The safety rules are pretty simple (safety first, always), and there will be a .22 or two, which is very friendly - I've a single shot one I could bring. Bring hearing and eye protection - shatterproof lenses and ear plugs or muffs (I've extra muffs).

Full face helmets are not recommended

Todays adventure took us to Chicken Corners, I was hoping to provide many pictures, however due to a technical problem, my camera had no memory card and I was unable to take photos.... (left the card in the computer), had to use the Iphone.

From Hurah Pass, looking over the Colorado River..... of in the distance, somewhere, Thelma and Louise drove the car over the cliff!!!!



2whlrider provided me with a couple of action shots, where I am hanging on to the bike for dear life.... everytime I start to get a little comfortable.... more sand, I hate sand!!!!

You are right, bad question to ask, I take it back thereby removing any negative vibes and replacing them with only pleasant thoughts, like kittens drinking milk from a dish.

So far, I've got the doo and rotor bolt replacement, valves and shims. Any and all input shall be very appreciated!

Its a KLR.....change the oil, and put gas in it.
Then drive it around the world.



On a semi-serious note...tires??
Never start a 5000km tour with 1000k of tread left.

I haven't had a dishwasher ever since then.

Not much sense having a dishwasher if you can't put engine parts in it!

Couldn't resist... had to go play in the snow a bit at Beaudry Park and get the bike muddy. What's all that white stuff!
