Nice pics Mike. Looks like the ride home was a little interesting.

Buff, here is a link that will help you in your quest to post pics. I personally use option 2.

First get a pic hosting site if you don't have one. Smugmug works really well. With Smugmug, you can just copy and paste a photo right in.

But no matter who you have as a hosting site, you can use the little yellow icon with the mountain to insert a photo link.

good tire overall. Loud. People will turn their heads and look for the monster truck rolling down the street. Better grip than you would expect on pavement. I got about 3k+ out of my set. Front cupped pretty bad, rear squared off just like every other knobby will. They have a stiff sidewall, I liked them at lower pressures than the factory recommended
on and off road. They felt very squirrely to me on gravel with pressures in the mid/upper 20's. I'm on TKC's right now for a couple reasons: 1 I wanted to try something different, 2 The noise really wore on me after a while, even with earplugs, 3. I'd heard good things about the TKC's. Not enough riding time to make a good comparison yet. They are quieter, and do rail on pavement though.

I cant wait to give them a try. Ported and polished the cyl head, Klx needle jet kit, pipe work etc. It woke the KLR up big time. I am planning on running a 14 tooth front sproket the next trip up to laural. It cant come soon enough. I am hoping to jet over to KLRmikes spring fling this year to.

since i am looking forward to riding with yaall hoops this year. i got a question

when you pack camp where do you put all your gear, i am at a major disadvantage since i have a wr450. i can do local camps but my only major gear holder is a frame pack that weighs about 65 pounds (winter gear) and is a huge parachute on the highway.
if someone has a way to make a rear rack i would love to see it.
i cant wait to ride with someone who actually likes to dual sport, all my buds got plates so they can ride their dirtbikes on the street from point A to B. so i spend alot of time on solo rides

Dirtbagz, as mentioned by WFO, are fantastic. I have a set of Rangers that get switched between two bikes. They come off fairly easy, and pack small if you want to leave them on empty. Tough as nails. Two thumbs up!

I bought a very nicely made and inexpensive ($90 shipped) rack for my KLX250 off E-Bay. The seller is: sr8dirt

He has no website, but if you do an E-Bay search for that user name several auctions will come up. This one is for a 400 / 426, but I think it may work for the 450 - since they all have no undertail subframe (I think).

I'd shoot the seller a message first just to be sure it will work. If not, I bet he can make one.
