The KLR

To my surprise the KLR is a comfort to nature also. Notice they rabbit taking shelter by the front wheel.

Yes, the KLR is very good with animals.


I'm curious about your parking technique.

Any rhyme or reason for it? The guy to the left seems to be doing it too.

Well that parking technique is not quite refined. I mainly park that way because there are usually other bikes parked in that area in the same manner. We have been known to park like that across the lines to fit more bikes in less space. Also I think it shows broadside somewhat and makes it easier to see by someone thinking it may be an empty space. The direction we face is the same direction we go to exit the parking lot.

Then they will realize that he doesn't have a California emissions canister and proceed to have a conniption fit.

I fear if someone did broadside you, the bike would tip over with a harder impact of the ground.

Then again, the extra bikes into a spot is a good thought.

I have had a cute little rabbit take shelter by my front wheel.



Only problem is I was going 60 at the time.

That rabbit is living dangerously (considering the problem reported in these threads):

Was the rabbit taking shelter, or perhaps merely awaiting an opportunity?
