    Yeah,...:freaky

    I rode it a few years ago with a team of friends from Cullman, Al. Plus I've raced Hare-Scrambles down in Maplesville several times.

    Are you gonna ride it?:ear

    nope, spent a shitload of money and time to do that event last year and had more fun the couple years before just hanging around and offering support.

    You couldn't pay me to ride a KLR after the first hour of that event, it gets so whooped out it's not even funny. :deal

    Enjoy!

    Yeah....but if you just roll over the whoops kind of nice and easy it ain't that bad.:D

    I know winning ain't in the story, but it'll be fun, and it will be a good story anyhow. I'm just looking at it as a nice long trail ride.:huh

    I can't wait till the Le-mans style start when everybody lines up, runs across a field to their bike and tears out...

    I'll stretch a bit, walk over to the ol 30k+ mile KLR, turn the key, push the button, and ride off nice and easy:rofl ....every bit of energy waisted the first hour is energy lost for the 24th.:D

    18 laps Iron man on a 2 stroke is an accomplishment, 18 laps on a KLR would be a miracle. We've supported an IronMan 40+ in open class on a BMW G650X 2 years ago, he got 17laps and is a very accomplished endurance rider on a bike better suited for that type of event.

    Good luck with it.

    Sell 20 Husky's for me and I'll give you a Husky to ride all the time and call it your own :deal :freaky

    Should be easy right, Get someone to buy a husky for every lap you do, kind of like the charity walks/marathons where folks donate money for each mile. But in this case they buy a Husky for their own use (they already make out there cause they don't know what they're missing anyhow) and I'll go with your 18 lap offer. Get 18 folks to buy Husky's in support and You'll have a free one to abuse(and it might be a bit easier to get to 18 laps on a Husky maybe?) Easy enough right? Just let me know where to deliver them :lol3

    That sounds like a great idea,...wish I'd thought about it a year ago.:huh

    I'm looking forward to the raceday, are you going this year? riding? Bringing a ride for someione else?

    Alright, I replaced the DooHickey and spring 3 days ago, installed a fork brace last night.

    I've decided on the IRC VE33 tires for the race. I'll ride down with the DOT's and then swap wheels. I, at first, wanted to do the race on DOT's but better sense prevailed.

    My IMS tank will be here anyday now. And my second radiators are awaiting a day off work for installation.

    More updates as the race nears.

    DooHickey report...

    I gave the great Cavemans KLR a good once over at the Tellico KLR ride this past weekend. I will mimic his set-up on the dual radiator installation.

    I'll be installing the IMS tank today, pics to follow.:freaky

    Also, rim-locks will be installed today...with the edges good and sharp so they'll dig in the tire a bit better(more Caveman advice:D ).
