Amazing!

Amazing photos!

You once again prove that it is about the journey, not the destination. I love the smaller displacement touring!

Nice Rogue! But does a Bark River Knife really fit in with the KLR ethic? Just kidding!

Simply Awesome!

You demonstrate that it is attitude, not equipment that makes the adventure possible.

I remove a lot of the alcohol from the fuel I use in my motorcycle (and chainsaws etc.) and have found that the high test stuff frequently has as much or more alcohol than the low grade stuff.

It is possible to ride in the standing position, if you are not too tall. Some riders raise the bars a bit to help this.

I ride sitting 90% of the time, standing for bumps, whoops, and to air out.
