I sent some gear home from Alamosa the day after this. The bike death-wobbled a couple of times.

In true KLR owner form...there must have been a clearance at Ross.

At least the owner added lightening holes to reduce the weight of the plastics.

'85: from an @ longterm parking @ STL; yel, pnw, w'coast, grn cyn, nm,ar, mo.
I sent some stuff home en route, but not enuff!
Finally sent the 'hudson bay' axe home from my buddy's @ Fresno.
I wasn't aware that one couldn't have a campfire often out west due to dry conditions.
I just didn't know any better- it all worked out great, tho!

Circa '93: just the sleeping bag and pad up high [other stuff is that day's collection.]
Everything else in in the 'bags. Of course this is only for 2 wks or so.

It only LOOKS heavy...

Carmacks, YT on June 20, 2012 about 22:30 on the way to D2D.



Calgary, AB on July 5, 2012 headed back home to Houston, Texas - I got MUCH better at packing

My poor RXS100 loaded down with stuff during a house move:



It's mostly books in there, v heavy. It copes with whatever you through at it, fantastically tough little bike. Two-up down a steep dual-carriageway hill (emphasis on the steep) with my pillion carrying a heavy backpack saw 72mph on the speedo. I was laughing like a loon.
