New KLR Owner
Hi folks, I am a new KLR owner having purchased a 2018 model. The bike is in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada and I'll be driving it home to Yellowknife, Canada in May. I've joined the forum because I'm thrilled to be a part of the KLR community and they'll be some great riding in Northern Canada.
Meantime, I'm looking for a bit of advice for the 1200km ride from Edmonton to Yellowknife. In particular:
1) what key tools should I bring for the ride? Any suggestions on essentials for changing tires etc. A bit of research suggests the following is crucial:
-Quick Jack (Eagle Mike)
-socket wrench with basic 8,10,12 mm
-Screwdriver combo bit set
-Metric allen wrenches
-Flashlight and/or headlamp
2) any essential modifications for the ride?
3 any other advice for the bike's maiden ride?
