I changed my oil before the 1000 miles and again when I got back. It was not very dirty.

Be sure to save your old oil for the KLR guys. They don't necessarily believe that changing their oil requires new oil.

"I stop at the local gas station and fill the bike up all the way, thinking I just gonna run the dual-sport tomorrow, so a little more gas won't hurt (yeah, right). After that I am back to the campground, look at the bike, check the oil, which is low, and the chain (looks good). I then proceed to the parts trailer, and ask if they sell oil. He asks me what I am running, I answer, it doesn't matter, it's a KLR. Then I tell him that I am usually running Rotella, and he tells me there is a 5 gallon bucket somewhere with about 2 quarts left. They were using this for waste oil. So I get the bucket, and the oil looks still clean, I fill up the KLR, and recognize that I am now officially a KLR riders. Free oil, it doesn't get cheaper then that. Then I cut and loaded my rollchart for the next day."

On the Garmin V it was tough following the track at times because the display is in grey scale. There were times that the trackline was the same shade as the background. Anyone doing it this in the future should make sure they have a hard copy set of maps if you only have a grey scale GPS.
Rich:

I will also be purchasing a 60CSX within the next 6 weeks as it seemed to be the GPS of choice on CannonTrek II and as you state the color track line.

I Have the GPSmap 76 CSx because it floats. You never know where the ride will take you.

Looks like fun

Hey Guys,

It looks like you had a great time. Can't wait to get out and ride again. Finally all moved in to Detroit, and longing for some singletrack, DS fun.

Thanks for taking us along for the ride.

Any planning in the works for CTIIa? Hopefully I can make that one.


Bryan, good work as always.

Brian Y

Here's what those trails look like in the Winter. The only dust we see is snow dust on very cold days. It was fun to see the same spots that we ride in the summer season.
