Covelo and back

I headed out early (9'ish) on Monday for a ride out hiway 36 to Mad River for lunch,played super-moto some on 36,then took Van Duzen road to Kettenpom, and through there to Covelo for an ice tea and a snacker,then rode 162/FH7 back towards the valley. Clouds covered up the sun,it cooled down pretty nice at 6000'

Took a few pics but not a lot to take pics of in Covelo,pretty quiet place.
Nice 350 mile loop all in all.

Gas wasnt an issue,I figure I can go 200 miles on the DR . Mad River doesnt usually have gas, its 100 miles to there from Red Bluff,Kettenpom has gas at 5.00 a gallon in a pinch,Covelo has gas at good prices. Its about 60 miles from Mad River to Covelo taking Van Duzen road .

I wouldnt mind having a bigger tank on the DR sometimes though. 4.9 is what it holds now.

Question KLR Head Needed

Hi all, I ran across stranded riders from Canada who have a KLR with a bad cam shaft. If anyone has a head for an 07+ KLR please contact Oobus as the bike is at his ranch.

Question KLR 650 Head Needed ASAP

Long shot but looking for a head for a 2011 Klr 650. Long story short - I have two Canadian Strays at my place and one of their bikes ate the exhaust cam and munched the head.
Don't know if any of the local shops will have one, everything is closed for the night.

BTW I'm in Corning by the truckstops.

Matt

Damn Joe beat me to it!
