Geat ride & congratulations..1000+ miles, now that is something. Those roads look ideal for that sort of milage.

I've done a couple of 1000km days on my KLR that I really enjoyed... 1000 miles , now you got me thinking.

Loved reading your ride report and congrats on your accomplishment. Any plans to do a BB1500?

I've been dreaming about an IBA ride for years. I really need to just get off my lazy butt and ride.

Uhhh, not so much... Those guys are nuts! Although the 48 in 10 and Four Corners rides are intriguing...

Thanks! The roads were perfect and weather couldn't have been better. 1,000KM on a KLR? Now that’s a haul.

Thanks Amsterdamm, I do have one planned this fall but it’s more out of necessity than bragging rights… Phoenix to N’awlins followed by barley and hops therapy for a day or two.

About 38 mpg with a heavy throttle hand and eco mode off. Cruising the Connie gets about 43 mpg with eco on and keeping it around 75/80 mph.
