Got a good video on doing wheels, and other stuff.

There's a dealer for it in Reynoldsburg, but he and I got into it many years ago when I told him the welds he was doing on cages were shite and informed his customers they were unsafe( which they really learned when they tried to tech the cars and were tossed out of National Trails), so I don't believe I can go to him for it.....

After months of waffling, I finally made a decision in regards to saddle bags. I had really wanted aluminum cases, but could not find them (or make them) for a reasonable price. Instead, I went with the new Monarch Pass Saddle Bags. They have the same capacity as the Expedition Dry Saddle Bags, but at 75% of the cost. The lack of waterproofing is no concern. None of my backpacks are waterproof and I've managed to get by for years with the help of zip-lock bags.

I also mounted a new "top box." It looks like ass, but will let me pack the bulkier items (ie, sleeping bag, tent, etc) without concern.

If everything stays on track, I leave for Deals Gap on Sunday.

Today I learned that people will paint essentially new performance cars with what I thought was reserved for Grandpa's pliers handles. Thanks thread! Seriously, look through the forums of that website- Nissan GT-r's, BMW m's, Audi's.

I say do it. Now I want to change my red and black KLR to the 2012 Blue/white color scheme.

No, I said it looked bad, like ass.

That whole flat black, OD green look on new vehicles is lame in my opinion. And doing it with that plastic stuff is even lamer, the fact that it can just be peeled off shows that it's a super copied fad. If you are going to change the paint on an expensive car to show how baller you are, at least have the guts to use real paint and have some commitment....

I think I'm going to give it a shot, they have a Kawi green looking color, which is my favorite on the Versys, if it works well, I may do my WR in classic Yammy yellow with speed blocks.....

2 10L dry bags fit almost perfect if packed a bit light. OR stuff is on clearance right now, lightweights can be picked up for less than 10 bucks delivered. That weight conforms best . I think in have a couple if you need some and can't get stuff before ya leave. PM me Wet shit sucks

You'll like the 606

606

The 606 is the tire I use on my long off road trips. Great both on and off road. Well worth the money.....my two cents.

Yep, I've used the D606's on my KLR and WRR. They are not as good as trackmasters in the mud though.

I have a 606 on my WRR and the CRF has a trakmaster. The trakmaster does better in soupy, crappy mud, but everywhere else the 606 is hands down the better tire. In curves, the 606 feels a lot more confidence inspiring and predictable than the trakmaster by far.

Yeah, I agree. The D606 is a beefier tire and should last longer too vs trakmaster.
