Best of luck.

I was thinking of the DRZ I sold last night when I was working on the KTM. Mine also had the same rear rack. I had to tear the rack halfway apart, then remove all sorts of fasteners to get the tank and seat off.

The KTM: 2 bolts total to remove the tank & seat. Yes, I need to check the valves more often than on the DRZ, but it's a vastly simpler job to get to them. Not to mention the ability to change jetting without being a magician at geometry.

Speaking of incestuous bikes, the ATK left for another inmates garage last Saturday. I'm still waiting for the RR.

That ATK is a very interesting bike with a very interesting story-and a very large rear sprocket.

Quit making fun of my sprocket. I'm very sensitive that way.

I used that bike for my first 5MOH trip and had an even larger rear sprocket mounted. It was essentially unrideable in first gear.

PS, Eddie does a great job jetting KTM's as well. He may complain a bit about how KTM's aren't his thing, but he still does the crispest jetting around.

Come on, you only had to stand by as I accidentally roosted you with mud... right before I fell over (What did you guys call my move? "The Scorpion"??? )

Gonna try to get as much off-road between now and the time the weather changes, so yeah, I'll be around to ride. Be nice to have someone help me lift my bike. Oh wait... it's only 290lbs... I should be able to lift it on my own.

I was interested (too late) in his DR and he told me he was getting the LQ. I came close myself, seriously...

That thing is so sexy, I would think twice about not buying it...and I am not a KLR guy. Very nice.

Yeah, the fairing mod really makes it look better- she just left me!

But I am stoked about my new machine!

I'll start the clue pics after I load it into the truck tomorrow -

Little KLIM action for CoJoel
LINKY with pictures



KLIM Latitude Giveaway winner visits KLIM HQ


Joel Cooner of Brighton, Colorado didn’t wait for his brand new KLIM Latitude (link) Jacket and Pant to show up on his doorstep before taking it for a ride. No, instead the RMAR Rally prize winner commuted from Colorado to the KLIM HQ in Rigby, Idaho to pick up and ride away with his brand new Latitude Jacket and Pant!

We like his style!

Joel swung in for a tour and while we showed him around we learned he took the long way to get here—from the RMAR rally in Colorado he went to Phoenix, Las Vegas and finally back up to Idaho. His overall vacation trip will take him across 3,500 miles of dirty terrain which he’ll pilot his trusty KLR650 (approaching 30,000 miles of abuse).

The highlights of his trip so far (besides winning a brand new set of KLIM Latitude gear)? Falling asleep under the stars in the middle of the Nevada Desert on a tarp—no tent required—and taking on some challenging trail terrain at the RMAR rally (like the Black Bear Pass trail above Telluride, Colorado shown in the photo).
