Well, not real informative but moderately entertaining.
this is after waking up from a destructive night run and getting the KLR back to "rideable" condition with a very sore shoulder. at the end my buddy breaks an axle and we turn back. shortly after I break subframe bolts.

KLR ingenuity. Good job JT.

My kids and I watched your video last night. My 8 year old asked when we could ride that track.

Bought a new bike

I traded in my '04 KTM 200 EXC, for a '14 250 XCW at Motocity. Added a skidplate, some real handguards, pipe guard, spark arrestor, brake light and mirror. Not a real ADV bike by any means, just my new epic singletrack machine. Took it out for a spin last Monday morning, 75 degrees, breeze, light rainshowers. It was a perfect break in ride, in perfect conditions. I got some video with the GoPro, and about 2:50 in, got the first wreck out of the way.
