Yes, its a sad day, I have but just one more ride with the old KLR650. She has been good to me though. I am lucky enough to have logged in over 100,000 miles on her.
Alright, if you have stopped crying
LOL. I might have abit of a last journey to start to tell you about. This might take a minute or two, and pics will follow.
The Skinny. My brother and I have an opportunity to be able to basically have our KLR's and ourselves transported to Yakima Washington starting June 27th. All our expenses are paid. We unload the bikes in Yakima and head back home to Ohio, the long way! Yes its a good opp. BUTT!!! there is always a BUTT somewhere 8).
My bike is totally ragged out, uses about a 3/4 quart every tank full. I have very few miles left on my chain sprockets and brakes. I was fortunate enough that a friend donated some half worn stock tires to me. My brothers bike (he just bought) long story short, I just got the case half back from the machinist today, and the gear and fork needed to rebuild my brothers tranny in his KLR.
These are the bikes we are taking, and this is Saturday night, and we are leaving Wednesday night! I have to have his bike going tomorrow, Work Monday and Tuesday, overtime, and get my bike and gear ready Wednesday. Yes Lord willing we can make it happen. And I am going to take you guys along for the journey, through the net.
Now I have a feeling we might run into some difficulty along the way, but, that only adds to the adventure
We were hoping to maybe meet up for coffee or brunch(or something) with some other guys/gals, on our way back home. If you are interested please post your location, maybe we can start a map or something and connect the dots. Might only ever get to do this once?
Would appreciate it! Hey I might even buy
Oh yea, why is this my last ride on the 650? Because if and when I get back, I will be installing the 705 kit that is currently sitting in my garage. Schnitz racing is on top of the game. And I will hopefully have a complete writeup of the install with dyno's and the works, and of course a field test!(my favorite)
You really did not think I was going to get rid of my KLR?,... did you? 8)
