    you may be surprised just how recognizable I can be...What if it was a Gen 2 KLR??? just joking I would never....but I will put a "its me mark" sticker on just for you...
    I did see an ADV sticker on a green jeep the other day. I pondered who it might be, then noticed a very handsome distinguished gentleman in the rearview...thought it might be sean connery for a moment...lol

    Don't get the Sean Connery comparison very often. However... I can't sit at a Bar without the Ernest Hemingway, "Babes" Swarming around! :beer

    85 on freeway (the highest I've seen it) while passing with buzzy engine, ~74 on dirt (it could go more but i guess i am getting older hopefully wiser :-)) my present gearing is 15-44. Aaron (u met him) he's got the same set up like mine (440 kit, Keihin 39mm, stage 2 cam and the mighty Yoshi system), he can push it as much as 82 mph on dirt (his gearing is 15-41). He did that on the last R.Run ride day3 on the Power Line Rd.
