What's the deal with KLR's and flat batteries on rides?

jumped on the pavement, the next trail us just a short hop away; the clouds tell me there won't be any rain....



looking down at the lake where some girls were sunbathing topless... sorry no pics..against posting rules...



perhaps randy captured it on his vidcam







from the trail one can walk down to this cove





foulplug



a little section of silverwood lake



too early to have a bad day...



not one of us



we're moving again




quads and rhinos were part of the mix




ktmami looking good















i see the forest now...






the world famous nOOb....








roger's blue ktm 990 died on the trail and here it's alive again... not sure what happened?????



even at a higher elevation, a shade is always nice



regrouped, minor bike adjustment, and did a head count.. ; hey jim how are the MEFO treating you????

Seems like many Harley's do !

I'm not either. I was just teasing. I like that accessory as well. Plus Harley riders make cars much more aware of motorcycles on the road. Not to mention, they are kind of like moses when you get behind them spitting lanes.

I'm not a KLR basher either. But today I am playing one on this thread.

I think any bike you ride is great, for whatever reason you ride it.

That's why I didn't do Cleghorn with the rest of the guys.... that's not the bike for that kind of stuff, & certainly not with those tires

My plan was to ride out there, ride some roads... meet the guys for lunch, ride some roads back to McDs

Lonestar decided to join me so we rode over to Big Bear while the guys were having their dirt adventure, decided to take in a dirt road (2N10 & 2N08) managed that bit without incident...

After lunch we looked at a map & consulted with Sito... decided to head back to McDs via the 173 to the 138 rather than back the way we came.... the map I was looking at showed that road as being paved

when we discovered that the road turned to dirt, we decided to go ahead & give it a try... wasn't too bad, except for that one bit of sand

That sounds fun too. Sorry you fell, but at least you didn't go over the edge this time. Are you going to go with more aggressive tread on your next set of tires (soon)? Or are you going to keep that bike just for the road?

Yes, I know I need new tires soon, & probably will be looking for something with a slightly more aggressive tread, but I did get that bike primarily for the road.... it just seems that there are these dirt roads sometimes

before this rr get hijacked by bike accessories... let me continue on...



more dirt




then pavement; lunch is 8 miles away




lake arrowhead







the town was bustling with tourist




tough to get a parking space




if you're skinny and like tiny servings....this is the place....



bob and cathy showed up about the same time



my $7 bite size lunch... ; but it was very good...



all it takes is one motion



sito and jim were quick to clear the table...




sometimes you have to inhale the flavor to make it last..



cathy and bob were still waiting for theirs, while chris and randy got nothing much to show.

after lunch, planning the next route



i see celsius........apparently the town wants to give the village an alpine touch...



adventure pass required in the staging area



then on a quad trail..



up going vehicle gets the priority



this one looks like it lost the front end..




there's a reason why the rhinos avoid this hill climb




chris was elated to see KTMs have limits too...




give the man a little rest and he'll have his revenge




vengeance and wohooo... it's tougher than it looks..




randyM




foulplug




jim prefers the less beaten path




thanks to jl...








nice form there randy


last pic before the batt on my camera went dead...




need to get a spare charged battery before the next ride. lots of good photo ops were missed....

hope you enjoyed the rr and thanks for reading.

it was a wonderful ride.....covered a lot of dirt, discovered new trails, built up my riding confidence and skill, no one got hurt, no carnage, good lunch, able to get regular PPs and new riders to come out, and beautifull weather of course....and i didn't get wet in the rain on the way home..

we did it again, and thanks to all for making our weekend great....

I saw a yellow GS and another BMW (650?) by the Starbucks in Big Bear yesterday. It looked like they had seen some dirt. One of you guys?
