    Thanks Moto!

    I actually talked to him yesterday but the bike has been in a crash and needs some repair. Guess those pictures are old. Not trying to deal with a rebuild at this point.

    I sent you a PM. The kids have a long weekend from school next week and a road trip could be in the works to get it much closer.:deal

    Sorry Steve

    Looks like mine is going bye tomorrow. Tell the truth I was hoping to work out a road trip to get it in your area. I haven't ridden in Virginia (The pretty area not the metro area.)

    Good luck on finding a bike. If anything changes with my sale I will let you know.

    Thanks again Moto, I borrowed a trailer over the weekend and I am ready to go. It seems like a nice bike, its a little more than I want to spend but maybe he will come down a bit. I am going to email him. I am not too far I think so I should be able to swing by in about 45 mins or so. Thanks again!


    Any tips on strapping a KLR to a trailer would be much appreciated though. :D

    Finally got one! Thanks to Gary in Roanoke for the great bike. Now, I need to learn how to ride and maintain it.

    Congrats on the nice bike. Glad it worked out for you..


    The maintaince is easier than the riding. :deal


    See if you can get a MSF course if you haven't done any riding. You will learn a lot and be much safer. If you can't get a course there are several good books out there.

    As far as maintainence goes.....I agree....loctite is your friend. The blue kind.

    Thanks Guys!

    I would love to ride today, but I need to hit the DMV this week first. I will have to register/insure and get my learners....

    Next weekend Moto! :ricky
