    But I've got the Corbin seat you had! The fellow you sold it too traded me seats.

    when the seasons shift there seems to be guys, and sometimes their girls, getting rid of their stuff.

    I couldn’t really hear it through the laptop spkrs, but the relatives you brought seemed to have laughed at eht right times … you're a brave man, it appears you have a bucket list.

    #19 though the park is open and in the best shape (in my limited experience) I’ve ever seen it in. No potholes to speak of and just a hint of corduroy on the uphill lane. Even some dust control from 10 to Rolling River Road. followed a roller through the construction with no problem. Even someone with a BMW could make it through.
    But got skunked though, not even a Bald Eagle, had to go to Whirlpool to find a Ruffed Grouse … stooped ffun birds.
    Leaves are pretty much all off but the tamaracks are still colour,
    Highlite was chatting with a the owner of a gorgeous restored 59 Triumph. Didn’t offer to let me ride it though… I wonder if he was looking at the DR? One of those "never dropped his bike" guys.

    Wish I'd taken a pic, the bike was beautiful.

    Yes I noticed the seat was different. Hope you are enjoying it Daryl.

    Yes, great looking seat, but Corbins sure are hard! I traded him a flat Corbin, for that dished one. I have a Sargent seat as well, which is a bit softer, and I find it a bit more comfortable. I feel pretty fortunate to have picked these up used to try out (expensive new!).

    Thanks for this. That is great to know. What is the status of the carb - .22 cent mod? Different needle/jets, or stock?
    Did you have any trick to getting the seat to lock down? I took it off to look at the electrical situation and I am pretty sure I don't have it seated correctly. It seems the front tab might be hitting the vent line but I am not sure since it was fine before I touched it. To get the rear screws to line up, the front tab is between the tank and frame, but this leaves the seat floating away from the tank a little while bolted down. Any ideas?

    When I owned it I didn't do anything to the carb. Ran great so left it alone.
    Not sure what seat you have on it now but with the former Corbin it wasn't too hard to get the front forks under the tank mount, then the back bolt holes lined up fine.

    Got the patches this week. The one good thing about COVID. Forced to stay on home turf. Tried to get the northern ones but the border closure fixed that one. Great program and the organizer needs a huge shout out for his hard work in getting this going. Get out and ride folks IMG_3015.JPG

    Rob, that's awesome! Maybe you could post some "destination" pics up? Would love to see some. Good to see that KLR just keeps on chugging. Just got back from camping - hopefully can get a few rides in before the deep freeze settles in.

    I was crossing the bridge/causeway onto Hecla Island this afternoon on a K1600GT and met 3 GS’s. Anyone from this forum?

    Rode the dr for the first time in a long while... busy times on the farm. Was a bit breezy but otherwise a very nice afternoon for a ride.
    fullsizeoutput_7.jpeg The sign denotes bumps but what actually lies ahead is a ford crossing through a drainage channel. In this case, the elm creek channel.
    Back in the day they had actual "ford crossing" signs at these.

    Lets hope for a pleasant late fall to extend the riding season...
