Is that a left handed throttle, or to you just store your Throttle Rocker there when not in use?

Throttle rocker on left-hand bar, helps keep the weight from the body off the hand. (i.e. its comfortable)

Aahh, great road. But not Hwy 89, you are referring to SR12 between Bryce & Torrey, UT.

As the poster above said, I use an additional Cramp Buster on the left side to rest my palm on during the long stretches... very comfy. I have some rotator cuff issues and some tendonitis, so I tend to get some hand/finger numbness while riding. I use both left and right Cramp Busters to facilitate a few different stretching exercises I've come up with to alleviate the numbness... has worked out very well for me.

Nothing fancy, but this is Hwy 40 between Duchesne and Heber. It's a great ride.

this is called Nighthawk Hill. This section of the gravel road is a 15% grade. The first time I took this road was on a 1991 Yamaha FJ1200. That kinda freaked me out. But now I've been over it so many times I took my wife on it 2up on the KLR last Sunday.

I was there yesterday, took the day off work for my birthday, and me and a buddy did the cascade loop. Quick little 500 mile day ride. Only saw 1 fire, quite a few elk, and almost NO other riders. Gotta love riding at 6am on a Tuesday!

Keep the pictures coming!

And this is nothing really special, but it's not too far from home, and I enjoy having some fun there from time to time. There are not enough twisty roads in my area...
