I'm enjoying the ride report.
It's kinda cool to see on your bike what looks to be some of the stuff that was on my old bike.
Is Mendovet still planning to join you?
Going to the hardware store proved mildly fruitful...a big washer and the only 8mm nut I could find, but ample lights and stereo equip if I wanted to deck out my bike. I will keep hunting for something better suited, but until then, this should work.
And yes...I hijacked the rack and tank bags from your old bike. Menudovet will be joining me next month! Unfortunately, not with the KLR due to time constraints. That KLR has seen a lot of CA & OR though.
