    Right after that. :D

    Man, I almost bought a DR650 last week. Buncha mods, <4k miles, $3800. Looked nice; someone else got there first. :notsure:

    I'm not sure I 'd ride often enough to justify a dual-sport, though.

    Nice.

    I got mine bone stock with 3k miles for 2800 though. Ended up getting 3k for it after adding 5k miles haha.

    I'm not in a hurry (kind-of), but I'm thinking I'd like a big thumper dual-sport. Something I could ride to the Jemez, and then ride in the Jemez (or the Manzanos, or Mt. Taylor, etc.). OTOH, I don't want $4k tied up in something that doesn't get used much. :confused:

    I'll figure it out eventually. :homer:

    You already got something that can do all that. It is called "The Little Goat That Can". Go sink $4k into modding that, sucka! :D

    4 wheels good, 2 wheels baaaad.

    I have physical therapy at 4. Going to try to push being at your place at 6. Can make the decision there about going out to the mesa.

    I can't believe you're paraphrasing Orwell. :D

    The truck does need some work; pads & rotors, new leaf springs, tie rod ends, etc., but not $4k worth. If I lift it, it's that much higher to have to load gear into.

    Don't make me whip out a "I pity the foo'!"

    New leaf springs = new lift. Dakars = 2.5" 2.5" you won't notice loading stuff. Get some 881s for the front, call the lift done. Then go get some Allpro bumpers. Bam!

    Then get a CB so you can chatter like a meenkey on the trail with us as we explore the great NM landscape.

    Bam!

    PS: don't forget some rock sliders and a heavy duty skidplate. Bam!

    I was depressed once, a long, long time ago. I watched "1984" with John Hurt many, many times. Very powerful and... ta-da!, depressing. :D

    Orwell was actually one of those high school required reading books that I was never required to read. Finally got curious after college and read a few of his books. The cartoon version of "Animal Farm" is good times! OK, not really but way fun to mess up the kiddy-winkies thinking it is a Disney movie.

    PS: did you like the goat allusion? Fits in so many ways with this conversation...
