EORCEME Hello, moved to Greenwood in august of 2015, any NS riders still around? I know I see at least one KLR on base and a few on the highway every now and then, as well as at the Wharf Rat Rally.

Nova Scotia Tech Day...

Al,
I replied on the other thread in this forum.
And also, if you haven't yet...check out the NSdual sport.ca forum. I've generated some interest in having a "tech day" in the spring, where there'd be a variety of bikes present. There seem to be 2 guys that host them, and one lives down your way!

East Coast Al [QUOTE=RobMac747;278922]First, what's the 646bph mean?? Now that we have that nagging question out of the way, this sounds good for the upcoming ridin season. Now all we have to do is find a few more guys and we'll have a crew to ride with. I moved back here from Windsor (Southern ON) where I lived for 15 years, I'm originally from NS and that was bizarre Al, when you mentioned your cottage in River John, my family's cottage growing up was on Caribou Island, not far at all from yours. I went to school and was friends with quite a few River Johnners. I'm trying to sell my Dad's house in Pictou, right now, so it sounds like we could all easily meet in the Pictou area at some point.
Al, didi you get my text about the new farkles/mods I got?
Conti TKC 80 tires (both)
Givi engine guards,
Tall windshield,
pivot pegs,
progressive fork springs,
handlebar riser
Stainless steel brake lines (front).
I'm thinking of using the KLR more for dualsport touring, logging roads and the like, and I am still looking at buying another , more nimble bike for playing around on. I've looked at a lot, most recently a WR250, but also looked at the KTM's and Huskies. Perhaps cheaper is better, at least initially, a used WR250 rather than a KTM 300, I just want something I can play in the woods with, but still drive on the road to get there. And I want it to be less work then throwing my KLR around, or worse, picking it up 5-6x in an afternoon. I'm going to get in touch with Lawrence and Kyle, 2 other KLR guys who I used to ride with last summer and perhaps we can use this forum as a hangout for the time being.
Later guys,
Rob

I did get you message, but I have not been getting any notifications from this site. Is there something that I did not do correctly? As I said before, I am looking forward to being a doohickey assistant.

I expect that I will check it out. Anyone else?

RobMac747 Hey guys, Dualsport.ca is a local forum, with more Nova Scotia specific trails, trips and fellow KLR guys. Check out some posts by Jacob_ns he's got some good maps of the Bowater trails (where Al and I went last year. Kelsow (site moderator) has some great maps of trips around the province as well, and some great photography. It's worth checking out.
646-your bog reference sounds waaayyy to familiar, I almost gave my self a heart attack pushing the big green monster out of a bog last summer, me and another guy got stuck and kept saying....it must end soon, lets keep going...you probably know the rest!

It's just an anonymous name I came up with years ago that's never taken on any forums, but you can call me Bernardt instead. (It's actually based on a room number and building name that I used to live in).

Should for sure hit some trails sometime. Had the bike cover off today and did some maintenance, but the roads are still too shitty for a ride.

I usually don't hit trails that are too challenging, but they often start easy and end up in a bog.

Hey 646 and Al

First, what's the 646bph mean?? Now that we have that nagging question out of the way, this sounds good for the upcoming ridin season. Now all we have to do is find a few more guys and we'll have a crew to ride with. I moved back here from Windsor (Southern ON) where I lived for 15 years, I'm originally from NS and that was bizarre Al, when you mentioned your cottage in River John, my family's cottage growing up was on Caribou Island, not far at all from yours.

Moved from Southern Ontario, but I didn't have a bike there. A lot of grid pattern farm roads all flat, straight and boring. Plus ridiculous insurance rates. Cheaper insurance more than makes up for the expensive utilities, beer and gas here.
