Saturday I headed out to Pipestone area under the threat of rain....it held off and I had a fine time.
Sunday I went north out of Bozeman up past Maudlow, an old basically abandoned railroad town.
There were a few deer
And a few elk
Sixteen Mile Creek
Back in the valley heading home

It is a momentous occasion as I finally actually own all of my 2005 KLR650 motorcycle! I made my last payment and paid off my balance owed today. I have never had a loan on a vehicle except this one, and I am glad it's over with! It took me since late 2004 when I bought it till now. So that is over 4 years. Waaaaay too long. One less monthly payment is a wonderful feeling! Now I just have to try and restrain myself from getting another bike right away! It's gonna be hard not too, but the crappy economy greatly tempers my spending urges....

"The concept of a versatile motorcycle equally at home on dirt and pavement is as old as motorcycling itself. Most roads were still unpaved when motorized bicycles first appeared around 1900. In a sense, all motorcycles at that time were dual sports, intended to be used on dirt as well as pavement. Advertisements well into the 1920’s depict motorcycles on dirt roads, raising clouds of dust. By 1940, most roads were paved and motorcycles had become heavier and more oriented to the street. In the 1950’s and 60’s British manufacturers such as Triumph and BSA offered versions of their, relatively light, street motorcycles with high exhaust pipes, and called them scramblers.”
