    Just a word on the install of an Eagle Mike Fork Brace on the KLR:
    I live in Fairplay Colorado at 10,082 feet. My house is just a few miles to the nearest asphat. The dirt roads are shaped by cars, trucks and graders/plows in snow part of the year, mud part of the year and hard packed shaped rutted dirt part of the year.

    There is a section that winds 2 miles downward toward town that is 4 to 6 inch snakey rutts that typically move the KLR where it wants it to go and it's just part of the drill heading into town (I will try and post a pic later today).

    I installed the fork brace a few days ago and I'm amazed at the control it returns to the bike from just the brace.

    2 thumbs up for Eagle Mike.

    EM produces good stuff. The installation was simple and the result is you have more precise steering.

    Agreed, I think it took all of 15 minutes.
