Oh, c'mon, the KLR is in a power-to-weight class all on it's own. It has no competition on the scales.

Truth be told, you can ride what ever you want.

It's not like we're racing for real.

I found the T dub I had was more fun on the ice than anywhere else I rode it.
Might have to find another.

Perfect!! With your riding skill, weight, and bike I was worried you'd be untouchable. Now I'm feeling pretty good about my chances to make some passes on you in the right handers. I just need to make sure to do it on the inside.

I seen guys fill in the other side of left only tires and use them. They obviously aren't as good as ones that are built to go both ways but they work reasonably well. We usually run counterclockwise so there are more lefts than rights anyway.
