Markham Ontario to Memphis on a 2000 KLR

Last April I tried to ride from Markham Ontario to Nashville and made it as far as Kentucky. I endured heavy rain, freezing temps and high winds last year so I'm heading down from the 27 of Sept til the 4th or 5th of October. I've done a bunch of modifications to my bike, home made windshield extension, bought a optrix iphone case, lowered my front fork tubes 1 3/4 to match my lowered rear progressive shock and a sheep skin seat cover. Riding the KLR at full height in high winds was very, very tiring and having your bike fall over full of gear was just a pain in the ass. Last April I didn't have the Optrix phone case and just used google maps with wifi and a ear bud, worked ok, got lost in Detroit and do not want to do that again...

Here is my bike with mods and I will post pics of my trip while I'm the road...
