Yeah, everytime I got rid of a bike and didn't have another available, I always kicked myself after. Even if it was the right thing to do!
Congrats on your soon to be '07 ST1300!

I've had my ST for several years and I can't give it up.
Well the first KLR I rode was the old style, and a few months later I got the '09. I don't know what it is, but I really dig the older style. I've heard this from several other KLR owners as well. I think it has to do with the more primitive design of the older one.
