2007 KLR 650... had it from 2012 until yesterday when it went away in someone else's trailer.

I've ridden it 3 times in in the last 4 years. It was time to say goodbye.

I still have the 2002 DRZ400 I bought in 2006. It's outlived 2 Rubicons I owned.

At least you sell things. I currently have 3 jeeps, 3 bmws and 1 dodge. Not to mention 2 trailers.

I think I have a problem.

3 BMWs...



I have a trailer problem, still.


I've gone through a few trailers over the last year and a half. I bought a 6x10 that was too good of a deal to pass up in Decemebr 2017, spiffed it up, used it a few times, then started thinking about a 7x12. A friend over in Puyallup told be about a nice 7x12 a friend of his was selling. That was too good of a deal to pass up, so I bought it. I towed the 6x10 to my friend's house where his friend had towed the 7x12 to, I left the 6x10 and took the 7x12 back to Spokane with me.

The friend's house I left the 6x10 at sold it within a week. Trailers are easier to sell on the west side than on the east side of the state.


Oh, then there's the surplussed Home Depot rental trailers I bought and resold. I had 4, and kept one of them.


On the KLR, like a Jeep, I dumped far too much money into it. That's partly why I kept convincing myself to keep it. I've debated a lot about it over the last year, and finally decided it just needs to go away. I found myself continually inventing ideas on how I could take it on trips to get some use out of it.... but there's other things I'd rather do, so that pretty much sealed the idea of selling the KLR.

My newest ride (last spring) is a 2019 Bobcat E42 mini-excavator with cab and several buckets and a ripper. Decided to keep my 20 year-old F-250 diesel long bed and buy the mini-ex instead.

We're going to trade in our 2017 (2018?) Ford Fusion Hybrid Platinum on a 2020 Ford Explorer Limited. Ford changed the Explorer chassis to rear wheel drive - kudos to Ford!

The tow pig is looking like this now. I have been in the middle of a flatbed build for about a year. The LJ project got in the way. The bed is all but done, but is now a storage spot for the LJ hardtop and a bunch of parts. Ill get back to it once the LJ is out of the way.

It may be where the spare goes on the other side. Recessed into the bed to about stock fender height. If I opt to build for a slide in camper.
