Tomarrow might be the day for a new toy

Well after hanging out with stas tonight and chatting about the trips planned from nexted year, the issue came up as to maybe a dual sport might add more fun to the trips.

Tomarrow I am going to take a trip and maybe return home with this

go time traveler style and go back in time, fuck his grandma, then shoot forward in time and then fuck his mom. Then return back to present state and call him a the product of two incest whores and hes your son and show video of you plowing the both members of his family. .

Is that a new KLR? If so great bike but keep in mind the older model is more dirt oriented and even then at most it's 90/10. You can get a nice used one with farkles for 2500. Check out www.advrider.com. It's why I got the Husky.

You know the Germans, if you donīt join the party they come and get you.

Yep, that's the new KLR. The idea to get something that can be ridden to remote areas, not trailered down there. My understanding is that's where KLR and other 650 single cylinder DP bikes are best at.

Please correct me, if I'm wrong, but I thought the Husky was more for trail riding - like a large off-road bike, not a true DP one. Is this right?

There is a lot of different dual sports and all of them are a compromise. You have to decide how much dirt and what kinda of dirt you are going to be riding on. The KLR is good for packed dirt and fire roads but thats pretty much it in my opinion. I had one ( a 2002) and it was supper heavy, not geared right ( i was always between 2nd and third on trails), the suspension was pretty terrible, and every time i dropped it I broke something. And the new KLR is made to be even more street friendly. They reduced suspension travel plus look at that plastic. I say check out the Honda XR650R and XR650L, DR-z400, maybe older KLR. If you want to get a little more interesting the KTM's are pretty amazing or the new Husky, the 08 Te610E is fuel injected and will ride better on both street and dirt. For even more off road capability there is a TE510E.

Kinda on the heavy side, but everyone that has one says its remarkably competent off road and can handle highway in ways that thumpers could only dream of.


The mini-site has all kinds of cool adventure touring pics from different routes, like from Cairo to Capetown in Africa. Thats a long frickin' ride!
