I put 50,000 miles on a 2002. I hate "aftermarket" mods, so I'm not the guy to go to for information on that stuff. I did put a Corbin seat on, since I like my nuts the way they are. It's a good, fun, solidly built bike. Put some money aside to pay for speeding tickets.

Rushmore's parking is done by a private contractor, so the site is free, but parking costs.

The one thing I do like about ANF, the Rocky Gap and the Marionville Trails are ONE way. There is no fear of getting biffed head on by a 'tard. However, every now and then some one will ride backwards.

Also, the quads very rarely if ever, ride the bike loops (as of 5 years ago). The bike loops used to be very quad unfriendly with lots of big rocks and tight areas.

I'm going to be forced off the bike for 1 or 2 months in Dec and Jan so I may try to do an over nighter up there in November if the trails are still open. (close during the fall and spring wet seasons and re-open during the freeze)

What about a chromed milk crate for the rear? That's not a hop-up, just a little bling

That poor wing lives on gravel roads, just like I do!

Hey they make a nice set of 50/50 tires to fit that wing! May wanna look into it!
About 3 years ago I rode the Flint Ridge Adventure ride with some friends. I thought I was all that and a slice of cheese on my KLR. Then a guy(can't remember his name) Rides up on a Honda Pacific Coast 800 and rides with us!! It was a great ride and we had a good time, but that PC800 was right on my tail the whole time.

I will be looking for the proper after market mod advise from my local interwebs and trying like hell to just get it stored for the winter. Getting to be that there time Cant do too much playing this year. Almost got all my klx parts sold, that is helping fund this machine.
Everyone that owns one seems to like it, they are solid bikes.

The only aftermarket I'd suggest are fitment ones, you're tall you might want risers and a set of heated grips will give you some more riding time.

The best accessory is gas.



Talking of WNF and the two-way traffic I was quite surprised last ride (on a Sunday no less) how few quads we saw on the trail, very little traffic period. That's why I'm running Monday creek, I think the vast majority of traffic hovers around the Dorr Run area and all the soup holes down there....I'd just as soon miss that. It would be nice if the trails ran one-way but with a few exceptions (high banked turns) I had plenty of visibility on the main corridor to get out of most anyone's way. Even ran into a couple RZR's, but they were stopped to rest....apparently driving a truck through the trails is exhausting. Your right foot probably cramps or something.

Some guy did the gravel road enduro on a cruiser. Talked to him for a while and even though he never factored in the scoring, he had a blast. He did mention some of the turns causing a slight pucker or two.

just in case anyone needs a reminder that the limiting factor of where a bike will go is most often the rider and not the bike...

You sure the limiting factor isn't the cost of repairing the bike?

You should see the bikes at Pinwalls, don't even looked wrecked and they are being scrapped or sold as salvage. They have a fairly new KLR 650 with only scratches on the tank shroud and front fender for $3k. I can do that just trail riding and not falling over


I saw this post right after a friend emails me and tells me a story about getting drunk and off-roading his '47 Harley!

Back then they probably treated them the same way we treat the average Jap bike. Little did they know that one day those bike would be worth 10 times or more what they paid for them.

You also have to remember Harley wasn't the "designer" bike or "had to have one to be cool" bikes and probably affordable.
