Even if I've been to the dump numerous times in it during a home remodel? It got dirty and everything.

Metro area? I'd rather drive a Tacoma. More handy and very off road capable if you need it.



If it's bizarro looks you crave the Aztek has everybody else beat... hands down.

Seriously, I have nothing against the Tundras. I was very surprised that Toyota managed to field a real 1/2 ton truck for less $ than the old T100. I'm starting to see a few in serious off road use now.



You can hold your head up high, secure in the knowledge that your truck could actually be used off road capably. Not that you ever would. Might scratch it. Or spill some of the latte out of the cupholder onto the pink shag carpet. Or make the dingleballs shake loose.

Yep I bet Buz really uses that 4WD capability in SD.

Speed triple with knobbies. Ask Tom Cruise.

Yep I bet maladg uses 4WD as much as Buz does. :)

There is a good chance those ladies might use the 4WD capability in the winter time. On the other hand I am sure McCall gets the same SUV commericials on FOX as San Diego gets :)

I have to agree about not including the DR. Seems the DR gets dissed in the comparos everywhere, not just on MO. It's lighter and doesn't have the mechanical snafus of the KLR. A superior ride in IMNSHO. I can't ride mine enough. What have you done to it to set it up for adventure touring?

A friend and I rode to South America. I was on a DR and he was on a KLR and we both though the DR was a much betterb bike on the street and especially in the dirt. You can see the various mods I made at my website http://www.twowheelsgood.net

What did you think of Western ID? Not too bad of a place, eh?



Have fun in Rome!
