    The ones at wheels in motion are decently close to me (like 30mi) but ill be within ~10mi next week at some point so just LMK if you wanted me to stop by and get pics in person. Prices are DEFINITELY coming down, purchased my 2015 ES with 21k miles for 9k (aftermarket skid, trekker side cases, givi crash bars) up in Oregon because it was one of the cheapest and cleanest in October of 2022. Prices then for very similar bikes you have linked to (same year or newer with similar or less miles) were easily 3-4k+$ more than what I paid back last year. Those 2022's for under 10k are a phenomenal deal IMO.

    As long as it has heated grips (forget which year they become standard... though even then heated grips are an easyish addon). Yeah even though I have an ES, I dunno that I would let it change too much of my decision after riding with it. It IS nice when going from 2 up loaded to just me, but that stated, some cranks of the preload knob on the non ES fixes that, and I HARDLY change the rebound/compression settings on the ES dash once I have found what I like.

    I've been sitting around since last Thursday without riding, and I haven't been able to do the oil change or tires either because I can't take it for a spin before working on it.

    I've been keeping myself busy with other projects, though.

    Oil change can be done cold no problem. Actually a bit easier as things all drain down to the sump.

    Tire's... just bring em inside to heat up!

    It's been nice enough down here that we haven't had rain yet...some was projected today and I took a chance...so far it's dry.

    Tomorrow and Friday are supposed to be more likely though, so we'll see.

    I'm getting antsy about the R3...I know it's only really been like a month since I dropped it off, and I'm still waiting for parts but dang am I impatient lol. Also just ordered a full exhaust, ECU flash tune, and some other components for it to get thrown on as well. This thing is gonna be one nicely spec'd out track bike.

    Oil should always be warm to help thin it to drain it out easier. That's not the issue, it's the heating up of the existing tires at half pressure like you suggested that I don't want to do. I could take the wheels off as well and throw them in front of a heater but that will take forever.

    I had the year before (1985) and that was my first street bike. Lots of good memories on that machine. Getting a brand new bike at 18 was pretty awesome.

    Took the Klx out for a ride today. Put about 50 miles on it. Went up to the logging roads and took it pretty easy. I made the bike feel even slower being about 25lbs heavier than I was when I had the 22. Still not sure about mods yet. Would like different mirrors, handlebar risers.

    Just for the record - I'm in California as well and am also sitting inside due to the rain.

    It's all good, though, wife is on vacation and I'm working from home this week so good time to binge watch old seasons of F1.

    I believe it! I have a 140cc on my '67(ish) Trail 90. Going 60mph on skinny 55 year old wheels is terrifying.
