Thanks for your input. Adjustable seems the way to go for me.

Thanks. The KLX is a fun bike to trail ride on. Seems light compared to the KLR.

2whl, that KLX looks pretty darn clean! Great photos. Thanks for sharing. Dumb questions. Is the KLX a 650? Is there a carwash on that trail? LOL

Say, Skysailor...I think there is a forum devoted to dumb questions on this site, isn't there?

Of course there is, but the mods kicked my sorry ass out for asking questions deemed too dumb even for that forum.

I thought someone would comment on how clean my bike was. It usually comes out of the bush covered in mud but much to my surprise the usual wet areas were all dried up.
I'll post a pic of it dirty next time.

As for your dumb question...it is a KLX250S.

There is another guy in town with a blue KLR with similar hard bags and the same blue jacket as me.
If it didn't have the hard bags on it wasn't me.

I saw you last week(?) on Noter Dame apporching McPhillips.
No hard bags on that bike.

Me on Notre Dame? lunch time, it could be.

I enjoy seeing other folks photos, and having one or two with the author in there adds depth (or mirth).

Finally, some free WiFi.
Just short note to let you all know the fine adventure is proceeding. Not exactly to plan, but close enough.

Currently in Thunder Bay tonite. Plan on visiting with my father tomorrow with Thursday for the return trip to the Peg.

Once I get home, I will put together a ride report.

I should be able to make lunch Friday. Heading out tomorrow morning.
Big wind today so my plan to visit and rest is working. Met up with my Dad, lunch with North Rider at the Mad House a short visit with an old friend.
Now I am relaxing with the Danes... Two dogs with an aggregate weight of just over 260#s. Sorry no pics from the iPod, will need to work on that skill.

Hello again

I have posted on this thread a few times and have wanted to come out for lunch one of these weeks and meet some of you. Anyway I am leaving tomorrow morning at 3am and am going to attempt an Iron Butt SS1000 by going to St. Louis. I will be tweeting some of it for my family and friends and I thought some of you might like to follow along on my ride as well. My twitter account is @walub. Feel free to follow. I just got a fancy new phone and will be posting pictures and maybe a video or to. I just thought some of you might be interested.
