    Nice shot of Al, frustrated, with his rear wheel off the bike. Looking forward to making my own video in about 6 months.

    haha, nice catch Rob! My center stand was fucked up so I just laid the bike on it's side to pull the rear wheel and fix a flat.. It was pretty quick work actually but plenty of people stopped and took pictures of me and my beached whale of a bike.. I think a few of the paparazzi bastards actually offered to help if needed though.. :evil

    I'm looking into options to make the bike a bit more off road worthy for 2013.. Mostly taking off some weight but while not spending a ton of money to shave a few ounces.. I like the Pelican cases a lot but I'm contemplating soft cases or going ultra-lite and just using a waterproof duffel strapped to the rear rack along with my "tank" bag and a hydration pack with a little storage capacity. Plan for a discussion about custom soft cases at the pre-New Years Eve camp-n-ride...

    Have you considered the DR? Not that I'm letting mine go....

    The farkle is wonderfully cheap and plentiful.

    I think the DR is an excellent bike but I'm thinking lighter. Like the cheap aspect though...much like the KLR....that I sold...sniff:cry
    Really interested it trying the KTM. More power, less weight. Sure fired way to get my ass in a sling:rofl
