Hmmmm...maybe the above image is an idea for harcus.

I wouldn't mount the fly rod across the the length of the bike unless you have panniers that are wider than the length of your fly rod. Pluric's idea of mounting it lengthwise is much safer (for the rod) in case you end up dropping the bike too.

Just my 2c

It's harder than having to pick which girl to hit on when at a bar in Brazil! Sure you know which ones to avoid, but that still leaves you with too many good choices to choose from. Whichever one you choose, there seems to be a better option out there. That's part of the reason I just settled on the models I am looking into and called it good.
It would be easier to just plan a Saturday afternoon at Pluric's. You would get a better variety and not have to drive very far. It's what I do.

What ever you end up doing keep it under a buck.

If it were me, I think I would try to attach a ridged fly rod case the frame, behind the left side panel. I don't have a KLR so I can't go out to the garage and check this, but several of you could. I'd put the end that opens up close to the rear luggage rack where hopefully you could still get the sections out, without removing the case from it's semi permanent home.

Pluric, could you do the photo-shop on that for me?

Skid plate?? That is so three months ago.

What about the new driving lights and rear lights?
Combo spare/gas carrier?
New 300 watt over head sound bar W/four 6 1/2 inch speakers
and remote i-pod control with billit holder.
Don't even get me started on the bag updates, Whew.

1 PVC pipe (I may have enough left to make another one)
2 PVC pipe caps
2 Safety pins (The ones that you have a pin with a clamp at the end made to go around a pipe)

Cut the PVC pipe, put the caps on both ends and drill a hole through both the cap and pipe. Use the safety pins to lock the caps in place and you got yourself a 90cent rod holder that will withstand a LOT of abuse!

I can post pictures if anyone wants them.

All this talk of putting your rod in a special holder has gotton
Infidel so worked up he can't even post.

So why the obvious solution has not been mentioned yet is beyond me.

Duh......



It's what the pros use. Pop it in the tank bag and get ready to

I'm on my way. I've had the grey tape (duct tape) on there for a while now. Had to put the duct tape on to minimize how much my helmet was getting scuffed when in the helmet lock.

Also, I've possibly completed the smallest farklles ever: tamper proof dual star oil filler cap and rear brake master cylinder cover.

I have a tall tinted windscreen on order and the clymer manual. As if I wasn't enough of a redneck already.

Now we know what kind of engineer you are.

Because then you're adding complications to the system. By using a safety pin, I can quickly disconnect the ends, from either side instead of threading the cap in place. Lastly, PVC pipes are made to low tolerances and I did not want to deal w/ the end cap binding against the tube, or coming loose with the vibration of the ride.

I'm not trying to be an ass, but don't you run the risk of filling your new rod holder with dirt. I would think a bit of grease on the threads would make it easy to spin off as well as seal out the dirt. But hey, it's your farkle, make it the way you see fit.

I interupt for a technical question. A few pages back Pluric uploaded an animated *.gif file. I believe the said file was referred to as the Infidel emoticon. (Sorry Infidel, I'm not picking a fight here) Anyway, I resized the file so it was about the size of an emoticon, but the site won't let me upload it. It says that it is an invalid file type. What gives?
