stablemate.

    The 690 has Rally Raid long range tanks and an Omega fairing - which is locally produced in South Africa - really nice toy....

    Ditto. I have a 1250S Bandit,2011 530,DR650 set up for dirt travel.

    But my 200XCW set up for local tight big granite singletrack is the biggest grin inducer of the pack on any given day.

    If there's a choice on a mostly or all dirt ride,the 200 always begs and gets to go. Simply too much fun! 2 strokes rule!
