    Long gone and resold in Indiana someplace. Bought a Bandit 1250 and traded it for the Sprint :ricky I really wanted one of the VFR leftovers in Mason City you told me about, but he sold them from under me when I said I'd wire money within the hour for the one I wanted. :pissed Guy was a real prick over the phone.

    I might have 3 coming with me. Up in the air if I am riding or not with this cold I am recovering from. The other two's bikes are still down IIRC

    The guy seemed pretty decent to me in person. I really wanted the white VFR they had but went with a new 1200 GS instead.

    I was at Struthers Bros. in Des Moines last Friday with GraveHunter. They had a very nice used 2001 VFR in RED with the matching hard cases.

    Never did get to sit on it or look at it better because 2 guys were drooling over it. I didn't see any helmets so they most likely didn't try it out.

    Call and ask, maybe check it out this coming saturday!

    It sure is purty! :thumb

    GH and I watched them take that used F650 off the back of a truck. I guess he traded her in on something else.

    Thanks, but I like the Sprint more than the VFR and I can not afford to buy/trade bikes for a couple more seasons.

    That VFR gives me a hard-on but it is waaaaaay to rich for my blood.

    So we are on for this Saturday morning at 9am at Perkins in Cedar Rapids? I should be able to make that... Can't say for sure whether I'll ride right now but it could happen. I've got a date this weekend but I can save that for Saturday night :lol3

    Hey 30 Bones and MX Champ...Thanks to both of you for your kind offers to help me with putting new tires on my DRZ400. I might take you up on that offer at some point! In the meantime I've been doing too many business trips and haven't been around very much. I wish it would warm up so I could ride the BMW to the business meetings in western Iowa instead of a car. Boring. Thanks again.:wave

    Has anybody tried out the new KLR650s? I used to own a 2007 one. I saw one of the new 2009 KLRs this week on a business trip in western Iowa for $5,300. I like the modified look of them. How does the new version ride?

    A buddy of mine bought a new KLR, he said he’s invested in a large bottle of Loctite, the bike is painfully slow and not good for riding two-up, other than that he loves it.<o:p></o:p>

    Add a +1 to my potential showing.

    The governor might tag along if the weather is decent enough or if we don't take the bike to Burlington because she wants to ride snake alley.

    If you have never heard of it here is a linky:

    http://www.snakealley.com/

    I never even knew it existed.

    Also, 30 Bones Struthers has 2 Sprint ST's waiting for you!

    Very nice machines both with hard cases.
