    I was just yanking your chain as well. Nobody is more aware of the KLR's short comings than a KLR owner. I'd love to have a DR 650 as well & if money wasn't so tight I'd be interested in the one you're looking to sell. :freaky

    The other DR is gone, to a good home. crpntr brought a friend up soon after I posted the pic and took it back to the 'boro.

    As for the Japanese 650 DS bikes, its really just pick a color. I have so much Suzuki stuff laying around it was an easy decision to look for a DR. If an XR-L popped up, I'd be riding red. Not a fan of the new KLR' s, and the first gen KLR suspension is ..... well ..... sad. And I wanted an air cooled motor and screw adjust valves.

    I'm very close to having the DR's stock carb sorted, and really looking forward to putting bunches of LBL dirt and gravel behind me.

    And I'm with graygoat - rain rain go away.....

    I'm looking forward to riding some place other than LBL but, if you head out there please drop me a line first. The last trail of the LBL weekend, where Matt went down HARD & I ALMOST went face first into a foot deep puddle......... That trail looks to be very promising. :D

    Hey DR.Z - - - - -

    I've got a Labor Day ride lining up for around Tellico.

    Think you and your homies could drive an extra 30 minutes to Tellico and we can do a massive ride there?

    Wonder how many days you all could ride?

    What ya thinkin'?

    Also - - - the TKO is in August. You coming up for that?

    Labor Day ride in Tellico? :ear

    Where are y'all staying?

    I could drive up Friday... ride Saturday & Sunday... drive back on Monday.

    A few of the Wankers are riding the TKO event. I'd like to go but I'll probably be picking up my XRR in Tallahassee.

    Hey guys. July 28th were doing another ever so popular Dirt Devil Poker Run out in Hickman.

    If ya pre register its $10. if you don't its $15. The winner gets the whole pot, so the more people who show up, the more money there is to win. :clap

    Here is the link to the facebook page with more info:

    Did I read correctly that pre-registration is not ready yet? I will be there on Godzilla & probably say goodbye to her front D-606 by the time I lay down my four aces. :deal

    I wasn't going to clutter this thread up with any more links to my son & I's ride at Turkey Bay but, I think this particular video is maybe the best one I've ever put together.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vuCiGuIXlaE

    It has a bit of everything in it. It has little (the oposite of "BIG" air) air. It has a warp speed (at least for me) section. It has my son on the Raptor. Toward the end It has me doing a little slip & save. It has a small log crossing, taken at an angle & best of all it has an UGLY musical number performed by F***EN SLAYER!!!!!
