A good summary Adam! Hope the KLR does not sell before BQF and that it runs this year

That was me after I hit the first water puddle a bit fast.

I can confirm the KLR will pull two full grown men and a husaberg with front and rear wheels locked up to about 40mph

It's a tractor

It might be wrong but it was the norm for our group.

One of the best days on EG i've ever had, out of 300 years' worth.

Seems that KLR tow vehicle needed some love midway across the range.

Perfect opportunity for some gazoonie to air out the front wheel on his non-scooter




Nobody i know . I ride by the Rules

OK, fair's fair. Indeed Dallas' KLR did need some love before the day was over, it was the clutch safety switch that was acting up IIRC.


But yeah--that was a stellar day on EG, no doubt about it...hell it was only 200 years ago
