What did your father in law do to need you to hide his plates like that?

I will happily keep the KLR warm...if you know what I mean...

Lets see if this thing is a little more durable/reliable than my R100GS.

A late 70's Fiat would be more reliable than that particular GS

Clean looking KLR!

Meh, life is fatal. Theres all different kinds of risks. I'd go into an old mill in an instant, most the time they're already fallen down. What's a real bummer is all the machinery is often long gone, taken away and melted down for scrap. What's still around is locked up in private property or buried. The ned mining museum has some really cool stuff, and theres some stuff kickin around behind fences if you know where to look :)

I don't know what this is, but it's cool that it's still there:

No teabagging.

But throw an oil change on her, and she's yours for three weeks at least.

Although yours broke, when I replaced my cable at 16k, it still felt good, so I left it in place as a spare.

Powershifting is a skill all riders should have. BTDT.

But I don't recommend it 118 miles a day, for three weeks. I know it's
a bulletproof KLR and all, but still.

That is a spiral classifier. The big chunks are transported to the top to be re-ground to the proper size. The small stuff slides down through the gap between the spiral and the trough.
