Cheers!
If in the New Year if you want help with the valves, I can help you. I've checked mine 3 times and they have been in spec. Takes about 3 easy hours. Pm if interested. Blackfoot will do it for around 200.00 Anderwerks must never need the work as they never call back!

It seems whenever I go to do a valve adjustment, I spot 5 other things that need fixing or replacing and the 3 hr job turns quickly turns into a multi-month ordeal. Started doing the valves on my wife's bike back in October... it's still sitting on the bike stand waiting for me to finish.

^^

Does she ride a KLR?!

Brapp!!!

There has been talks started about doing a north B.C trip next summer. Two weeks of back trail and roads, hauling ass and camping.

Already stoked to ride again!

BTW, takes me about 40 minutes to check/adjust my valves, but I also do it every 4000 KM's or sooner. haha. Still love the XRR.

Horray!

Happy to announce that after a two-year layoff (young kids), I plan on getting back onto my 640 for a few day trips (maybe longer, God (wife) willing!) this year so perhaps on my journeys I will see a few old friends and meet some new ones from this site.

Looking forward to riding West, South and North from Cowtown.

I can't wait!

Good to hear!


On Dec 28th I saw a guy on a KLR in Saskatoon in -22 (near -30 windchill) with NO STUDS and VERY icy roads.

That guy had balls.

I wanted to talk to him but my dad was with me and we had places to be.

X2 on conditions yesterday. Was out in the jeeps. Deepest snow was like ten inches on the back side north facing hills. Minimal ice on trail compared to past years.

I was out shooting too!

Beautiful weather. Around 2:30-3 it got a little cooler, but up until then it was awesome!

Thumb Great pictures!

I am rink-bound till April, but keep the pics coming!

Hoping to go to the Calgary MC show Friday, but it depends on my kids.

Tyler, good to see you are still alive! We will have to hook up this spring for a cocktail!

Went for a rip today. Side roads were snowy, mains had very little ice but lots if gravel. So nice to get out and bang through the gears though.
