Arrow Visit The Photo Album

In an on going effort to make you guys feel at home, I decided to add a photo album to the site.

ENTER THE PHOTO ALBUM HERE

There are a few specific categories you pics can be placed.

Enjoy the new addition.

Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, proclaiming WOW--What A Ride!!

The photo album allows you to upload pics from your pc without the need of sites like photobucket. As long as the size of the picture is no outside the 800 x 600 pixel limit.

I will be glad to resize pics for anyone, just give a shout.

Later

A very good tool to easily resize an image is the Microsoft Power Toy, "Image Resizer".

It is located on the right side of the link below.

This tool will allow you to right click and resize a photo that you are viewing- by default it will reproduce the photo in the size you select, not touching the original. You can make it change the original if you would like to though.

Just posted a photo in the Mod section with a brief discription. The discription does not show up. Still a bug to work out or did I screw up ?

Don't confuse activity with progress.

Well the BMW 800 is a fine bike. Lots of advantages and disadvantages to owning one. Do you like to work on your own bikes or prefer to let the Professionals do it for you? BMW's can be worked on, but many things will require a professional shop and tool. Due to the Fuel Injection and computerization of the Electrics. The 800 is a lot more bike than a KLR will ever be in the power department. But you must decide how much power you need.

The KLR is an "Everymans Bike". Easy to work on and yes it has it's shortcoming that require an Owner to Tune it to his riding style.
Seats and suspension are the first to address. But, the aftermarket has all that convered and it's nothing you couldn't do. Some engine designs must be addressed but it's not a bank account breaker. (Doo Hickey)

Of course we are a little prejuduced here. But, this is where you can come to find the how to's!

I have riddin mine all over the Country and had the engine apart several times. Mainly because I'm one of those Tim Taylor types! My 06 has served me well and it get's ridden many times over the Ducati I have in the Garage with it.

Have yet to find anything I couldn't fix, modify, or hot rod on this bike. The hardest part on a KLR to fix is the 6th gear ratio and insane horsepower it's lacking.
You will find that a fully tricked out KLR will still be less than what you initially bought a Beemer for.

Your call!

What specific questions you have, you should ask.
