The three things you need to fix anything in the universe: duct tape, WD-40 and a hammer.  If it moves and it shouldn't, use the duct tape.  If it doesn't move and it should, use the WD-40.  Otherwise use the hammer.

I think that's PURELY a skill issue....













Although maybe a bit of mechanical apathy as well  ::)

Inderdaad!

I'm actually not really scared of jumping... I had my brown adrenaline moments on the KDX, and the KLR just doesn't land as well, and as I said, a lack of mechanical sympathy makes up the balance  ;D

So. No RDR this time? No jumping blind heights? Testing of the KLR's handle bars? What's happening?  :rolleyes: :mrgreen:
