I actually got a bunch of pictures of it emailed to me.
I was surprised he wasn't somewhat rude in the first email since I somehow overlooked where he said in the title & description, Never Raced, since I asked him. Maybe he saves his rudeness for AFTER he has the $$$$ I guess.
But he DID say in the ad, ready to race or show.
No show bike there...there's some fairly minor rust in a couple of places. Since it doesn't currently run, I'm not sure how that translates to, "ready to race" either. I concur he's probably one of those that searches out barn-fresh oddities and tries to flip 'em as fast as possible.
For me, bikes have NEVER been about making any money.....it's purely for the emotional, passionate feelings of getting something running and riding it down a twisty road, laughing at the sheer joy of it while the sun shines above....experiences like that are worth far more than mere dollars. I'm sure you all know exactly what I mean.
If you want to see the pics I'll upload 'em to Photobucket & post 'em.

I picked up a used KLR650 to add to my fleet and replace my old 93 DR650. I got a really good deal from the original owner up in San Francisco. I purchased this for a couple of reasons... First... Me and my son want to do some adventure riding. He's going to pick up a KLR himself and sort it...
