Anybody heard from GeauxBiker?

It's been over two weeks since GB made an update to this RR. Last update, he was making the trek from Mazatlan to Durango; a pretty demanding 8 hour ride on questionable tires.

The Mother Road and PCH...

Sorry you won't be in east Texas, we got some great two-lane roads.

As for Route 66 and Hwy 1, I'll throw in my two cents. I've ridden both Chicago to Barstow, and Santa Maria, CA to Port...

A little more help... my 2 cents

1st if you have an issue with any of the three safety switches (neutral, side-stand, or clutch) the starter will not engage and the engine will not turn over.

2nd the bike was running when you...

Are you still in Houston?

Started following your Epic Ride and it got high-centered in Houston. I'm about 40 miles northeast of Conroe and know the weather has been crap for the past few days. Makes for a good opportunity...

Thanks for letting me tag along...

Fickle is a word that comes to mind when I read about your route planning. When I saw you Monday afternoon you were balls to the wall for Arizona. Glad you decided to change things up a bit to...

Riding Therapy...

Thanks for the kind thoughts. Hope the KTM dealer in San Antonio gets your fuel issues resolved so we can hit the Texas Hill Country. I need some riding therapy to put a lot of reality behind me.

Sorry I don't have the capability to add photos - need to subscribe and pay for a Smugmug account so I can be more productive.

It is amazing to me the brilliance of the inmates on ADVrider ! Thanks for solving the mystery of the gas tank. Since there is little demand for gas tanks for the early French vintage (1920 - 1930)...

Fuel Issues...

I've been thinking about your fuel delivery issues and a few things come to mine. If it was water in the tank the symptoms would not change with a full tank of fuel; the water in the tank will stay...

I've been getting ready for the trek to Terlingua and missed wishing you an early send-off. I'm heading west in about two hours. Reading this report has prompted me to take my KLR. So, if you make...

Use the front brake...

I don't have a centerstand, but do use a "jiffy-jack". When lifting the rear wheel I wrap a bungee cord around the front brake lever so it can't roll forward or backwards. Working on the front...

Looking forward to following this Superior Ride report. The new KTM looks awesome. Can't believe its already used up a rear tire. Must be a problem between the right grip and the seat. hahaha....

bassplayinroach - riding comfort

You didn't mention what kind of seat you have on your KLR. When I got mine, about 50,000 miles ago, it had a Corbin seat. Super comfy on the butt, but moved me too close to the foot pegs. I put...

I have followed your ride report from the beginning and looked forward to each update. Even shivered a bit when reading about riding in the snow.
I do hope to see you and your Helix in future...
