I've been up there three times in a little over a month...not needed. Its one of my favorite places to ride. Coming down the Clarke Creek trail from Radar dome is awesome when you're in a groove and just railin' the berms.

Heading up to Granite peak is also awesome...From 4th of July..

I did have a full IMS 6.6 gallon fuel tank and the dirt was pretty loose in a lot of places where it did get squirrelly but I usually had time to react. Iím thinking not so much fuel when heading off road will be my new rule of thumb.

My injuries are nothing serious but certainly uncomfortable. Sore ribs and shoulder. Nothing a handful of ibuprofen and a few Kokanees a day canít handle. Iím sure Iíll ne fine by the 20th
Sorry to hear that Rick. Heal up...we've got plenty of summer left. What tires are you running, the Kenda's? What's your air pressure at whilst riding offroad? Same as onroad?

Tires are Shinko 244s. I normally air them down when going off road but didn't that day. Could have been a factor..

Hope you are okay Rick and get healed soon. You may need to stick to Connie for a while. I took the Shinkos off my KLR, just didn't like the way the front washed out.

Hmm... So what does one of those weigh?
Certainly hitch hauler friendly I would think

Guess that depends on the size of the hitch The 300s are around 230 lbs

Class III at rear of my 4Runner and soon to be on the front of my F350. 230 lbs would not be a problem.

You joking? That is a killer price.... If I had 1500 sitting here right now to spend I'd get in my truck right now and go buy it.

Killer bike....what year? I assume older for that price.

Hey Sector... Granite peak ride isn't too bad, its really only the last 100 feet that is. Killer views....

Me thinks the hitch would work. Front mounted would be a little too buggy for me

'06 if I remember correctly - It's a real runner. I keep thinking I should buy it but then I'd like to have an '12 with the button

What a shame. This bike is the funnest thing I have ever ridden. Good lord, I feel like I'm 16 again. Just got home from the dealership, the long way round. Took about 20 miles of powerline roads, a bunch of twisty pavement, a little super slab and begged my way out of two tickets. Good heavens this thing is fun.
