We've got the same year model Chuck. Your's probably isn't scuffed up like
mine. Did you get luggage (that looks like 1980's portable TVs attached to
the bike ).
I did add a center stand that was a bitch to install. Actually the stand is
a breeze to install its the 2 springs that are the bitches.
I like the upright riding position better than the asphalt surfing position.
If you plan to ride it on dirt roads I would suggest you get Karoo or TK
tires for it.
Good luck with it. I've found it a nice ride.

Well, I might as well chime in here. I have crossed over to the Zook side as
well. Bought a 2003 1000 VStrom last week. Damn glad I did. Fun ride for
Selling the KLR and the Venture to pay the freight. Talking with lots of
folks the last few days. Glad I don't have to sell used bikes for a living.
Anyhow Scaps, if you do get back up here this summer, we will ride together
again. Only not so slow as last time.
Jim, We are kindred spirits once again. Bro!
