Mt. Scott, 1990 ft.



Went by the wind farms. These things are about 200ft tall. Wheat is ready for harvest. Combines everywhere.
It was so windy it wore me out, 328 mile ride. Still we had a great time.


good to see another okie here.

Geart photos Jaketinaboxer...and that is a bison not a buffalo and don't try to pet them...lol. Good looking KLR...I need crash bars on mine...I had a 1987 model for awhile but now have a 2008...just bought it 2 months ago...I am trying to get it all sorted so I can a few long trips around oz. In the second photo you can see our(family land) just above the panniers...I miss family and home...mums cooking mostly. The wind farm...Kimballs ranch is a great place to go for a hike...I use to go rattlesnake and treasure hunting there...the guy that runs the place...Tom...a pommie is a great guy. It has been about a 1 1/2 years since I was back in the states and home. I will try to make it back to Oklahoma near the end of the year...depends on money...lol. I just became an Australian citizen last week...now I have dual citizenship...yahoo!...another thing to mark off the bucket list.
What year is your bike what have you done to it? What tyres(aussie spelling) are you running? When I bought mine it was in pretty bad shape...42,000ks on it and heaps of scratches and bolts missing and well it didn't run...electrical problems. It came with home made pannier racks and pelican type cases for panniers on it. I just did the Eagle mikes doo. The carb has been done except I haven't put the washer on the needle yet...it has a Lexx Exhuast....so far runs pretty good.
Enjoyed the photos of your bike and home...be safe and have fun.
Cheers

What year is your bike? 2007.

What tyres(aussie spelling) are you running?
I have 2 sets of wheels, street set in the pictures are Pirelli Scorpion S/T's
90/90- 21 front and 130/80- 17 rear
Off road (nothing hard core, I have a different bike for that) I run
Continental TKC- 80's same size as the Pirelli's.

What have you done to it?
Corbin reg. seat.
Larry Roeseler progressive front springs.
Cogent Dynamics “Moab” shock.
Pro Taper Fat Bar Risers.
Pro Taper EVO 1 1/8" fat bars. Henry/Reed bend.
Sub frame bolt upgrade/ drill thru top bolt.
Super Brace, fork brace.
Dual Star mirror relocate to clutch perch.
Ram GPS ball mount in old mirror socket.
Pro Moto Billet shark fin and oil cap.
I drilled the oil bolt and J.B. welded a rare earth magnet in it.
Over sized front rotor, both wheels.
I keep a set of pads matched to each disc for each of the 4 wheels.
Aluminum skid plate. I drilled the edge to access the doo adjustment bolt.
Caribou Pelican panniers and top box.
Relocated rear blinkers (in) because of Caribou cases. You can do this without the cases.
Center stand.
IMS foot pegs.
L.E.D. flashing break light.
Relocated tag, top edge against tag light.
Did this after I ripped off the tag and had to trim the broken mount area.
Removed kickstand and clutch "safety" switches.
No cotter key axel nuts.
Happy Trails nurf bar/foot peg combo.
I removed cheese'e Happy Trails foot pegs and installed my original KLR pegs.
Extra bright lifetime head light bulb.
Drilled the carb. slide and added 2 washers to the needle.

Purchased but not installed yet
RaceTech Emulators for front forks.
Complete stainless engine bolt kit.
Eagle Mike's doo and coil spring.

So many upgrades the only way to get the value from
the bike, is to wear it out!

On the other hand, from Wikipedia ...

The American bison (Bison bison), also commonly known as the American buffalo, is a North American species of bison.

I was surprised how technical (loose/sometimes deep gravel on hills) even the beginner trails were. I've got Perelli skorpions (basically a street tire) & I can't believe I didn't go down once. I came VERY close twice though. Did you feel very confident riding there with your more agressive knobbies or did you find it challenging as well?

I half day'd it today at work and spent the afternoon romping around the local OHV park.
I managed to find this hole.




My KLR was blowing bubbles with the exhaust and I melting like a Popsicle before I managed to wrestle the fat lady outta this bog solo. It was a good day! I have never had a bike that was this much fun!
