Yeah,...

I rode it a few years ago with a team of friends from Cullman, Al. Plus I've raced Hare-Scrambles down in Maplesville several times.

Are you gonna ride it?

nope, spent a shitload of money and time to do that event last year and had more fun the couple years before just hanging around and offering support.

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.

Enjoy!

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.

If I make 18 laps on the KLR.....next year you let me ride a nice Husky of yours.....

Deal?

18 laps Iron man on a 2 stroke is an accomplishment, 18 laps on a KLR would be a miracle. We've supported an IronMan 40+ in open class on a BMW G650X 2 years ago, he got 17laps and is a very accomplished endurance rider on a bike better suited for that type of event.

Good luck with it.

Sell 20 Husky's for me and I'll give you a Husky to ride all the time and call it your own

I gave the great Cavemans KLR a good once over at the Tellico KLR ride this past weekend. I will mimic his set-up on the dual radiator installation.

I'll be installing the IMS tank today, pics to follow.

Also, rim-locks will be installed today...with the edges good and sharp so they'll dig in the tire a bit better(more Caveman advice ).

Hi Al,

I'm #146 in Iron Man 40+ and am looking forward to the event. TreeMan told me about the PM24 and I knew that I had to try it out.

See you there!

Chuck
