We now have 2 bikes in the garage. One 2004 KLR with 9000 miles and a 2007 with 5000 miles. I am currently using the 04 to commute to school on the freeway. The 2007 KLR is currently torn apart and waiting for some paint. I also should be order modifications such as lowering links, Happy Trails NERF/Skid Plate/Highway Pegs and the $100 softbag rear cage. Also need to do the DOhickey on the 07.
Went for another 2 up ride last night.
I am still working on the Route some more. I have been looking at Ride Reports and have been changing the route. I need to redo it so we can cut down the total amount of miles but still see the same sits and roads. Basically go up north on the west side, and south on a more easterly route.
I also bought 2 new Big Agnes Insulated Air Core pads (rectangle one long, one regular) for under $100 which was a great deal. We are both excited for the trip!
