    Insurance has totaled out my KLR. I don't think I will be buying another..likely move back to a Tiger 800xc. I don't care for sitting around on my butt!

    ban and I had a great ride yesterday. Wish some others could have come along. ban came up with a route that was a 9.5 on a scale of 1 to 10.:clap It would have been perfect if he would not have run us through thick fog on the first 30 miles.:D Got to do this one again. Without the fog.

    Sieg, ran part of your trail from last week. Found this poor fellow high-sided on Klondike Rd. He had a bad Thanksgiving day. Felt bad as I left him, he had a cell phone but didn't want to use it.[​IMG]
