New KLIM gear

Anyone notice that KLIM introduced a new jacket and pant this week along with a Hi Viz version of the Badlands Pro and Lattitude jackets? I am liking this hi viz stuff, now we need to find out when it will be available. I finally broke down and ordered the Traverse pants for commuting.

If that's the place next door to the Varsity Theater it is very good.

Also, LAC @ the Depot has been closed for a while. There is one in the SunRay Center, but like almost all chains I certainly can't recommend it.

I am not a follower of Klim, being a convert to the ways of the Stitch, and am therefore not allowed to voice positive things about any other brand of gear any more.

That said, I have always liked Klim gear, and thought it was well made. I haven't looked at their current line up though.

Finally got around to tracking down and replacing the leaking fuel line on my Vstrom. Was actually quite easy to fix and only cost about $8. Now if I can just find the extra air filter that seems to have been lost in my move.

Can hardly wait to get out riding on ice free streets again.

That's good. Bursting into flames is so.......stressful. Believe me, I know.

Indeed. Very much looking forward to it.

Looks like a fun trip, but it's a shame what they did to that Superior combo.

It looks interesting but the kit costs as much as two used sleds with a trailer
Impression: Front ski grabs to good so back washes out on ice but still fun.

Dedicated snow machine: I like the bike feel(extreme angles) in turns. You need to control the bike not get on and ride(like a sled). Since my XR is street legal and has motorcycle title, I couldn't get snowmobile trail pass. My understanding is if you have a non-street legal title, you just give up the motorcycle title and register it as a sled and they will allow it on trails.

Putting front tire on: My nephew hill climbs so we will see how it does!

Cost: $3000 delivered(from Canada) but keeps XR going all year. I figure why store something half the year, just to bring out another mechanical machine that sat around the other half of the year. 2 older sleds and trailer to maintain, No thank you!

$3000 is not too bad I suppose. I thought they were more like $5000. I like the concept, it looks like a ton of fun.

5 yrs ago there was a guy(in MN) selling them for around $5000 and there are two other brands selling for around 5000 also. The Explorer kit is made by AD Bovin(maker of the SnowHawk) out of Canada.

Geez, the BS needs a bump!

Anybody know if there is a place to park the bikes at the Metrodome for the supercross?

FYI you can get pit passes after March 25 at Subway. Save $10 bucks.
