SLO town memories
Hey SLO-KLR, you must be a Cal Poly SLO grad. Saw your post about the the Hi Mountain ride and brought back memories.
I was there in the late 80's and a member of the Penguins. At the time the main event was the Hi Mountain Enduro, but now looks like they are doing a formal DP ride. If I recall, the Enduro was cut soon after I left due to not being able to get permission to ride on some private land or something like that. When I was there I had a 1986 KLR 600 and did some good DP rides. The Penguins did not have a DP section, so I ended up doing a few street rides with the club and trying to also do a few dirt rides with the guys as well but kind of hard to keep up when you are on a KLR vs. a CR, YZ, or Husky ... Unfortunately at the time there were not a lot of other DP riders (guess I was ahead of the curve), but sounds like that has changed in the last 20 years!
Sounds like it will be a great ride and wish I could be there. Would be a trip to ride some of the same roads on my newer (05) KLR that I did on the 86 ... But I am now in Boise Idaho so would be a bit of a haul. O'well, plenty of dirt up here to keep my occupied.
Have a great ride!
