    Many of you are aware, my bike had an unhealthy bath in the creek this year in Saturday just before the lunch trip. Forensics revealed that the 3 oil changes I did to clear the water out actually saved the bearings. They looked OK. But I was under power at mid range rpms when it gulped a big drink of water, the cylinder stopped quickly and strained the con rod. It let go 40 miles later. 30 miles on Saturday to get back to the hotel, and 10 miles on Sunday morning, cruising along the riverfront, it shook, coughed and kept making power on one cylinder! Evan Hipp trailered me home in a Harley trailer. Well, I took the opportunity to do a deep clean the bike, and pull some major maintenance.. It is cleaned up and running well again- and is ready for the next BIG ride. We both now have a snorkel; and to round out the safety features, I'm wearing floatation next year as well. East your heart out Loose Nut!. Yeehah!!!! versys snorkel add on.jpg

    i love the ACME snorkel and flippers........and the always ready camera.......never a full moment riding with you........but now I'm torn between my favorite Versys picture.....the "unhealthy bath" or "prepped for 2016"

    Wild Bill you ROCK!

    I didn't know the Versys could use a KLR snorkel!

    Glad the dunking wasn't terminal and you have it running again!!

    20151114_131136.jpg The part of the story I didn't tell was that as my designated driver, Evan Hipp, took me home on Day 2 of LooseNut, I found a used more with low miles from a crashed Versys on Fleabay. It was a plug and play deal and she was running 3 weeks later. My new saying is that the memory was worth 800 dollars!

    Can't wait for the 2016 info. & ride.
    KlR is up and running from last yrs. Swim & stretched chain & worn spockets. New bearings. We did the Dirt Daze at Americade, Lake George NY this yr. It was a blast and KLR is ready for anything.
    See ya all this fall.
