This mod keeps me safe, if not warm and fuzzy when I'm out riding. Not sure it's better than a gun, but way cheaper.

Cool2 Cycle Gear 12volt plug in

I also added a 12 volt plug in to Big Bear (name my wife gave my KLR) that I really like. It has a waterproof cover and only cost me $9.95 (it was on sale half off). The downside, is that it was a...

Cool2 Marlin Time/Temp First impression

You seem to be correct. After a day of riding here in mid 70's temp with no clouds and lots of sun, the temp reading was off by about 5 degrees. I'm not sure if the sun with black plastic was the...

Cry Clocks

Never thought it would be so hard to find a clock/thermometer that was easily readable, waterproof, and simple to use.

Looks like I may do some watch shopping for now.:eek1

Question Sugar Sand with a passenger

By the way, any suggestions on sugar sand with a passenger? It gets a little ugly when she is back there (don't tell her I said that! :D ), but so far we have kept it upright. I would love to speed...

Question Center Stand

I bought my son a 2012 KLX 250, and we are riding very simple dirt roads. Nothing extreme, sugar sand here in Florida being the worst of it.

KLR Tank Bag/Bra

Great information. I didn't think about a spill, so I will forgo the mirror mount. Also, in the Florida sand, I need to do some standing on the bike, so another great tip. So glad I asked.
