Nice to see something worked. At 0C this morning, just touched the starter on the KLX, and it fired right up. One hotter plug, and a carb drain...

Good to hear you are on the mend. Hoping to be out in that neck of the woods later this summer. Will look you up to share a beer with. Take care and get well.

Glad to see you getting back in action. I Hope to have time to massage your bike a bit this weekend. When your feeling good enough to ride bus it up and ride it back. We'll turn it into a weekend at camp.

....I ended up with a ( I assume..) Kawasaki Versy's sidestand in the Garage....
Does it go west?....I can hand deliver with assorted KLR parts in a month...
...or to Ottawa??.... I can mail it....or wait until next year when I head to the Rock?


On another note....took back just over 300 empty soda pop cans.....A NEW CAMP RECORD!!!!!

I thought that was you I saw at around 13:00 yesterday Garth. I didnt think there were too many others on the red white and blue 800's around sporting Klim gear. I was on lunch otherwise I would have chased you down

Damn glad to see this post! You scared the shit out of me. So much so we never even got a picture of your ditch pose.

I guess you never do anything half way and I'm happy to hear you're recovering and RTR(ready to Race).

By the way, my Beemer would never have survived.

Cheers Feliz, Keep on keepin on

590 and 593 are not affected at all.
Even all the rain that fell was not enough to wash all the winter
control sand off of 593 though.
Was through there on monday, and since most of the other routes were washed out, went
across the border instead.
Less moose during the day than at midnight.

We rode those and the Boreal Road today. Mostly in good shape but there was a huge washout some...Lappeman got a picture, maybe he'll post later. I didn't get a picture, as I lost my camera

Hey Gord, that's a pretty cool rig! Now you have to get out there and practice "flying the chair". You know you've got it when you can do figure eights with the sidecar wheel off the ground- all the way around.
Good for learning when that dreaded steering revision takes place. (something that sidecar pilots need to know)

Hi Northrider, I'd like to add my best wishes for a full and speedy recovery and hope you're back in the saddle soon. It was great to meet you at NOFAR although I wish it was under different circumstances. I hope to see you again in the future. Maybe I can make it out to Thunder Bay sometime later this season.
