sand and mud machine!!

yep the mighty KLR has fierce traction with its new knobbies and just spent 4 hours slogging through the deep sugar sand and mud of southwest florida's forest trails. so now its settled and i need to let the OTHER motorcycle forums for lesser bikes know that they should trade up to the fantastic-ness of a klr650 right away

no pics, to be honest i expected deeper water over some sections and was scared to take any technology along. as it turned out, weve been so dry that the usual standing water was only swamp goo.

i believe a man would be a fool to mention any specific tire--or oil--in an online forum! the kawi isnt always facing the same direction its traveling, but once you get used to the wandering slides its easy to just power thru like a '70s big dual sport once you get any offroad-biased tires
