> First off, let me say thanks again for the help and support in Montrose. And the shirts fit great. The Geeper emerged scraped up, but still functional, as near as I can tell. The shipper did a great job, delivered it to my front door, and actually rolled it into place for me. I can't actually ride it yet, or even hold it up, and probably won't be able to for months, by which time the snow will fly here.
> Well after I got back from Colorado, I ended back in the hospital here in Helena, around the 4th of July. Staph infection in the collapsed lung, probably from the drain tube they had in me. Sick as a dog in hospital for a week. Life was suckin'.
> But I have been home for two weeks and am now up and about. Now just dealin' with the pain of six broken ribs and a broken collarbone and limited capabilities. On the bright side I have dropped 25 pounds, and still going!
> Here is the bad news, with all of the unanticipated expenses of shipping and towing, and my my wifes' sick horses and things around the house and our property, I need money, and have decided to sell the GPZ. Damn I know, but I have enjoyed it for several years. Yes it is a great bike, best I have ever owned actually, but I am thinking that sport-touring is less a factor in my future riding, and that I need a dual sport much more, especially with my property in the hills where I cannot even take the GPZ.
> I am looking at the 2008 KLR 650 or the 2008 650 VStrom with ABS. But I won't be getting anything until next spring at the soonest, so I have the winter to window shop. I am getting pictures of the GPZ together, but will advertise it in the local paper first. I am asking $2500 OBO, I think it is fair for a great bike with less than 20,000 miles, but I have no idea what to expect with the scraped up plastic... probably less. Anyhow if anyone is interested let me know.
