    Must of been real FUN riding on those two sections between the boards where it looked like you had maybe 2 tire widths to play with. Sheesh! Thanks for sharing.

    Hi Walter,

    Looks like the Montana addresses a few of the Zumo shortcomings. Haven't been able to confirm whether the Montana touchscreen works with gloves. Do you happen to know?

    Cheers

    what a report - I spend the last few days in reading it and did basically nothing else. Fantastic pics, great writing and plenty of info. Excellent.

    Keep on riding & writing

    Well well, over the last several days I read this whole report again from page 1. Was thinking back to what I had done about 3 years ago when buying an '07 Bandit 1250S. Sold my '00 KLR650 I had bought in '99. Missed it so much I bought it back as the guy was wanting to buy an 883 Sportster. That bike will not be sold again. I tried a DR650 and DRZ400Se but they were just not the KLR. ;-(
    Thanks again for this increatable report and great pictures. Now waiting on your DVD to be finished and shipped. Have recieved confirmation of pay. ;-)
