A few from my recent Georgia to NH ride

Lots of gear on that Tengai!


Pulled over for speeding on the Blue Ridge Parkway. No officer, I don't know how fast I was going - My spedometer doesn't work... Turns out I was going 57 in a 45 on a straight section with dotted yellow line. He said I could hit a bicyclist... Homeboy had his hand on his gun as he talked to me and he yelled at me for getting off the bike when I pulled over. Then he instructed me to sit on the bike with the kickstand up - I was so confused. He let me go with a written warning and wasn't too happy that I took this photo.

oh, my klr is no stranger to swimming

actually, i can live with boots filled with water fine as long as it's not the end of november! it was rough going and i was stuck on a something like 11 mile option while riding a dual sport. rained the whole time. but what happened there is i had my new fancy (pivot pegz) pegs mounted on the bike and at one point, while riding through the water my peg caught my torn boot and made me go sideways. once i was down with the bike on top of me i could not get the bike off because my boot was caught in the peg and it was starting to grind my ankle. fortunately little later couple of big (well one is, the other not so much) NYC ff's helped take the bike off me.
it got uglier from there on.
here is another pic from a separate event that can serve as a warning to what happens when you listen to someone who just ate it try and direct you where the good line is. klr had no problem spitting some water out.



love the night shots!

my first dual-sport!

My RT broke down on Wednesday. The money I was going to use to buy a KLR is now going to be spent to fix the BMW. So, caution to the wind, I called the local dealer friday morning and had them set it up!
couldnt be happier

good for you, man! they are nice, versatile, bikes- great for trail riding and picking up groceries!

Welcome to the world of dual sport riding Hoagy! I think you will find the KLR to be extremely fun, reliable and capable of handling any situation. I've had mine for 3 years and would never part with it because it's like having a swiss army knife on wheels.
Congratulations!

My new-ish-to-me '04 KLR, and my mate's even-newer-to-him '09 (or '08?). Excuse the crappy phone pic. Off Seventeen Mile Road near Toowoomba, QLD, Australia. Not sure if we strayed into private property .

Farkles, all by previous owner but one:
Barkbusters
AL bashplate
Renthal bars (or are these stock?)
Staintune exhaust
Cheap Chinese topbox ('Stlun')
Tool tubes fashioned from Sea to Summit drink bottle holders and some drainpipe
Moto-style pegs
Headlight guard fashioned from a $3 stationery basket (my farkle)

Oh, and I'm not an alcoholic, nor am I a member of the British Automobile Association. It's an 'all access' vehicle pass for a festival I help organise.
