That's a pretty well-written article. I may have to look into picking up a subscription...
The key things for KLR longevity :
1) keep the valves in spec.
2) don't overheat the engine
3) don't run it out of oil
4) make sure the Doo is doing what it's supposed to do.
Makes sense Hekto!!
You made a wise choice in staying down there...4" of snow this morning and a full on raging blizzard is happening :eek1
Got a little dusting of snow here over night, but going to stay below 0c.
Spent the last couple of days collecting dog shit as it rises out of the retreating snow. Like little brown submarines! The hunt for Brown October continues today. Both bikes cleaned up, warmed up and ready! Light snow overnight. Must stop soon? No?
Take the pain !
Just like in Costa Rica, we are spending millions a day here
We're getting the identical temps here Hektoglider. In Fahrenheit!
Hecto, you are killing me!!! I just finished cleaning off the driveway and the snow is starting to fall again.
On the lighter side, I am going to Bar B Q an Easter bunny this afternoon, oooops, I mean, a chicken!!!! My apologies to the younger ADV members!:dg:dg
What needs to be Bar B Q'd is that lying ass ground hog!
Couple photos to warm up your day
Hektoglider Two really dumb questions. What camera are you using? What are you riding? I'm GREEN!
I am doing the whole shebang with an iPod . Using the maps, posting photos to ADV, searching the web, using the calc for money exchange, and a whole lot more. We also have a small laptop & a Fuji X10 camera which has taken the fine photos but they are saved to a Kingston stick 8G for much later. I have not seen our best stuff except on the 7" screen. We got some great photos and also logged a lot of GPS stuff too. Basically the small laptop is needed to manage the photos & GPS data but is not set to wifi, just the iPod for web.
We are riding almost identical 250cc Super Sherpa bikes and they are all you need for the roads we choose to go on.
You may be green but you can do a winter getaway easily. It's cheaper being here then it is to ride in Canada and a great experience. The hardest part was leaving home.
There's wifi free everywhere. We have Skype on the iPod and email etc. Fully connected 80% of the time.
The small bikes get great fuel economy, minimal wear on chain(adj once since Texas) and tires are on the shelf for $45 in the corner store in the small village
Releasing ourselves from the life situation and obligations to become free is they key that opened the door.
We average hotels at $20-$25 a night with varying amenities but most have wifi or there is wifi close by.
Big modern stores everywhere allow us to stock up & eat cheaper. We have a stove with us.
OK I answered your Q & a bit more!
I hope you guys that are retired or semi retired that are standing around looking out the window can see that you can watch the snow melt from down south
Your logic is sound as usual Brian...I trust you are on the mend! Good to see Lee's pictures of an actual motorcyle out in the actual outdoors of Manitoba!
Greg, do you recall when I did the doo on my KLR in your garage, I believe Jim Toe had brought me the heavier spring...but I don't really remember if we changed it out...do you?
We're supposed to check the oil...:eek1
need help i'm on day 20 of my sahara desert ride and my klr suddenly made noise and stopped there's no oil in the glass i thought the dealer was supposed to check the oil when we brought it in for new tires that was only four months ago and besides the green "n" light for 'no oil change required' kept turning on whenever i take the bike out of gear what a piece of crap i'm not even abusing it just towing my altima over a couple of sand dunes with it wtf!!!!!!11!1!!!!!!
Not so nice is the wonderful 6 inches of snow we got today to replace the 5 that melted in the last 4 days...WTF!!!
Just came back from a ride. Thank God for heated gear! -6 or so, and a 20 km/h wind makes for chilly! Roads were darned greasy.
Looks good with the "New" pannier on it. Congrats!
Thnx. Hope it hangs in there. The rack it's mounted to could be beefier.
