Oh, and he said if i come in a few days early and he's not at the house by the 3 firetrucks, check in the "Saloon area"

already marked my calendar, just have to get my vacation days approve.

drive up thursday night, ride fri, sat and sun am (wmrs via wyman), the head home in the afternoon. love to participate in the saturday festivity and all breakfast. most likely sleeping in my van, no rv space needed.


jason, that sounds good.
Indeed

count me in as one of the "noobs", I'll be riding in from Tampa FL with a DSLR cam and cannot wait to meet and ride with you all, see that area and take just one or two pics (edit in) and eat Herb's vittles

Hi if you email Herb per post #1 he will call you with ALL details and then some. SUP NICE guy. I plan to ride in from FL and camp, and although my KLR holds it share of fuel I figure someone might run out and need some and I had the gas can in the garage anyway. Here's a simple solution for more fuel. The Rotopax gas cans are fairly cheap and simple to mount or just strap under your cargo on the rear seat.

I could have easily done another gallon the same way on the other side rack too.

Refused to pay $40-50 for the "factory plate" to mount my spare fuel tank onto the KLR. This project then went "KLR on the cheap" style

Instead I got $16 worth of parts/nuts/bolts and fab'd my own.

I usually shop Target, but Teressa finds this cutting board at the Wal-mart store


So under the knife it goes..... and the cut off pieces fall right into the recycle bin. Not that I'm all green like that....


Couple of dollars worth of Ace Hardware bolts and these weird rubberized straps that allowed us to bolt a flat object to a tube and we're there.


Added the part of the rotopax tank that gets mounted to a plate. Then I added some padding strips for no other reason than piece of mind. Plus i like it because the rotopax/wolfman plate didn't have such =)


Now I'm ready to throw over the wolfman soft panniers on and roll. With 50-60 miles, 1 gallon more gasoline for the desert (in addition to the KLR's already 6.1)

Finally remebered to email Herb on Friday night. Talked with him today. Now I need to get my sh!t together.

steveWFL I like the penny tech. My grandfather was a master at that kind of engineering. Fortunately for me I paid attention to his wisdoms.
