    You might want a grate to keep out bugs and small dogs.

    Pretty sure Red Green would ride a KLR650. With a milk crate AND lots of duct tape on it.

    Just got my new Outback Motortek Center Stand. Lightweight, easy to use and nice quality powder coating.

    But damn, just fuck center-stand springs, I mean FUCK them...

    Maybe if you weren't such a _____ (just spent 5 min trying to type one in ascii, but ({.}) or anything similar doesn't do justice. ha)....but yeah, they're a bitch

    was it worth it ? looks legit, and prefer something that'll keep my bike upright more than leaned / kickstand.

    Yah, nice and light, stout, very good paint quality, easy to get up on stand, and NO WAY is that thing going to be bouncing around on trails unless you are doing a bunch of 10 foot jumps...

    Then the bike wouldn't match the PVC fittings!

    I did an "R" upgrade to my Caliper Cooler. I figured the "R" bikes were the ones behind the rear brake line melt down recall.

    Us "S" riders aren't as hard on the brakes. Well, the rear at least.

    Whoa, before you "R's" jump all over me let me just say that I admire the R model. Visually the R looks lighter than S model.
    Must be those long legs, "high heel" tires and that pulled up front fender. I'm even contemplating putting a high White
    fender on my bike to imply that I get down and dirty on occasion. And NO I don't camp.

    Oh, the new R Water Cooled Caliper Cool...ler.

    Nice work! Does double duty as a crash bar too.

    I'm holding out for the liquid nitrogen cooler. Maybe something similar to a auto chain oiler but drips onto the rear brake hose fitting.

    The other end of the equation not to overlook is peg height. A lot of the taller lads go with the PP tall seat, AND lower pegs to open up the cockpit a bit.
