    I'm looking for a Klr radiator fan. Apparently, mine took a poop at some time in its garage-sitting time.
    First generation since I'm not sure if the 2nd generation will work properly.

    I'm sitting here smiling, remembering the fan Woodsman rigged on his KLX. He salvaged a fan from an old computer power supply, and zip-tied it to the radiator. I own the bike now, and that fan is still giving good service almost a decade later. Given that you're riding a KLR, well - it IS KLR tech! :rofl

    I have a handful of spare good quality 12V computer fans in 120mm and 140mm sizes...

    Who has a DCT Africa Twin ?

    I am thinking about getting one but want to actually ride one for a while before I decide. If you want to go for a ride and swap bikes for about 1/2 hour I would appreciate it. Yes you can ride my bike (Hyperstrada or Multistrada) and keep an eye on me. :lol3 I just want to do one of the front range canyons and don't need to take it on the dirt. I figure if I can ride a DCT then I can decide if that is the way I want to go.

    If you have a very well setup one you are going to sell some time in the future I might be interested. :dunno

    I can do a weekend (not this Saturday) or an evening after 6:00PM from Boulder.

    Marc I upgraded to a DCT AT back in March from my old Transalp. 6500 miles so far and loving it. You are welcome to try mine, but timing might be an issue. I leave Saturday to go work the Tour of Utah bike race and then working the CO Classic when I get back, so it would have to be an evening this week or wait for a couple weeks. I have to change tires, oil and a few other fixes before I go so may not be rideable everyday. I'm here in Boulder. PM me.

    I'm currently on the hunt for a couple of things. Not in a rush, looking for the right deal. PM if you're a seller.

    - A high quality full suspension mountain bike for a 5'9" female rider. 29er or preferably 27.5.

    - A large frame (58cm - 60cm) road bike. I'm currently considering gravel, adventure, and various touring bikes... like a Salsa Vaya, Surley LHT, or Kona Sutra.

    - A low mileage/hour, well maintained, 2012 or newer WR450F, preferably already plated in Colorado. Ideal if already set up for a 190lb rider.

    Been running a sidewinder computer case fan for at least 8 years on my RFS KTM. Holds up great, even the pressure washer has not killed it. For like $10, I ordered two but the spare has sat on the shelf for years.

    Looking for a lowered or low seated dirt bike for my wife. She already knows how to ride a motorbike and is a decent mountain biker and is now showing interest in learning to ride a plated dirt bike. She is only 5' 3" and wants to have both feet on the ground to start. Let me know if you have something. We recently sold her BMW F650GS that was lowered and have money burning a hole in my pocket.

    Anybody have a Honda ATC 3-wheeler to part with? Grew up with one on the farm in WI, would like another to take back there.

    Also interested in old ('74-'78) XL125 bikes/parts and would consider a cheap XR200 parts bike (or a good engine from same).
