Okay. My current BMW. Let's see if I can remember all the tracks it's been on during its racing days. Daytona (12 times), Roebling Road, Steamboat Springs, Road America, Texas World Speedway, Louden, Mid Ohio, PIR, Oak Hill Raceway.....well the list goes on and I can't remember them all.

If it weren't for the therapeutic properties of the occasional off-camber decreasing radius downhill right-hander I'd almost certainly go completely sane.

As for the KLR roundel, when I had mine it was a popular tongue in cheek decal the KLR faithful put on their bikes.
