Go Mel!! Looking forward to reading about your adventures.
I will post pictures when I have time, but basically since I posted my last progress I have done:
-License plate bolt lights
-12v outlet wiring/fuse
-Taken out the shims of both bikes to get replaced
-Oil change on Chris'
-Drilled and mounted one pannier (yay!)
-Hosted the first tech day of the 2013 riding season for Winnipeg
To do in the next couple days:
-Replace Doo on my bike
-WheatWhacker mod on both bikes
-Drill and mount second pannier
-Install new shims and throw the bike back together
-Beef up tool tube straps
-Fix Chris' highway pegs
In. My KLR is jealous of yours
Looks like an awesome ride.
Here are the pics from the valve checking operation.
Finally got that &*%$@!! Cover off
Had to buy shims for both bikes.
Finally got around to checking my doo. GreatWhiteNorth was nice enough to help me through the process and supply me with the extra parts. So we get to work and whaddya know....
Turns out the previous owner put the Eagle mike doo and tension spring. All that work for nothing.
So with the spare parts we checked Chris' which turned out to need replacing. We didn't have the Eagle Mike one but the '08+ Doo is alot beafier than the dinky older model ones.
Shit hot Mel. Glad to see it's all coming together for you guys. Am amazed at how good the pics from your phone turned out!
Good luck and good roads on your trip!
Who's that idiot sticking his head into the picture and pretendig to be interested in valve checking?
I wish you two a great and safe trip.
Thanks for all the good wishes, everyone. We had to push the trip back a day because my tank bag didn't come in the mail
Oh well. Here are some pics to numb the pain.
Here is Chris, starting the Wheatwacker mod on my bike.
And this is the finished product.
Then Chris finished drilling my new panniers since I was having troubles
And the finished product on both bikes.
I'm so in. Best of luck for your trip.
Thanks for taking the time to post your adventure .

Delayed STILL because UPS can't get their shit together.
Soooo with the extra time we decided to add a little something to my cockpit.
