White Power (WP). They are a whole new set of forks off of a KTM dirtbike. Fully adjustable USD forks.

Sand Ninja ATTACK!!!

Did a quick spin through the sand yesterday during a ride with a friend.







I was running highway tire pressures front and rear because I really didn't want to air down and re-inflate for 10 minutes of playing around...

With the double rimlocks front and rear, I usually air down to 5-8psi in the sand and really get on it...

But she still did well.

Let's see those KLR 650's (87'-08'if there out)!!

I have always wanted to see all the years of KLR's, basicly the color changes through the years. Also, if you got your's used, like me, did you get a screamin' deal!?
I did, 1200.00 bucks, because the PO did not fix the petcock right. Here's my 87'...
Sorry about the color washout, it was a bit cloudy that day. I'll look for a better shot.




What you got?
