I did ride a KLR to Alaska in the late 80s. Used a cheap aftermarket windshield, home made highway pegs, and a home made rear rack. The new one looks like it would be a bit more comfortable though.

I'll go 5/25, if I can get my bike running again. The normally reliable Big Blue Ox lost all spark all of a sudden last week. I suspect the ignition stator.
