Anyone got any plans for riding on the 17th?? I finally have a free Sunday! The above ride sure looked fun. I have a newly rebuilt shock with heavier spring on the KLR, so I would like to test it out.

Hmmm. A St Patrick's day ride. How about a RTCB? (Ride To Corned Beef).

I'm in if it involves food.

I think John Deere green would be appropriate. I may actually have a can of that in my garage somewhere, just collecting dust.

It was given to me by a neighbor that moved, so I think it meets the KLR financial standards (IT WAS FREE)! I don't even know if the spray can works.

Replacing the stock rear shock/spring on my Strom with a nice Elka 3-way tomorrow! Hopefully that will keep the rear end planted on bumpy dirt/gravel roads when I'm dodging flying gas cans. :)

On the one hand, assisting VA.C. with his errant KLR parts and gas can on our ride was a great and noble thing...but in the big picture...all your really did was deprive the next cheap KLR rider to pass that way of a chance to get some "road farkles"
