    I hope she likes it and makes her feel welcome.

    P.S. the mini me dog is the first dog he pissed off , real photo would be too scary for Alex.

    Right click photo on photobucket, "Copy image location". Then when posting, hit the yellow "insert image" icon, paste, and post.

    Yay! Glad you got Patty! Poor Janis.....:cry
    Hopefully Spirit will be up and running soon too.
    Between you, Jim and I the KLR is not getting a good rep! All three of us were having problems, LOL.
    Still, wouldn't want any other bike. :)
    At least not yet! :lol3
