    The miraculous KLR repair begs this question.....Are zip ties superior to duct tape?

    Red zip tie saves the day.

    Care to share the Max Speed info - on what bike and where?

    Oh, and since I crapped my drawers just thinking about it... do you have a recommendation for a Maximum Absorption Garment brand? :lol3

    I tried to get a close up picture of the waterfall, but the entire area was posted "Private Property". I actually got run off by a guy who could easily have played the part of the "other brother Daryl". It was a private hydro electric facility! :huh

    Had a great time, met a lot of great people, drank some scotch, smoked some cigars, did some riding on some of my favorite roads and came home feeling good!
