Ridge, in the thread you never mentioned the KLR as a potential bike after naming several other options?

It's better to have loved and lost than live with the psycho for life!

Negative. My favorite drink at Starbucks is a medium Americano. $1.89 half espresso, half hot water. Tastes yummy if you like black coffee. Way better than that Pikes place poo they are serving now.
