    2021 KLX300??
    Oh, my computer has had another heart attach. Font and colour have changed by themselves....:scratch
    I've been bashing the TTR around a bit more. I am hoping that I can address the rattles with new cam chain and guides that I've ordered. It's got 47k on it, so fair enough.
    If that fixes the rattles, then it's just the suspension that is letting the side down. It's got suspension, it's just that it's not very good. I could buy a new bike and still have to spend another grand on suspension for my fat arse. If I bought a new bike, I'd be worried about scratching it. And then the set up round about starts all over again.
    The marketeers have convinced us that trying to turn a soars ear into a silk purse isn't economic sense.
    For whom?

    Should've cut his grass before leaving home. It's just annoying to come home to work.
