    The KLR is in the wind and this is its replacement. Actually a step up in power and its much nicer on pavement.

    The 300's are a great Scoot!

    Trading in my Tenere 700 for a Z900 on Tuesday. As much as I loved the T7, I realized I lived too far from dirt and can't get away as much as I like. This will be perfect for the type of riding I can actually do every day.

    Yes like that but white with black pinstripes, book rack, passenger seat pad, and several other upgrades the bike in that picture does not have. You are showing JM 344, mine is JM709. Several have been built since the pic. you posted.Our son builds custom guitar amps at Carr amplifiers in NC. 50's style cases with the latest electronic innards. Sort of like a Janus Moto, built in a small shop with quality parts and people that have a love for what they do. Yes, they both price the creations on the higher end, but you can walk into the business, shake the owner's hand, and have lunch with the people that built your dream.

    Bobby J's is one of the oldest motorsport dealers in the region. And somehow, I've never even set foot in the place, even having lived in NM for 38 years. How was your buying experience there?

    Just brought this beauty home with me. I’ve wanted to try one on for a while now. I’m not the least bit disappointed! It’s amazing what 100 less pounds ( than the GS) will do for performance. DC655813-8F78-413D-A6F9-0F8465FB3680.jpeg Grinning from ear to ear!

    And it looks like there's enough travel to suit some of the rougher roads if you're in the U.S., known for some crap roads.

    Picked up this ‘06 Ninja 650r less than a month ago. I’m well under a grand into it, including titling, registration, and insurance!

    3800 miles on the ODO, fires up with no hassle (unlike my cranky ‘78 BMW), and just plain works.

    Maybe one day I’ll get new fairings for it, but for now I ain’t bothered.

    I enjoyed doing business with them very much. They let me test drive the bike prior to purchase, didn't abuse me too badly on my trade in and generally made it a pleasure to do business there. It's nice to find a business that actually appreciates their customers anymore. I would recommend them to anyone.

    After 25 years of BMW, I went for a Duc. The test ride from a year ago kept nagging .
