I use a Cruz tools gauge with a flexible line on it, available from Dennis Kirk, and other places I'm sure.

It is a well made gauge, I like it a lot.

EDIT: Basically the same one Pinecone just posted. Pinecone is fabbo.


Big Zed runs very nicely, had a nice test ride today, all is well with that bike again. Pretty happy about that.

Not sure how long Moon Motorsports has been on the map of dealerships for Motus, might have a chance to see one next year?

Moon is probably one of the best dealerships to handle Motus. Coolio.

The Kid gave me a ring after I left and we met out here. We rode down around Henderson and then down to St. Peter. Stopped at Whiskey River for lunch. Rode East damn near to HWY 35 and I came back home. He's headed to Rochester.

Didn't get any pictures, but had a good ride!

Tyres are good you know. Those Michelin T63s are good on KLRs, and relatively inexpensive. They may not be the BEST tyre, but they are very good, and 67 bucks per tyre as opposed to over a hunert for other types.

They help prevent

I'm amazed how well they grip on ice.

Did not last long. The sun is out again and the roads are almost dried off.
