Hard vs. Soft

To me, this is a no-contest decision based upon many miles of experience: on one transcontinental ride the soft cases shifted in a long, rough road construction site, thus exposing a strap to hot...

The trouble with...

The trouble with good used KLR 650's is they cost considerably more than $2500. By the time you do the required mods, install the required accessories, repair the broken and worn components, you...

I've owned F650, R80G/S, R100GS, R1150GS, and R1200GS and logged many perfect "adventure" miles on them; just about 200k miles to be exact. My advice is to find a way to buy the Beemer.

Very amusingly presented, but very true. Do heed the author's advice. As always, common sense is your best weapon. My two rides to Alaska were great life-experiences; not inexpensive rides, but I...

Nice setup, ADVNCW. Who makes your horseshoe duffle? Looks to be just the right size.

I'm Sold - On the Original Center Stands

I've been wanting two Ride-Off stands for some time now. One for my R80/7 and the other for my Bumble Bee. After reading this thread, I'm much less inclined to modify either bike. Thanks to the...

There is a whole cult of bicycle riders who do long distance rides, camp along the way, and carry all their own gear. As an example, of ultra compact & lightweight equipment, I have a Nemo two person...

Recently added a CRF230L to my stable.

I just bought my '08 CRF230L a few weeks ago. I've been riding for ~44 years during which I covered 300,000+ miles with ~7500 miles of extremely off-road true wilderness riding. I've done two solo...

I am the "other rider" who made the jaunt with Carl in '02. Actually, I rode my '99 F650, not a K bike. I think I would still be up there stuck in the gravel and sand if I had attempted the RDN on a...

Do heated seats work well?

I think so.

I put together a seat heater myself. Attached the heater wire to the bottom of a sheepskin I bought from Barbara/Alaska sheepskins. It works so well, some might call it obscene. :) Because of all the...
