Is there by chance a GPS of the route available? I have another person who wants to go, but will not be able to get there until just before noon. If nothing else, if you could tell me, or PM me the lunch location, I can have him meet us there.

Ricochet plate, Pelican box and Double Take mirror have been added since this picture was taken right after I painted it with Duraliner with a brush. Handguards are in the mail and then I am done screwing with it.
from a fellow KLR rider, nice bike!

Thanks Matt, yours was one of the bikes I scrutinized while contemplating the trade.

My first gravel / dirt experience

I ventured out this morning leaving Ketteirng and headed towards Graits / Farmersville. My goal was to find Anthony Rd. / Lower Gratis Rd. in search of my first contact with dirt / gravel / "off-road" riding. I found Anthony Rd. and its one lane bridge. Due to the fact that it rained all day Saturday this gravel / dirt road was more of a mud road! I went through this @ 10 mph, this was the first time I have experienced less than ideal traction. The street tires on my F650 are not ideal for this terrain but I went slow and it was fun. It was a great experience and I now want to throw dual sport rubber on my ST, or invest in a KLR or TW......for Montgomery County this road is "adventurous"

Glad you were able to find it. That creek is rideable when the water is down and there are some sandy area's between the road and creek that are fun. -Mike

Glad to see you out getting dirty, Squid. Looking forward to meeting you, hoping you can come down east and ride Tar Hollow someday.

Mike, thanks again. This road was exactly what I was looking for. I wish we had more roads around like this one. Problem is I will have to find a solution to dual sport tires. The F650ST I have is straight street vs. the F650 (Fundoro) which has a 19" front and there are endless dual sport / dirt tires. Anyone know what I can do? Rears are easy to find but my Front 100/90X18 I have not found a single (front) dual sport in that size. There are a few (rears) that are that side, but then I can't find a matching pair for the front and rear which is 130/80X17.

Thanks! This is my third year riding so I have a lot to learn.

I'm wanting to get the XR out and get it dirty tomorrow or tuesday (or both).

Anyone up for some dual sporting? I'd prefer to go to Danville as I've only ever ridden up that way once, but I'll go to Tar Hollow if necessary.

I went on the first part of the enduro today, did the first three check points, and was on very familiar roads, so I cut out. I had not done an enduro, but it was like a Tulip rally, (which I have done many times,) except in a Tulip you have a navigator and all you have to do is pay attention and drive. If I do it again, I would want a better way to hold the route instructions, and I would want a timer I could see and reset. I got tired of always having to look down and find the instructions.

I think the TKC 80 might be available in a rear size that equates to your front size (and the rear is available also):
3.50 - 18 M/C 62S TT M+S
http://www.conti-online.com/generator/www/de/en/continental/motorcycle/themes/motorcycletires/enduro/tkc_80/tkc_80_en.html

Several of the KLR650 guys are running these on the front, I think.

Last year when I did it there were enough people I just followed others on my time. Sorry you had a bad ride, but I bet it beat push mowing and pounding on a KLR 650 bolt.
