For any of you beginner riders on KLR650 or similar bikes reading Larryboy's posts where he says it was easy for him, remember he is a rider with advanced skills.

His ride reports have always inspired me to follow where he has gone, but I do it on smaller and lighter bikes. To take an Adventure Bike where he goes is just amazing.

Thanks Rob, for leading the way.

I'm seriously not riding the big bike very fast, 15 mph or so on the road into the springs, XRR or 610 would be 60-70 mph, KLR 30 mph, Buell 5 mph.

Will be taking 155 on the way home to complete the big loop ...

See you around the campfire!

I bet you don't feel so lucky right now.

Good luck!!

I've been shopping for heated gear, I might be getting soft.
