The headlight throw on my KLR was MAYBE 20' - felt like you were outrunning the light at about 20mph.

I know KLRs have notoriously bad headlights, but mine seemed extra sucky.

I got my KLR in a trade. It was twisted from a crash. The headlight was really bad. I bought a new stay from a guy on KLR650.net and put it on the other night. The light is is set perfect now. And its not that bad. Take a 10 mm wrench and find the bolt under the light. It is not going up and down. But from the clutch side to throttle. Loosen it and adjust the light. You will be surprised how good the light can be. It gives a nice even spread across teh road. If it were just a touch brighter it would be perfect. Before my low beam was slightly higher then my high be should be. Now its nice.

Yeah I know. Not the best style. But it did not stop me from blowing by a bunch of people on the brakes and turns. This was the first couple of laps. I was less then confident in my tires....

New Tag



one week ago this shot was not possible. One week from now it may be impossible again. This ancient north Wilkes Barre factory was empty for as long as I have been in pa. It looked like something from the little rascals. I rode through there often. It felt like driving thru the 20s. I hope it's still standing by the end of the day.

I maybe crazy, but this one is my hero. He actually lost me on the track. Granted it was in traffic. But he got away.

Not a clue

Does the Little Rascals have anything to do with the clue? Cause I'm clueless, again!

It's a nice lean - why does it need to be exaggerated to nearly horizontal?

Just a pet peeve - no judgments or criticism intended.

Maybe they're going up a really steep hill.

I did not take this one obviously. But I too tilt a little when shooting. But this is ridiculous. It was taken by a Poacher photographer.

Nope. The only clue is North Wilkes Barre. The square to General. It's easy to see. Just look up and drive around. The net won't help you. You gotta ride to find this one. But the shot did come from my iPhone. So the PC might help.

Beers

Me too. Just got done mowing, which is at least a 4 beer task. Going to hit the sack soon, get up early for a ride. Hope to go taggin', but I can see the pic with the headlights now, from some young dillweed night tagger! Nut Balls.
I know where they live, and if the tag's gone, I'm gonna be pounding on their door at 6:am!
Have a good night, and beware.
