Old Git Ray,

Just looked over You proposed route across the US. when You come across the plains from(to?) Denver... Might I suggest You skip Chicago and head north through the U.P. of Michigan and cross the lakes at Sault St. Marie/ St. Ignace. Much more scenic and less traffic by a long shot.

If that interests You, send Me a PM and i'll help You with a route and logistics.

Not to heavy, if you use the engine
Yes, that was the warm up...

around here the race tracks use very heavy tarps for advertising. the kind of tarps truckers use. the tracks throw them out of site when they switch out. i just go to the track and get as many as i want from the old pile. they are 60' X 15'. i cut them to whatever size i need. some stuff i hammer grommets in them. some stuff i screw them down. i get the screws with ribber washers. they work great and my friends laugh cause my stuff has shit written on the inside .

Another source is whatever company does billboards in your area. Lamar, ClearChannel, CBS etc... They will likely have a big pile of their old "vinyls" sitting out back. You may have to dig through them a bit to find a heavy one, as they have gotten lighter in recent years, but the heavy ones are still out there, or at least they were when I last had to pull one of those things up 50 ft onto a catwalk a year ago.

Glad to see you can take the KLR away from the man, but you can't take the KLR out of the man.

Welcome to the forum, eh.

I use a Nelson-Rigg 'half cover' p/n UV 2000 04 XL size that works great to fit over my S10 with Zega Pro 31/38L bags and my fuel cell. Rolls up nice and compact and came with it's own storage bag with a waist strap. It has a couple of tie down points that I put carabiners on and can clip quickly in place to the bike. It's held up will to the last couple of years in all kinds of weather and wind.

Hey Graham;
I've seen that set up before in Europe... I really like the idea of the super big vestibule.

I'm not GrahamD, but I've seen these at the Vegas BMW shop too, funny that it was labeled Tenere, you would think they would know better than to put a GS in it?

Hey thanx GrahamD and Dirty bike!!

Funny you should mention the nelson rigg as i was just checkin out their gear today online. As for the tent that may end up in my kit a lil farther down the road . I dont have a garage at the moment but im undercover , i go away for periods of time and basically looking for something to protect the bike while it sits at home.

i also tracked down a " R&G " adventure bike outdoor cover . anybody ever hear about them ?? think it was $ 50 UKpounds

Appreciate the help and it was an easy way to introduce myself to the inmates
