    Sweet. Let's see what the weather does Thurs/Fri. He said it had rained the day before those vids were taken.



    Edit: He said it rained an inch 2 days before. Lots of dry spots though.

    What do you tell people (nonriders) when they ask you what kind of bike you ride? I always freeze and just tell them "KLR" or v-strom as if they know what the heck that is. Sometimes I feel the only thing the general public knows about motorcycles is the word "Harley" or "crotch rocket" lol
    Also, how dangerous they are as my mom likes to remind me

    I cover the waterfront in Norfolk Virginia.
    I just tell them what it is. Most seem to be simply curious and truly interested.

    there are probably a few out there that are just setting you up to say something silly ,but those types are easily spotted:wink:

    When they ask what a Vstrom is I tell them it's a sport bike with a lift kit. They usually just kind of nod and we move on.

    I don't post on here very often, but anyone interested in buying a 2008 CBR600RR? I'm moving to Japan at the end of the summer, and plan on getting a local bike over there so I don't have to hassle with converting my Tiger 800 to japanese spec... I'll be putting my Triumph Tiger 800 up for sale in a month or so...

    Anyone in the market for a nice tank bag?

    I bought a used Wolfman Rainier thinking it was an Enduro. Seller didn't know either, he sent me pics and I assumed it was the right one.

    Anyhow, here's the link to it

    Mines used but in great shape. Let me know if anyone wants it, we can discuss price.

    DRZ can make it easy. I made it to Baltimore and back on my XT. No problem.

    Heck it could "make it" to CA if I had the time, I was implying they'll be on bigger (faster) bikes so me doing 65mph on 64 for hours would probably slow the group down haha.

    Bunch of wise guys...

    Bought it like 2 weeks ago. Loving it so far. Definitely could go coast to coast on that thing and Im highly considering it. If my move West becomes official that will be how that bike gets there.
