    supposed to last 250,000 miles. Drop one back in I'd say :deal

    I always wonder how much of that stuff is "snake oil" and how much is real, but how much can it hurt...

    I believe its an 09, super low miles. Nice looking rig that's for sure, must come with 100 get out of jail cards for me to test it though.

    No test ride for me, raining when I was there.

    It looks like it's haulin ass just standing there. Really clean looking...except that thing hangin off under the tail light looks like some kindof halloween mask on acid or something. Look at it again, do you see what I am saying? It would be pretty easy to lose that piece I am sure.

    I think I'd need more than 100 get out of jail free cards for that one.

    would be nice to have a reliable "network" of places like this scattered around the US linked with a reliable bike shipping method.

    you could have your bike shipped to a prime riding location, stored and ready for you. Take a weeks vacation hop a flight, ride for 5 or 6 days then fly home. It would help alleviate those tire eating time sucking cross country rides..

    be a wonderful evening for a ride....red sunset in blue sky background.....with white puffy clouds..

    after loggin a few miles in the rain last weekend...I looked out the window at the puddles and thought....not that bad... off to work we ride....lot cheaper to run than the jeep.....though sometimes I wonder...
    got a set of Pirelli Speed Demon tires for the Suzi last week...
    wife comment- were you expecting some tires? yes...tires are worn out on the Suzuki...

    then ordered a new set of T63s for the KLR...got them Wed.
    wife comment- why are more tires showing up here....tires worn out on KLR....

    nothing like going into the fall season on good rubber...

    rear T63 didn't seem to last as long..'bout 4k don't know if it was the Newfie trip or the 685 kit..

    Haha. I got similar wife comments moments ago... "What did you order from twisted throttle this time?" Lol

    My plan to drive north out of the rain was a fail. Poured all the way to lac megantic with fog and poor viz. found the first must have for the strom: road pegs and or a better higher seat. It was a long 300+ mile day and I'm feeling it already. My favorite part... Rt 3 border crossing had a drivethru garage. The cbp guy asked if i needed a coffee or to use the head. Fantastic service and a good 15 minute indoor break.

    On a sidenote, whats with quebecers? One passed me in an suv in grafton notch and i wasn't exactly holding up traffic if you know what i mean.

    I wish i took more pics but my phone died which caused me to take a 1hr detour sans gps. Powered tankbag will remedy this (thats in the next TT shipment i'll be getting hell for)
