Delle north around Lakeside Mtns to Grassy Mtns and back? Or loop the Cedar mtn wilderness from the same place, where the hills have eyes.

Route

Finding the route is half the fun IMO... but, get a topo map. Leave from Delle and head to the west, follow the foothills south to a geo feature called White Rocks. One of the passes will take you over the cedar mtns to the west side and head north and make it a loop.

I may be good for a Friday ride.

Newbie

Been looking at bikes and considering the dual sport world over the past couple of years. Always coming back to the KLR. I finally pulled the trigger on a used one, good deal on it. Wanted one that was already upgraded some so I wouldn't have to worry about saving money here and there for things. I'm glad the a different guy hosed me a few weeks earlier and sold someone else the bike the night before he said I could have it. Same years, crash bars and that was about it and more mileage.

One thing I've found out: KLR's, they're not pigs they're freak'n Kaws!

I'm excited for it!

Here's my ride the way it came, I don't think I left anything out. Just need to start riding.

08
8k miles
Protaper Handlebars (currently has stock)
Warp9 wheels with Dunlop D606 (stock running stock with Kenda 270s)
Crash Bars
Aftermarket Skid plate
Saddle bag rack
Wolfman Saddle bags
Wolfman Tankbag
New clutch
14t sprocket (plus stock)
Acrebis handguards
RaceTech emulators and springs on front
Nitron 3way shock with hydraulic preload

I know shit about the KLR, except that there is a doohickie thing that you didn't mention... You probably got hosed, or the seller would have mentioned it.

Welcome...

Took both the doohickie and the thermobob into account prior to buying. Cheap and easy to do, that will be what I do in the spring. Also took into account that 08s are known to burn some oil.

Me and the SO will be in Moab Friday to Sunday doing some hiking mountain biking and exploring if anyone is down that way and wants to grab a beer or whatnot. Happy Thanksgiving!

My son took the Wildcat up to the B to put some break-in miles on the new motor.
I got my cast off two days ago so I was able to take a quad with a medical boot. Yay!
