Got a new bike that actually runs!
Its the craziest thing, I get on the red and silver bike parked next to the vulcan in the garage, turn the key and push a button and VROOM! it fires right up!
Thursday I was making my one of my usual twice weekly trips to the stealership in town to trade even more cash for new parts for basketcase. While the kid behind the counter was looking around for parts they failed to order yet again I was over at the connie dripping drool all over the shiny new paint. Then I noticed a KLR 650 tucked into a corner. It was the last 07 model they had since the 08 updated model has come out. A bottom dollar was agreed upon and I loaded it up and brought it home. Sure its ugly but its dependable. Those bikes have traveled all over the world. And just today my purchase of a bike with nobbies was verified when I had to hit the ditch due to a house being moved down the road. Had I been on the vn I would have had to turn around and go sit in someones driveway while the house cruised by.
So the vn sits just waiting for further carb work. I just havent been able to find the time since Im enjoying the new toy!
