    Yes sir..thanks for the offer.

    Starting 2013 here are the changes to smoking on my insurance:

    $25 per 2 weeks extra per smoker on my plan (was $25 a month).

    No copay for smoking cessation stuff (like the Chantix or Wellbutrin).

    As of 1/1/12, no smoking on company property.

    The good news is they will give me back the $25 per 2 weeks if I quit..that's almost $200 for me. That and I'm spending over $100 a week on the fkn things..

    Been thinking about it a little anyways, but the cancer scare this year got me to really want to.

    Ya the money is crazy . I try not to think about how much I've spent in the past 15 years .
    I liked the side effects with chantix . Crazy dreams , I'd sleep like 4 hours a day but have tons of energy lol . I can never remember dreams unless I'm on the pill. Strange I know but that's me.
    Stick with it :thumbsup:

    I started at $1.50 a pack, always said if they hit $4 a pack I was done. Yeah how did that work...although over $100 a week sux, it's nothing compared to my bar tabs when I was still drinking that badass hit $400 a week easy.

    I tried it a few yrs ago and only had the stomach upset now and then..used that as an excuse not to see it through then but this time I really gotta give it my best effort.

    That's a bummer about not having 6th gear, I wasn't aware of that. That might not be a good bike for me, I need it to be able to hold highway speeds for at least short stints.

    I actually found 2 of them for sale. The one I looked at was at MOM South in Forxborough but they are always way overpriced. They wanted $3,300 for a 2002 DRZ400S but it only had 1,400 miles on it. I was going to try to trade them straight up for mine because they had a 2002 Suzuki Katana 600 with more miles than mine and they wanted close to $4,000 for it :jerkoff: They're consistantly priced at $1,000 - $1,200 over KBB.

    The other one I found is a 2003 with dual sport tires, 10,000 miles, 2003 and he wants to trade for a street bike. I haven't contacted him yet, but that might be a good deal if I can get it done. It has a lot of aftermarket goodies and is ready to hit the trails.

    I know you like Suzuki there is the Yamaha WR450 wasn't made for long dual sport and have a 250 version. Could always go Hypermotard but I think that will break the bank

    I would love to have the Hypermoto but cash is an issue. I'm just poking around and trying to find something I can trade mine for.

    I'm not set on any particular brand, the DRZ just seems to be the most common. I wouldn't mind an XR but they are tough to find and I can't handle the XR650, it's way too tall for me to comfortably ride. I have found a few KLX and KDXs also that looked decent but were beat to hell. The new dual sport that Yamaha came out with looks nice but it's too new for me to trade for. The new one is fuel injected :)

    I'm not in any rush, mine still runs great and is fun to ride, I just don't need the screamer any longer and want to get back into trail riding. With the baby on the way, I've decided not to drive the bike to work anymore so I want to be able to hit some trails on the weekends at least.

    Up in Maine for the next few days. It is so damn nice out right now. It's killing me sitting here at my desk looking out the window at the sunshine. Wish I was outside right now.

    I quit when I was 21 and started again..oh well, what's done is done. I just would rather not fork over any more money to Uncle Sam for the damn things. Pisses me off royally for all the bitching about smokers they love the revenue from it don't they?

    I've dipped and smoked off and on since 17ish. I can't quit smoking in 2 seconds. Put a lip in and I won't touch them for 6 months then ill get bored. I have anxiety that started while smoking so when I stop I'm a grump lol.

    Hondas are some coin too. Mine is an 86 with the RFVC head and dual carb a primary and secondary. Thing is an absolute tank. It takes all the rocky big roots and jagged hill climbs. Run flat out for miles on end, gets air born. I rode this bike like I stole it. Has yet to let me down besides 2 levers from trees and a kick lever.
