New Mods for my KLR

i had to do something to increase the comfort level of my bike..

i have added a dead sheep to my saddle from alaska leather, (looks a little funny) but is quite comfy. on my 24 mile commute to work, my sit bones dont get numb and no hot spots.

i had a guy make me a highway pegs bar similar to gmans, but out of aluminum and mounts to my skid plate u-bolt..putting that on tonight.

also adding the barsnake tonight after i mow, hopefully this will keep my hands from getting numb.

i will try to get pics of all this stuff and any other mods i have done for those interested.

The way that you wander is the way that you choose,
The day that you tarry is the day that you lose.
Sunshine or thunder, a man will always wonder,
Where the fair wind blows.

well, no pics of barsnake, but after a short ride i would have to say that it cut my handlebar vibration in half+. i used to be able to touch the cross bar and it felt like a hair clipper going, now it is very slight and hardly perceptible. i will follow up though after a longer ride where my hands would normally get numbed.

the highway pegs are awesome, super comfortable leg stretch.

here are a few pics...
