We rode about 6 miles down this two-track and found this view. This is Shell Canyon.

I haven't figured out how to get much printed words in here either. All in due time I hope.

Anyway, the picture is of Shell Canyon in the Big Horn Mountains of Wyoming. The view is looking southwest. It is a beautiful area to ride in.

Thanks for the help.

OK. Got all the Krylon stripped off the tank and started over. A few coats of primer, sanded to 800, then several coats of color, sanded to 1000 and then several coats of clear sanded to 1500. I still need to wait for the paint to cure well then do a finish sand and buff it out with compound but here is the tank and then back on the bike. This finish is alot more durable than what the Krylon was showing me and feel comfortable it will take some abuse...

Thanks! Lets see how it holds up after the next drop. Couldn't sand out the Krylon, it just peeled away.....

NF-11 near Sisters, OR

Looks like a nice photo thread! I'll add my humble example, from NF-11 in Oregon. A nice day ride last fall, heading North-ish from Sisters.

I worked at that t-mobile building for a couple weeks last April! I was traveling from GA (I'm an electrician) and I think I remember seeing a klr parked outside... Wasn't farkled though I don't think... Wish I had my bike while I was up... Err over there.

Edit: my bike looked exactly like yours too before I painted some camo on it.

serious rubber you got. They look one level more aggressive than Continentals?

DOT knobbies?

You also "neutered" the plastic non-sense below the back fender. Nice. Simplifies things back there.
