Green or Blue...

Reactions: 

the deal is on but I still have to see the bike "live" before deciding what colour... So far I am impressed with Helderberg Kawasaki. Thanks Jan and Graham... hope those broken bones heal soon bru... (Graham had a prang last weekend, breaking both clavicles.) I will make a commiseration call if I can to him when down there next week.
I am still waiting for the local Quaks to call, my spies inform me they have 4 bikes on the floor... I hope they have them still when I get back. I mean what is up with them not returning my e-mail/sms/personal query regarding the bike. Is my cash not good enough? Or do they think this GOF is wanking their chain!
I have also joined KLR650.net, this forum for this model is a treasure chest of tips and tales, great bunch of riders that love their Thumper Beast. Although the older model owners seem to be a tad green with envy with the 2008 model.
I also dug out my old kit... the gloves still fit, my summer pair needs some attention to the seams and the other just needs a good dose of dubbin to losen them up, the heavy winter ones are still perfect, just right for this trip. The tank bag I made for my Z750 should work just fine and my rain mittens are still ok but alas the rain boots are all gummed together. So all I need now is Helmets and a rainsuit and we are good to go. This is going to be a long weekend!
This song has been in my head all week as well...
Motor bikin' - motor bikin' - motor bikin' - motor cycling
Moving on the Queens highway looking like a streak of lightening
If you gotta go go gotta go motor bike riding

Listen to me and I'll tell you no lie
Too fast to live too young to die
I bought a new machine today say
It takes your breath away.

Motor bikin' - motor bikin' - motor bikin' - motor cycling
Moving on the Queens highway looking like a streak of lightening.

Oh baby won’t you come with me
I'll take you where you want to be

Well here I am again I'm dressed in black
I got my baby she's a riding up back
A we're doing about ninety five
Whoo it's so good to be alive.

Motor bikin' - motor bikin' - motor bikin' - motor cycling
Moving on the Queens highway looking like a streak of lightening
If you gotta go go gotta go motor bike riding

Motor bikin' - motor bikin' - motor bikin' - motor cycling
Moving on the Queens highway looking like a streak of lightening
If you gotta go go gotta go motor bike riding
Motor Biking by Chris Spedding... yeah baby, Let the good times roll!
"Never say never, for if you live long enough, chances are you will not be able to abide by its restrictions. Never is a long, undependable time, and life is too full of rich possibilities to have restrictions placed upon it." Gloria Swanson (1899 - 1983)
