Fishing Rod?

So does anyone else carry a fishing rod when on extended adventures? Do you have a picture of it? I would like to see what you are using.

Now I have a piece of PVC that fits on the passenger peg. Slick.

I used a piece of 2" PVC pipe that works very well and straps down anywhere. Now if only I could get the big ass tackle box to fit in the action packer?

A KLR is not a motorcycle, it is a blank canvas with which to paint the rest of your life.

It's the best as long as you can not gouge an eye out walking around the bike.
