New tires!!

TKC80 up front K60 out back. The rear feels good on the road and not bad on gravel. The front is almost scary on turns and awesome in dirt. There's a very distinct moment when the lugs catch in a...

Word on the street says fuel won't be an issue as far as Coldfoot. My plan is to make it as far north as I can. I'll either run into a lake or a DOT guy who tells me to turn around. That being said,...

Hey now thats an Idea!!

Thats a great idea. However, does the lack of truck traffic also mean maintenance on the road will stop?

ABS on/off

As far as I know the only way to "turn off" the abs is to pull the fuses under the seat. I haven't pushed her hard enough to know if it really messes with the handling yet.

Anyone? Anywhere?

Agreed. Run a KLR on the highway and you're gonna burn oil. Keep it on the backroads with low RPMs and it'll never let you down.
