Made it to Comox for the day.

Thoughts for the day, Tofino road is very good, but yesterdays ride thru Cowichan, Port Renfrew, Sooke was a better riders road.

The Yamaha was getting ever so slightly better gas mileage than the stock jetted KLR, but now the KLR is getting ever so slightly better mileage at sea level.

The Super Tenere stock seat is incredibly comfortable in long distances as well as the ergonomic setup of the bike for my stature. For sure more comfortable than my beloved R1200RT with BMW comfort seat.

I patched a leak on one of the bolts on the right pannier, but it is still leaking at the seal of the lid. Left side and top box is totally dry. EDIT** Field adjusted the pannier handles/locks, they can be adjusted to either tighter or looser than factory settings.**

My Daytona boots have kept my feet totally dry

Revit H2O gloves aren't fully waterproof.

I wonder how much better high end textile gear like Klim would do in the weather we have so far encountered. I don't care for rainsuits that don't breathe.
