Where do you think you'll be mid-May?

Hey John! Looks like I'll have some work in Denver mid-May. I think I'll ride my KLR out there, then scoot up to Cody to visit some friends, and then back to NC. Having studied the map, I see that...

What tank bag are you using?

I think that's the tank bag I had on my first KLR. It came with the bike and I'd like to get another one. I don't like taking my current bag off to fuel up.

OK is ok. I lived in Tulsa from '74...

I bought an '09 KLR IN May, 2011 with 1,500 miles.

I needed a bike more interstate worthy so I sold it and bought a wee Strom in May last year. The wee performed well but I did miss the KLR. :cry In October I came across an inmate here who wanted to...

Homestead Act of 1862

Yep, that's my grandson. We're headed to Oshkosh next week.
