    I've been thinking about Father's Day weekend (next weekend:eek1 ). Bum around Vermont...pitch a tent at night...ride some more the next day...head back to camp...

    Better get my act together. It's coming up quick. What're you doing then?

    Damn nice pics.
    I love VT! I went through there on a bike in 96. I rode this crazy road (route 12 or 112 - that could be wrong. It was near Mad River Glen if that rings any bells) First gear sweepers and fantastic asphalt.
    Now Im on a KLR and would like to find some good dirt roads in da mountains.. Any suggestions?

    Sorry, I meant boat brackets :D . The 1430 have boat brackets that you can attach to the side of a boat. I've never seen them in person but I don't think they would be strong enough to support the case. Sorry 'bout that.

    Sweet Allen!! What did you do with all the electricals?

    I have a few frames and engines and I was thinking of building a "plain" KLR for offroad. You have any detail on your mods? Thx.

    Here's the beasty, I have since added a new skidplate, master cyclinder guard, radiator guards, changed the pegs, and got rid of the rediclulous windhsield.. Just got back from big bend and she handled River Road like a champ...

    I can remember seeing Kawi ,Ossa and Hodaka brochures showing short chains between brake and gear shift levers to the frame.

    Like you said....it keeps the brush from jamming the levers! It was an idea developed during the days of the 1000 bike desert races, in the early 1970's!!!! Great Days indeed!!
