Do you sleep walk?


[quote=Sito] I would like to ride with you guys on Sat. Sunday is no good for me. I'm just trying to figure out where I'm going to end up at the end of Sat ride? Anyone else want to do Sat ride with me then split from the group around 4ish and head back for home? [quote]

Artboy didn't ride last week, he might be itchin to take out the GS. Try the other local FFs such as Buenfeelings, CrazyJohn, StuCazzo, Nowwhat, Oni, WzlTech, Dunerat, etc....Design4D likewise likes long rides!

PM me with your email, if you need the gpx file!

You're a stud, you can do the entire ride on bare rims.

Most of the loose stuff will be on the flatter sections. Some exceptions are a few switchbacks and Crossover. In general the more difficult sections are the final dirt portions of each day. I'd say it's more rocky and steep than loose and steep. Except for the portions that are rocky and loose and steep (and wet).

Jeff has ridden all the dirt sections with me and he kicks my TKC 80 clad GSA ass on his GS with worn out Tourances. Chalk that up to pilot skill, lack of good sense and huge balls. Still, he's opted to purchase spoked wheels and TKC 80s before the ride. The cracked mag rims and 2-inch bubble on the Tourances probably didn't influence his decision.

You'll be fine on whatever tire you ride (with the possible exceptions of those high-speed, off-camber, wet, steep, loose, technical, muddy, ledgy, log-infested, cliff-edged, rutted out, rocky, single-track whoop sections that still have snow on them).... I'm hooked on the TKC 80s.

I think you might have mis-read h8chains' message. I think he really does have an extra bed on Saturday. His phone number is somewhere in his fairly recent messages in the email chain, give him a call and check on the extra bed.

BTW, h8chains loves people who belch and fart, it gives him something in common.

Possible problem

Last night my bike (07' KLR650) started to vibrate real bad.
I need to look into this tonight or I may have a bigger problem this weekend.
Any ideas what could cause this?
The bike runs - it's just real rough and sounds a little different than normal.

Thanks for any ideas you have,

Woody

Did you tell it what you were going to do it this weekend? May be it's just sceered?
Sorry couldn't resist.
Did you post in thumpers and/or pm CA Stu, I don't think there is much about a KLR he doesn't know?
Could be the counter balancer or the framus valve for all I know.

This is making it official. It looks doable now.

IN.

I'm tiring of the splinters in my rump.

And

I can't pick up the tiger this week end.

Sheeeeeeeeit

My local Kawi shop (Kolbe Cycles) is backed up 5-6 days before they can work on my bike.
Looks like I may have to bail out on this trip.

Any KLR guru's in the San Fernando Valley?

SHIT!

When you get the muffler bearing out you should have access to the framus valve. Or is that visa versa.

I need a tool to remove the flux capacitor first so I can get to the muffler bearing.
