That's perfect! Thanks much.
After all of last week's winds, it was a pleasant, calm evening for a ride. This bridge is on road 11w where it crosses the mighty, muddy LaSalle.
This would be roughly half way between Elie & Starbuck. The river is up quite a bit since the weekend rains. I'm told that the area around the jct of hwys 26 & 248 received as much as 7 inches. Heavy rains in the Marquette area as well. I rode up that way this evening - found that most of the water has drained away. Some fields apparently looked more like lakes sat evening / sun morning.
Btw, was in Elie mid afternoon and saw a bright yellow v Strom cruise through town heading north... Forum member?
The MIGHTY DR!
Don't listen to those KLR bigots!
I'd love to try a DR next. No KLR bigotry here.
Great looking ride! I've been wanting to do a Pembina valley excursion as well this summer, your GPX will definitely be useful. Thanks for sharing
Looks like you guys had a great day for a ride in the Pembina Valley. Really sorry I missed you guys when you were close to our property! I would have enjoyed having you all stop by for a dip in the pond if needed! Next time I will carry my phone on me and not leave it in the garage for 4 hours. (only replied to your text 3 hours later...duh).
A few more pics of the Pembina Valley Ride.
4 guys, 400 km, 8 hours, very enjoyable !
Hats off to GWN for putting the route together.
the boys patiently waiting at the bottom for me to turn around, go back and capture this great shot
our leader was scouting out the route ahead.....had to stop for this photo op
met some happy horseback riders along the way
the beautiful Pembina River Valley...
so hungry after a great ride...burger/fries were delicious !
I have often thought a DR would be a great replacement for the KLR. 60 pounds lighter than the KLR is a big difference!
I too have been wanting to own a DR for a long time. Before Corona hit I was planning to rent in Equidor and the DR ws my choice. With equivalent amounts of fuel and similarly equipped I believe the weight diff would be somewhere around 35-40 lbs.
I weighed my gen2 klr, with 1/2 tank of fuel, no centerstand, no crashbars, passenger peg brackets removed, and 12 lbs worth of tool tube. With my "red green" bathroom scale system.... it was 420
Looks like it was a good run.
Ordered a new brain bucket.
It wasn't available in a colour I liked.
Anyone ever get vinyl decals like they do for cars put on a helmet?
Any place local that would do it?
Or is it an unsafe idea for some reason?
Hi, not sure. I've looked at getting a set of gpx files for that trail, but haven't gotten around to it yet. I would like to hear if you get them, and how long it takes.
I got this one a few weeks ago from them. Ontario and MB
An experienced guy like you knows that deep sand and KLR's don't mix.....next you're going to try some deep mud ?
WW tmrw for the annual kicking of the tyres.
I don't comment here often but do check in once in a while........wanted to throw up a few pics of my old KLR which I bought off GWN. I rode it to Winnipeg and back a couple times, usually mostly gravel, was to BC and back a couple times, backroad stuff. I rode it for 2 summers, then the guy I sold it to rode it down to Costa Rica, had a fall and broke his shoulder.
He shipped it home and eventually sold it to this guy who I corresponded with on the local Kijiji just a little while ago. He had put on a bunch of miles too, and lots of backroad stuff.
The 685 Daryl put in was still going strong, interesting that this was the engine with a head that got oil starved and had galled cam journals. He fixed it with careful dremel work and salvaged it. It wasn't ridden easily either, though well maintained. Engine has about 60k and is fine.
So I had to save these pics and show them.............I just picked up a well kitted DR, will be fun.

Very nice pics of the Pembina Valley, looks like it was a great ride. We did that one a few years ago, must have a pic somewhere.
Great photo of the KLR in the mountains. Where was that?
That KLR has some serious history.
Reg, the DR looks fantastic !
Thanks for the download. A more recent version will be very helpful. Really appreciated.
