I bought a buddy's 2000 Yamaha VStar 1100 in 2002 and rode it from Fairbanks to the states and back; 10,000 miles in 28 days. I did it again in 2006; 12,400 miles in 34 days. It has just over 50,000 miles on it now. I'll never let it go. I want a KLR 650 to put a sidecar on for hauling my next dog around. Just can't afford a Bimmer but nice bike Svizz.
