    Lol, I wish you would have come by!

    I'm sorry if I planted that seed! I bet you'll be happy with your new bike though! It shore is purty and I bet it's got lots of power!

    I love it so far... just hate having to refarkle after having my other two bikes setup the way I liked. I will very glad to past break in procedures to really feel the power.... staying below 5K for first 300 miles. Half way there already.

    That's right! Sometimes I feel like the guys who put several thousand dollars worth of rims on an old beat up car!

    That's only when you add stuff to a KLR.

    EDIT: Excuse me while I contemplate a big bore kit for my 6 year old DRZ...

    Well I'm bikeless at the moment. Sent the Tenere's brain in for a little electroshock therapy. Hopefully it will return with no memory of the horrors it has undergone.

    See the upper left there, the big gaping hole? That's the empty cranial cavity.

    Fingers crossed that the good folks at AF1 in Texas know what they're doing.

    Did you at least try fixing it yourself before you sent it?

    Vortex rearsets, foot pegs are like little razor blades. Boot not slipping off peg.

    Decals for the soon to be painted bodywork. Have to represent:D

    The front forks are at the suspension shop right now being upgraded to a Ohlins 30 mil kit. They may be back along with a new JRi rear race shock as early as next week. This bike is going to be a powerhouse racebike. Big HP with superior handling.
