My Dash

Think this Dash is to busy?
The GPSMAP60CSx on left is for elevation, compass etc. The Garman Nuvi550 is for regular GPS use.
Clock, Thermometer, Voltage ind., and my camera case holder on right.
Cig. lighter socket to power the Nuvi GPS. The GPSMAP60 runs all day on batteries.

The air horns have been replaced with a set from Harbor Freight. The air ones really got attention when I needed to get through to a cage driver.

KLX250s



My goal with this bike was to make it idiot (me) proof. I wanted to be able to take it out by myself and not have to worry about compromising the bike somehow so I can't get back home. I also wanted to be able to do some motocamping touring. My friends and I did a short 300 miles/3 day trip this August. We had a blast. Since that trip, I decided to re-spring the bike based on my weight and the weight of camping gear. I can't wait until the next trip, but it will probably be next year.

You'll notice I haven't done anything to add any performance. I'm pretty happy with the performance it has stock. I don't need to take it on the highway, I have an FZ6 if I want to do that. I may end up changing the CS at some point to get a little more power in the lower gears for offroad, but so far I've been happy with it (except in sand, I hate sand).

Mods:

Protection:

Riccchet Skid plate
Unabiker Radiator Guards
Tusk hanguards + spoilers
Cyclerack (it's pretty good protection to the rear of the bike in a drop)
Motion Pro Lite Loc's

Comfort:

Seat Concepts- way better than stock. It doesn't give me the feeling that it's tearing me in half.
Moto Pro - Rear Shock Spring and Fork Springs

Tires:
D606 Rear
Pirelli Scorpion (haven't installed)

Range:
2 gal. Rotopax tank + Mount

Controls:
Pro-Taper SE bars
Pro taper pillow top grips
RAM mount for GPS

Engine:
Krieger MCCT

Does anyone like sand? At least you stayed upright.

Do you have a navigator , or copilot, to keep track of all those instruments?

If ya have to ask if two watches and two GPSs is too much...I think you have your answer. Seriously though, my Delorme toggles between the map and stats you mentioned using one button, time is displayed on the top.

Not even gonna comment on the guy with 5 GPSs AND an iphone...incase they all fail you can resort to the paper map in the tank bag. The mounts alone must cost over $150.

Nice bike. I like the KLX. I think the 351 will be the perfect, small dual-sport once we get the FI version most of the world already has.

Yeah, it's not hard to pick up. The Tiger actually did amazingly well. This was a tough ride for us. Lots of steep, loose rocky hills and descents. Several riders broke bones, one guy broke his leg and rode 15km out of the bush to the Boston Bar ambulance station with his leg splinted with branches and electrical tape. The ambulance attendants were quite impressed with the splint.
