I've got "almost" the same KLR setup as you....You're gonna do that on "that" seat? ...and thought I was tough.

Have fun and post some newly aquired recipes too!

In a bind!!!!

I AM IN A BIND!!!

I had Outerwear lined up for this trip and it just fell through.
Do to counting pennies I cannot afford new riding gear.

So if by any chance anyone knows a rep or is a rep that could help me out with at least a waterproof jacket would be amazing.

I would do product reviews, logo on webpage, decals on bike, whatever it takes.

Or else it looks like I will be starting this trip with dirtbike boots, Alpinestar Leather Race jacket, and dirtbike pants.

I know it is a HAILMARY and short notice (I head south in 9 days), but thanks for looking/ helping

What size jacket do you need?

Also, you should post a request in the Rockies section; a great bunch of guys and gals always willing to help if they can.

Coming fast!!!

My last day of work is over, the goodbye's have started (with lots of goodbye beers). Now running around with my head cut off trying to piece together everything I have to do before I leave for the next 2 years!!! I will be leaving Crested Butte on Friday the 4th, to meet up with all my friends one last time to say goodbye. I will then head toward LA on Saturday camping on the way to see my Bro and Nephew. Then on Monday the 7th I will leave LA around 4am to Cross the border at Tecate. I will ride down to Todos Santos for my friends wedding on the 11th.
