Geek what racks are you using? I know you use Wolfman bags. The reason I ask is I just bought a KLR and looking for racks for it. I have the bags. The other reason I ask is they looking like Happy Trail with their Wolfman adapters. I didn't know if the rolled Velcro would hold up on rough trails. If anyone would know, it would be you.

Drunk Uncle:
They are the hepco-becker racks that came with the 950 in 2005-2006, etc.
I also have the hepco-becker racks on my Mrs. F650GS for her Wolfman bags.

In both cases we just use the velcro wolfman mounts wrapped around the rails - the velcro works surprisingly great!
I've been riding aggressively offroad with the setup for years with zero issues. I even got some spare velcro rings from Wolfman when I first got the bags but I've never needed one; the originals have no sign of wear.

As long as your hoop diameter is small enough the back of the bag won't go through it - you can mount them on pretty much anything using the velcro d-rings.

Keener: I haven't seen anything as fast as 1.4 in e-mount yet. Hopefully soon!

Thank you for your response Geek. I love the KTM, but love my Tiger 955i to much to switch, so I got a KLR for the tough stuff. Please keep the great pictures coming.

Iím also new to adventure touring and duel sport bikes coming off a Vic High-Ball, so itís a learning curve. I picked up the bike only yesterday and rode the 70 miles home. Even with the break in restrictions and knobbies I can tell the performance is just on another level.

The tires are fine. Thereís a slight vagueness to the steering and you can feel the front tire roll slightly, but it took all of 5 miles to get used to it. Of course coming off a 130 front tire I had to get used to the 90 following the road snakes but that too wasn't a problem.

Overall, I am extremely happy and cannot get the smile off my face. Looking forward to a long and happy relationship. Farkles will follow.


New with the old in the background:


NICE BIKE,

Welcome to the asylum!!!

Ride often and ride safe.

I like when riders are skillful enough to let their beasts take a nap on the right place. Like this case, on the clean, soft and refreshing snow...

What are you doing over there?

Ditches have two uses:
1)water drainage
2) passing asshat harleys that are holding up traffic (bonus points if you can actually roost them from the ditch on the way by)

you were supposed to say "I was trying to roost harleys while passing them in the ditch and the snow caught me by surprise".
