Seems it was for a scanner that he would listen to for leads as a photographer for a news paper.
The tires now have 35 miles on them from me, not just new but wicked new. Here are the specs:
2002 KLR 650 Enduro with 19k original miles. Brand new Metzler tires front and rear. Skid plate, radiator gaurd, new OEM stock seat, rear rack with water tight locking ammo boxes, 12 volt auxillary power source with fuse in rear box, new battery, wired for trickle charger. Ammo boxes are all carpeted and set up for photography equipment. Tripod mount, helmet lock and signals are now mounted on upper box. Added center stand along with kick stand. Moose bar risers. Scotts fork stabilzer. "Doohickey" kit done.
