I rode it about 30 miles. We got about 15 inches of snow on Friday. Highways are pretty much dry again, except where melting snow flows across the roadway.

Temp got to 50 so I took a 35 mile ride to lunch. It was windy and very gusty, but the KLR handled it pretty well. I think it handles the wind as well as or better than my LT, even with the big Givi Trekker case on the back. Sure was nice to get back on the road after the long winter.

Now I just need to get my LT fuel lines and radiator hoses replaced and get it buttoned up and off my lift so I can load up the KLR and get the T-Bob installed.

Swapped in my other set of wheels with new tires. Installed a new set of crash bars.

Changed the oil, filter, adjusted the doo... Replaced the chain and sprockets 15/43 - Got to use my MotionPro T-6 Chain tool. It's always good to re-familiarize yourself with tools you rarely use.

In the USA we have many fast food restaurants with Drive UP service. But Ride IN service is kinda' over the top, Dicky!

I installed the Eagle Manufacturing caliper bracket that showed up in the mail today.
Its very nicely finished an the fit is perfect. I did not like the Tusk aluminum bracket.
I can see it being a problem over time.
