What time do we roll out from ZZr's? I am thinkin 10:00 am or so. I will be there! I am bringing all my gear, I don' t like carrying a tent and bag and stove etc and not use it, but who knows for sure eh? The weather looks like we may get a rinse now and then.Sometimes you hafta just go out and take some bad weather and suffer a bit. Be cold and wet for a while. It'll make your nice warm chair at home feel that much better, its only a couple days.Step out of the comfort zone and be in the elements kinda thing.I am looking forward to making the big fire on the beach actually.Last year too dry-this year too wet! There is no bad weather, just poor gear!

Yea, I'll keep the camping gear on board, but if it'a too cold and nasty, it's hotel time.

Need a Centre Stand.......anyone??

Hey all,
Looks like I"m adding a few things to my ride. I'm going to try that Afrika seat, Tank Guard Bags, larger rear rack, Large rear hard bag from JCWittney, change my fork springs and try their MEFO Tires but they are all out of centre stands at KLR650.com........any ideas where to get a good one?

After all that, I'm not sure there is much else I can do to this bike.

For anyone considering the taller windshield, I think I'm going to try putting the short one back on......I'm getting a lot of buffetting right now.

PM me if you know a good line on a centre stand.
thanks,
Kyle

Only one more sleep, people! Or, in my case no sleep, I'll be comng into this ride off night shift.

Be good to meet all of you.

Look for the house that looks like hillbilly heaven, with a car up on jackstands in the driveway.

19C and sunny here right now...with a strong west wind...you guys coming in from the west should have good ride in.

I got off work at 5am, slep for acouple hours and started to put the new subframe under Wifey's car....it's 1:00 now, I'd better get a few hours sleep before work!
