Yes, I am with you on that! Chocolate Chip cookies and Corona’s pool side after a day’s ride.
Managed to do 375 Miles yesterday with Lappeman. We went from Thunder Bay to Atikokan , then headed up the 622 . That brought us just west of Ignace 265 Kms west of Thunder Bay . Then it was a steady ride home .
Tomorrow ( Friday nov 6 ) i hope to ride out to Terrace Bay and back .
Enjoy the weather, it’s been great here this week.
It was fast paced ride with some sketchy sections between Atikokan and Ignace! LOL!
Nice photos Lappeman . Great riding with you again . I managed to get out 3 times between Wednesday and today ( Sunday nov 8 ) . In total I did over 1,200 Kms in 3 days . It was another great ride from Thunder Bay to Terrace Bay and back today . Looking forward to next riding season . Time to plan a long , really long trip .
Start planning now! There’s lots of Canada out there. Hopefully the Covid shit will be gone by spring!
Thanks Feliz! Wish we would've had more daylight to stop and smell the roses! LOL! I've had a trip to Tuk planned for over a year now...looks like it will be awhile longer before I can do it. Maybe you're interested in Tuk? Happy Trails!
I really don't think things will be any better next summer...
Rode to Tuk in August 2018, amazing ride and lucked out on most the weather. Hit snow and rain on the return over the white pass, was a shale mud mess til just past Eagle plains. Traffic was all backed up there as travel wasn't recommended; deep ruts and several vehicles ditched. Was a chore keeping it upright and controlling speed descending the pass with near 0 visibility. But what a blast!! Had so much fun I kept going and did the Dalton up to Deadhorse on Prudhoe Bay. Was snowing so hard on top of the world Hwy that I never got to see any of the beautiful scenery everyone raves about, didn't stop until pretty much Chicken.
Gone_Riding ,I read your ride report . You did have a great trip .
What started the sticker craze in Deadhorse? When I was there in 2013 there wasn't one sticker on the sign and I didn't put one there.
Not sure, must be the European influence! When I first rode the Alps I noticed every pass sign had a few of them and now you can barely read the pass signs...
well it snowed overnight, who else is getting ready for some winter riding?!
Already started with some mods to the '06 KLR 650 that I bought this summer. New grips, grip heaters (after that long cold ride without them), small dash with USB and cig outlets. Gonna raise her back up to stock height too with a center stand for those back road flats! Just the basics and nothing fancy! Already had to do the drill thru subframe due to broken bolts that I found there. Hope everyone is staying safe and warm!
sw motech center stand? How was the fit?
I've had 3 different KLR centerstands, found the Happy Trails adjustable height one to be best, as it will adjust full range from lowered to raised.
Both Center Stands I have are Happy Trails brand...one is the standard length and one is the adjustable length. No issues with fit.
Happy trails it is then. Thanks guys.
Just make sure you put loctite on the peg bolts...they seem to come loose if you don't, even if it's torqued properly. Good luck!
Really really good point! There's only 3 or 4 threads holding the footpeg bolts, and that's pretty soft mild steel, strips easily (don't overtorque!). My '01 KLR had all 4 footpeg bolts oversized to 10mm x 1.5 (a bad idea), and they were stripping out. I epoxied in (using JB-Weld) repair Helicoils, which have held up fine.
