Heavy rain this morning and I didn't think I'd be riding, but it cleared up about noon. I decided to go back down to the Morgan-Monroe State Forest on the KLX and see if I could see the difference in my two bikes. Let's just say there is a difference between a bike able to do rough roads and one designed to do rough roads. I rode those roads on the Scrambler twice lately. Once with MondayDad and his KTM 790 and once with a friend on his BMW GS 1200. The Scrambler got to the same places okay, but the KLX got there MUCH easier and I felt far more in control at higher speeds. I was taking it easy on the KLX because I was alone today and didn't have great cell coverage. Having a "get-off" out there would not be fun. Even with that, I still felt like the I was under better control. On the other hand, over 100 miles on the KLX seat was not a delightful experience. One of the reasons I went back down was to get a shot I missed when Bob and I were there. Both of us appreciated this sign. https://ridewithgps.com/trips/54114346 So, the Scrambler lets me explore the unexpected dirt road while the KLX lets me go ride those roads on purpose. Pretty nice to have the option. I do think I'll work toward a Seat Concept kit for the KLX. Replaces the foam and seat cover and it gets good reviews. That should make the longer rides more doable. It was fairly hot today, so I took the opportunity to stop for cold drink. In keeping with ADV tradition... I'd really like to get the side stand cut down a bit. The bike stands too upright.
