    Had a nice long dual sport ride with my buddy today, with tons of gravel, a little bit of true offroad trail riding, and a few creek crossings, some WAYY deeper than I expected. Truly had fun today, then wound it down with a few beers by a nice fire.
    It was a good day, kinda takes the sting out of going back to work in the morning. 20200531_145319.jpg 20200531_201551.jpg

    Took a loop up to Galisteo, and returned by way of Madrid. Way too many people for my comfort level. The wind got a little squirrely though, tried to blow me off the road a couple times. BC58BF73-4000-4E9B-AF1B-D6B7F38A5E64.jpeg

    A couple pics... got another project bike finished up, took it for a spin, a successful test ride (all good, no issues). Good excuse to get 'em together for a group pic. Left to right, an '01 705, the middle bike a '96 692, RH bike another '01 678cc 2mm oversize Wossner high compression piston (yummy), with Gen 2 front & back end, Vapor display, WP shock. They are all nicely farkled.

    I plated this one, took it for a good spin yesterday, had a blast - it's a strong runner, runs well, great front brake with the Galfer set-up. If a KLR is a super tanker, the Safari tank makes it a SUPER tanker:

    Not enough photos for the ride report thread, so here we go.

    I'm really trying to wear through the factory tires on my 2017. I'm only up to 4,000 miles and change as of this afternoon. 250 miles done today, up north to Cube and Abiquiu and around through Los Alamos and Jemez Springs. Perfect day, only 10 miles of dirt or so after all was said and done, but the bike ran beautifully.

    Today's loop:

    There is a short (8-mile) dirt track from Abiquiu Lake to the Village of Abiquiu, very fun, I wish it had been longer.

    Who was it here that said they start to run smoother as the miles climb? I caught myself upwards of 80 on the highway a couple times and couldn't tell.

    Boy howdy GWN, I love that Super Tanker! Is that the Hemisphere Offroad upper fairing?

    Yes, to the Hemisphere fairing. It's pretty thick plastic. I'm going to mount a RAM mount on the inside (ordered), for a GPS, see how that works out. I like the rally dash idea, GPS up high and centered, in-your-face a little. Makes following a track line easier.

    Edit... some people may be curious, as to how that Hemisphere forward tilt fairing works out. It was a very windy day during that ride, and I was impressed by the amount of wind protection that fairing provides, given it's size. Big improvement actually IMO... but so is the wheatwacker mod.

    Nice view from here. Even dodging sleet and rain drops at over 10000ft in the Rockies. NE of Chama, New Mexico. 20200616_120420.jpg
