    I'll try and get by there tomorrow after school. I'll ask Carl about the PO if I see him.

    The above is subject to change if I forget:lol3.

    Thanks guys. No biggie. My buddy will probably forget about it in a few days anyway.

    It looks pretty clean. There is evidence of one zero speed drop on the left hand side.

    On another note, Village Cycle can suck my left nut. I walked around, looked under, poked, and prodded that bike for at least 5 minutes and not one person acknowledged my presence. They seem to be getting out of the motorcycle business judging from the quad to bike ratio. I wouldn't piss on them if they were on fire. If ever a shop deserved to go under it's them.

    i bought a bike from them through the parts guy once. Their sales people have always be crap. if I go in there I go strait to Patric in parts. I deal with no one else up there unless it's Carl's wife,, she's always nice, Carl is always hit or miss.

    It's all good:D. The bike really does look pretty clean for a 12 year old ride. A little rub here, a little speck of corrosion there, but all in all, really nice.

    Sorry about that little rant earlier. Every time I go in that place I come out mad:boid:pain:fight:splat:2guns:war. The easy solution is not to go in there any more:deal.

    I've never had a good experience there either, but I very frequently leave dealers mad. :lol3

    That's always been my philosophy. I think I've been there 3x in the last 15 years. 2 were to have tires mounted. The other was to help some dude who lived across the street pick up his new bike to learn on....:deal

    Oddly enough, that's the only time I've ever left there happy:lol3. Even then I pretty much walked in and said "I have $6000 cash in this envelope here and I want to buy that Vstrom over there, send Carl out now or I'm walking out the door."

    well what does it take to Kill a 660 Raptor? one little thing, this.

    that was in the oil pump. and from the looks of the internals of the oil pump that's not the first piece to get in there.

    now I just have to figure out how that got past the screen filter in the bottom of the motor.

    I guess it's time I go ahead and introduce myself.... My name is Brad and I am buying Backwoods' KLR. Wow, that felt strangely like an introduction at one of those self help meetings... Anyway, I'm 32 and live in Brandon. It's been 10 years since I owned a bike and I'm new to adventure riding. I had a Jeep for a while which quickly turned into a trail rig, so when I was looking for a commuter bike it was only natural to gravitate toward this genre of dual sport riding. I can tell I'm already going to be hooked. I look forward to riding with you guys soon.

    You were supposed to wait until after you took possession of the KLR so these clowns wouldn't say bad things about me or the bike!! :lol3

    Welcome to ADV!! :clap
