See, that's the danger of having your bike be your username. Now you gotta change names and no one will recognize you.

Always choose something that won't change, like Gas Man. Yeah, Chris could change jobs and not work for the gas company, but he'll always have gas.......

For a change, I mean you only go around once so, gonna try a dual sport, I think.
I just drove out to Novi to look at an 07 KLR, Guy was firm on his asking price, would not budge so, I took a pass. The bike had 13K on it and had been down atleast once(broken clutch lever......I would of got a new one myself) and oil level was low, so I'll find something else.

By that logic, I could be gasman.
I'm keeping my SN tele, I did love that bike and was kinda sad to see it leave today. Oh well ......NEXT!

Mud - Bill should sit in the corner. But let him take his laptop so he can continue to check Craigslist for his next bike.

Very cool bike, one of the better lookin MCs I have ever seen. First impressions, gearbox was like butter. awesome sound and gearing is right on the money. A little light on the power, after just comming off 140 HP, it was quite a change, but I didn't mind. It could use another gear. seating position is very standard, I liked it.

So, I offered 8K OTD and I'll buy it right now, she bumped me a grand and I took a pass. Oh well, I'll keep looking.

I do know one thing, I hate going out to the garage and only seeing a 1975 DT250 that needs a carb that I can't find, damn I hate not having 2 wheels.

Try Honda East in Toledo. If I was in the market for a metric it'd be the only dealer I'd deal with.

It's funny you just posted that I was just on their site, but they are not a Triumph dealer.:(

Crap, I forgot that. But if you end up looking at Jap bikes they are the best dealer around I think. I'll even buy my parts from them and make the drive to Toledo to get them instead of dealing with the crappy local dealers.

Thruxtons are great bikes. The pappy of cafe racers. You'd love it.

So would I!

I really do like the bike, it is the essence of cool. There are a few and I mean a few used ones around but, the 2010 model is FI and I'm spoiled.
