    Yeah Mick, its in the Classifieds for 1500. I have 3 people on ADV interested. Are you? The guy who looked today didnt like it cause it was dirty I think. He said his wife would yell at him and offered 1250. I told him to take a hike.

    That is one of the bikes I'm seriously considering as my next one.

    Give us a full review at some point.

    My initial ride report:

    KLR650.NET - Your Kawasaki KLR650 Resource! - View Single Post - First Ride, First Impressions

    As a caveat, I would now say the brakes are much better than I originally thought.

    Slightly OT, but how's that floor holding up? Looks good. Man, I'd love to paint my shop floor.

    Its okay, there is a couple of spots flaking up. I will try an patch them when its warmer. Overall its okay for my less than 200 dollar investment.

    Keep your eyes on the oil consumption come spring time; I've read that a few people have been getting a lot of oil burn.

    Nice purchase... welcome to the club! And you got the right color too!!!

    As for oil, I did burn some when I did highway riding... but none at all on normal riding (which for me is sub 60mph)
