You couldn't pay me to ride a KLR after the first hour of that event, it gets so whooped out it's not even funny.

Yeah....but if you just roll over the whoops kind of nice and easy it ain't that bad.

I know winning ain't in the story, but it'll be fun, and it will be a good story anyhow. I'm just looking at it as a nice long trail ride.

I can't wait till the Le-mans style start when everybody lines up, runs across a field to their bike and tears out...

I'll stretch a bit, walk over to the ol 30k+ mile KLR, turn the key, push the button, and ride off nice and easy ....every bit of energy waisted the first hour is energy lost for the 24th.
