That is because he was using a KLR camera.

That's obviously not a KLR camera, there isn't a single zip tie.

Perhaps....

Here are some KLR jokes ( It might help settle the conflict )


Q: What's the cheapest thing on a KLR?
A: The rider!


A Harley rider, a BMW rider and KLR rider are all sitting at a Bar. The bartender walks over and says, is this some sort of a joke? The KLR rider says no, this is no joke. It would only be if they thought I was paying.

I feel like if that situation were to occur, the Harley rider would be piss drunk and the BMW rider would be instructing the bartender on how to properly make some specialty cocktail from a country that doesn't even exist anymore. Meanwhile the KLR rider pounds a 40 of Steel Reserve as he fixes his bike in the parking lot

Any one ride durring the week?

So it's back to DMV tomorrow, turns out since bike is from RI, I have to have the VIN confirmed, and only at some locations, so I'm off to weatherfield in the am. So the bike is coming along, new bars, skid plate, hand guards, sprockets and tires! I have to put the tires and sprokets on, hopefully after DMV.

So, does anyone ride during the week? maybe next Mon, Tue or Wed?

Anyone got a Sunday ride in them? Always looking for the good stuff: double that borders on single up to sweet pavement lines.

I may be up for a ride in my area Sunday, hopefully on the "big bike (f650gs) but the DRZ400 is the back up. I'm doing a bunch of maintenance on the F650 before a big ride up into Canada (leaving tuesday?) that includes a new water pump amongst other things so I desperately want to do a "shake down" ride or two before Tuesday.. Unfortunately the bike is still mostly apart at the moment and I'm also awaiting delivery of a new rear sprocket...

so I can't commit to anything yet. Sunday morning I'll either have the 650 ready to go, be waiting on parts but could take the DRZ for a spin, or I'll be feverishly wrenching in the garage trying to get things finished..

07 650GS / 05 DRZ400S / 72 CB350 (that hasn't run since shortly after I bought it)

Beter focus on that 650, It would be a long way back.

Week day ride next week

I could see a Pachuag on my TW200, don't know it too well but willing to get lost
