Big balls + busted KLR + potential danger = I'm in.

Just perused your Flikr set from this ride. I'll have to say, I'm highly disappointed.

You take a girl to the sunny climate of Baja and we get not one... nada... zilch... bikini shot.

I'd almost ask if it were because you all are :ymca, but then I remember "Freckles".

You got a keeper in that one dude. Hang on to her.

I wouldn't worry about how you nearly killed your friends in Baja if you can't get that stinken short fixed.

That's a major bummer but a least this happened at the begining of your trip while you all were still in the states where you can get some help.

By the way I kept blownin fuses in my KLR until I changed out the glass bussman fuse holders and replaced them with the blade type fuse holders. You can buy those at any local Autozone for couple bucks.

Is that a record?

I am just wondering if killing a KLR in the first hour is a record? I can't wait to hear what happened once you got rolling again. Sweet.

Subscribed. This is an inauspicious beginning. And I might have to rethink buying a KLR.
