Probably has a lot to do with it, with a population that size there's bound to be a few idiots.

Dunno about that Jack, I wave to everyone; even a dude on a scooter the other day, why not eh?

As for the KLR love, maybe its because they're cheap? Maybe its because they're simple, easy to work on? Maybe it's because of their range, load, durability or reliability? Maybe its due to the array of farkles? Honestly, not too sure why?

If I didn't have what I have, I'd probably have one, you lucky bastard.

Yep, there's always that. A shame they aren't more expensive really. Kawasaki should raise their prices; fewer of them on the road wouldn't be so bad eh.

Resurrecting an old thread here, but I didn't get the feeling that there was a clear answer. I would also like to ride up to Leechtown some time in the next month or two with my sidecar, but I'd hate to spend an afternoon riding down dead-ends and gated roads.

Has anyone made it up to Leechtown lately? What route did you take? What are the road conditions and is there room enough for a sidecar to make it up?

And if there is absolutely no way to do it, can anyone recommend an alternative afternoon ride somewhere remote/historical/unique?
