    Hey... that looks like that mud was the good stuff, eh? Always good to make sure you toss 'er down on the right if you've just tossed 'er down on the left. It's all about symetry.

    Nice report :thumb

    update. Lost a good Friend a few weeks ago from Astoria. We grew up together went to same schools even lived with him and his parents for a bit. He was a good guy would do anything for you. He looks alittle ruff in the pic. He was working and it was a poser shot. Im glad i got to see him last year.
    He lost control of his motorcycle on a curve and hit a power line pole.

    :wink: Just purchased a 2008 KLR, and i am loving it. I have been on on rides and other bikes before, but it seems to be a new experience and freedom with that KLR. Riding as God intended.....lol....i just wanted to say hello to all with the same passion for a care free time with your bike and your helmet!


    if anyone is riding off road and is looking for some company, i am itching to abuse whats left of the season before the snow falls!:wings

    There are many KLR guys on here. Friar Mike has had a couple tech days for KLR's.

    Beezer seems to be our resident expert.

    There are a bunch who ride all winter with studs. Check in with them.

    How do you like the 08 model. I haven't got a chance to ride one or even look one over closely yet. If your in the valley on the weekends PM me.

    (KLRdave----> How do you like the 08 model. I haven't got a chance to ride one or even look one over closely yet. If your in the valley on the weekends PM me.)


    KLRdave, to be honest with you it really depends on what you are into, the prior models are all great in there own right i am sure, but looking at the 2008 new body style is by far to me the best upgrade. simply because it gives a new dimension to the bike. i like the street/dirt look. while the prior models look more dirt bike. but the ride and power in the 08 really surprised me. i am used to street croch rocket type bikes, so to have this one is new for me. But i am pleased in the suddle modifications in the 08, it is really a good buy for the cost and the over all bike you get for it! (and at 250lbs, it really moves me///lol)
    as for those who ride in the winter on studs? how is that ride? i heard some folks do that, but i must admit it is something that mightbe out of my league, but i have learned to never say never!

    Hacky for what it's worth, my vote is for finishing it. Please!


    Also I was in Bodie a couple of days before you and saw this guy lurking around

    [​IMG]

    and was wondering if you knew him since it looks like you guys go to the same ophthalmologist. :lol3


    Don't be like that guy pictured, starting things & not finishing them.
    Wonder what his wife has to say? :wink:
