I don't think I can be offended. I know the status of a KLR and humbly accept it.

Just to be safe if every Utard could send me a 3 page apology PM I think I could sleep better. Maybe.

Okay, big group hug and I need to get serious about packing for La Paz.

Nope.

Everything is five-by-five here.

Prepping the GSA for the trip next week. I'm stoked that my GPS has the Mexican maps, too.

Meeting Andre today to check out those gloves.

It's all coming together.

Corrected for honesty. It's cool Ryman. Between you and BrShootr we all suspected as much.

To Todd's benefit, I think he has his right hand at the ready, in case the local tries any funny stuff, in which a swift drowning would likely occur from the big American.

That's one take. Having been there I took it as he was poised and ready to finish the embrace.

I've got to stop. Todd hates this shit and I may need some computer work out of him.

I was trying to find this for dieselCruiserHead the other day, but figured it may help get a few of you tards through the winter. It's not embedded because the soundtrack gets it banned from YouTube for copyright bs. I'll likely be doing an alternate version of this in May and hopefully not get rained on the whole time like last time.

This was unquestionably the strangest experience of my life. Pluric is all set to take my picture in the bottom of Copper Canyon. When all of the sudden this little salamander of man pops up out of the water and puts his arm on my shoulder to pose for the picture. I have no idea where this guy came from.

Nicely done on the video Kev. I particularly liked the beginning of the flash flood at the very beginning.

I have a Bridgestone Gritty ED78 on my bike right now and I know that those work pretty well. Can someone comment on those and/or any other tires that work pretty well?

thanks
I run the DOT Motoz desert ht.
Ive found them better than the 606 except in mud. I think they wear better than a 606 too.
Those are the only two i ride and the Motoz is clearly superior.
On the street I lean em both till the wear is half of the outer knob and both hold but the 606s seem to give way, faster. The Motoz hold better, but only marginally.
For gravel sand and general desert the Motoz is king as far as Im concerned.
Try 'em. Their only a few bucks more.
