    I have 72,16xx miles on my 03 ST1300 with 1 warranty issue. It handles like a big CBR, 45 mpg lifetime avg, zero maintenance. Every once in a while I think I ought to sell it but then I get on it & that smooth V4 makes me recant. For long rides, an Airhawk is your friend. No chicken strips on this bird... :D

    :nod......I think he's motivated.....that's a great list of accessories on a low mileage bike......he started at $7900 6 weeks ago....

    Roadwarriors......just sold the K1200RS in August.....low miles and nicely farkled.....but it earned me my first speeding ticket in the past 35 years.....and you can only ride one bike at a time......so move along little doggie.....I expect to run the GS in road mode for now......

    That Copper Canyon route can be easily trimmed to something like this: http://goo.gl/maps/3gxUB

    The initial route was more of a friends and family tour for me.....:wink:

    It appears that guy will trade anything for that POS KTM, just saying. I think Kev would be better off putting 3000 dollars into his suspension!:huh

    DieselCruiserHead gave me the bro discount, so I just swapped bikes, I'm not spending any cash on the switch, much less $3k on suspension.

    My impression riding for the day on the Fano Cherry Creek Special Loop, is that it's faster than my BRP, rides lighter than the XR400, and the suspension is reminiscent of back-country powder snowboarding. That being said, this isn't a stock bike. lots of performance mods by and among knowledgeable peeps. That being said, if I was choosing a bike for the 5 deserts tour that i did with Trackhead, I'd take the BRP without a second thought. I don't get the luxury to kill the big rides as often as days rides. Day rides... that's kinda funny to say, as a typical day ride for the hardcores on this site is like riding all week for the average rider I'd guess (at least the guys at my office that ride).......

    Hick! What do you think about boken kneecaps?! That's not a threat, on the super tour we did a month ago i re-broke my kneecap. The first time was skating a vert ramp a couple decades ago, and apparently it healed, but not solid enough to withstand a 30 mph collision with BRP handlebars, cuz its in 2 pieces again. It works fine, doesn't bug me a bit unless you press on it. I can ride, hike, run, etc w no issue. I've got that high deductable insurance thing, so figured i'd ask (and warn those who ride!) it's been set it and forget it, but i'm thinking just forget it, just don't kneel down on that one.:ear

    I had to do a little Dr. Googling because I AM A FUCKING BABY DOCTOR, NOT AN OLD MAN DOCTOR!! :deal

    Anyway, since you have full range of motion, i.e., were able to ride away from the BRP incident, I have to assume without the luxury of an Xray, that your patella, if fractured, is stable. In the case of a stable patella fracture, rest and immobilization are the recommendations - both of which I am certain you adhered to. :lol3

    If you have lost some function or range of motion, it's probably worth an Xray to make sure it is a stable fracture.

    Your welcome, that will be $625.00....or a night crashing on your couch.

    I know that guy Brian and the bike. I've ridden with hiim a few times - good dude, good bike, it has a BAGT (gas tank). I think he's moving away from the area soon.

    I think pluric is buying.......both of them.......he's going ORANGE......heard that the S10 is giving way to an 1190.......:deal

    Kev.....knee brace or sleeve....to keep that cap from drifting and let it mend.....you don't want inflammation, arthritis and a TKA in your future.....

    Kev-ster, if it's an annual deductible, you could save all your injuries from 2011 and 2012 :muutt, and then visit a buttload of old man doctors in early 2013.

    BTW, any old man doctors out there, who like to ride tight-n-twisties? Harcus can strap the old man patches and splints to his 5-hunny luggage racks. Young, female old man doctors will be considered. :evil

    I liked the Sellers comment "changed the oil every other day" WTF?

    That new 1190 looks to be a real asskicker. I just don't know if will be my ass.:dunno

    Rest/immobilization?! I just hiked Mt. Olympus w/o incident, it just doesn't like getting whacked.

    $625 doesn't get you out of your debt for shop rental and my headlight:bite



    ...and the $10k orange bike previously mentioned probably isn't as trick as the one i just swapped for. Thanks again DCH. Maybe i'll get to ride it again before the weather turns... maybe an afternoon at the B in the next few days.

    Took a huge wreck this afternoon w Fano and Kanook and Frog and a couple others, only 5 miles into the ride or so. Even rung my bell a little / definitely out of it for at least 20-30 minutes. Sore a **** on my whole left side and banged up. Had to bail a little early but Dustin and I still got in 60+ miles... Don't really remember the wreck or the 5-10 minutes after it at all. My thinking was part of it was maybe related to how I set up my handlebars (tall and as far forward as possible - definitely wrong for riding), part of it maybe related to the "squirrelly 08+ KTM" (basically a Fano quote). He got on it and wrecked in maybe 5 min when he rode it last week. I felt like I tuned a lot of that out but it (and worn ass tires, and maybe some other things) bit me in the ass today. Making me miss the old '02 already...

    Hmmm...Sorry to hear. I have seen a version of this movie. I am almost recovered. My problem was rooted in an excessively hi rate rear spring. One that I had left on from a certain "Utah tour". Crazy because it is a 30 minute job to change.

    As they say..this too shall pass. :D
