Ok that's good information for me and I already have a Corbin dished out seat so 1" it will be when I do it I'll post my thoughts.

The PO lowered my KLR. To keep the geometry the same, you slide the forks up into the triple the same amount your back was lowered.

I've done a good bit of freeway riding and never had a problem.

Upat

A week riding Cannonshot's UPAT (primarily the Big Bike route) in Michigan's Upper Peninsula. KLR handled it all like a champ.


After my one and only fall (submerged log got me when riding through a puddle).

Why do you always want someone on a KLR along on your trip? To carry the firewood of course!

Haha. Actually, they are reversed. The first pic was the "lets go bigger" attempt. When I stopped I had to ask if I made it off the ground. That pig felt like it never left the ground. Don't think ill do that again lol!
