Chime in here fellow Albertans. let's see just how many of us there are in this fine country of ours, and maybe even get together for a ride or two at some point in time.

Since I can't find a more appropriate location for this post, I'll just put it here: I lost an Alpinestars jacket liner while riding my KLR in McLean Creek (near Bragg Creek, just west of Calgary.) It's black and grey. It'll be covered in mud and, yes, I know this is an extremely long, long shot that someone will find it and stumble on this post. Can't hurt to try!

I'm back! I just bought another 2001 KLR, exactly like the one I rode to Panama and back from Calgary a few years ago! I'm super stoked to be back on the bike on I love. I'm planning to ride this one from Germany to Iran this fall (though there are still a few barriers to that trip including a slight shortage in funds and the distinct absence of an Iranian visa, but that's another story!) And, speaking of which, before I go, I still need to sell my 2006 V-Strom which is currently on display at the Bow Cycle showroom in Calgary, AB... so, if you know of anyone who's in need of such a machine, send them to Bow! Also, if you're keen to hear how my trip to the Middle East is shaping up, you can search for details on my website. Yeah, KLR's!

I am in Fairview AB, an hour east of Grande Prairie. I do get to Edmonton alot though. If you are into a trip to the north country let me know. I have been through most of it now. E mail me any questions or maybe we can swap stories over a beer some time. The run to Deadhorse Alaska is a Must Do for any dual sport rider. Being in Alberta is a bonus. I ran into people from all over the planet, some who saved and planned for years ,to rip through what is basically in our back yard. Rubber side down,

From Hythe, AB. Just acquired a 1997 KLR650. Going over it this winter getting ready for spring. Would anyone have a puller for the flywheel rotor I could borrow? Want to do the doohickey mode.

South Rockies

Bob Pisko
Blairmore (Crowsnest Pass)

'08 KLR 650 (425 KM's as of tonight)

Pics to come. Best riding anywhere right out my door - pack my 4-piece flyrod & a box of flies, a couple of cameras, a few bananas & apples & go either north to Kananaskis or south to Castle Crown Wilderness or west to the Kooteneys - or northeast to the Whaleback and the Oldman. Not to mention 1500 km's of marked triails . . . all starting either in town or within 10 mihutes.

the KLR sure likes its new home! :)

From Calgary. A new KLR owner as of this week. Looking forward to some different challenges vs my normal street riding. Can't wait for the roads to clear (again). I did see one guy on his bike as I went to work on Wednesday and speaking to Bow Cycle that same day he mentioned that he'd had 6 guys ride their bikes in on Saturday. Back to snow again though so we'll have to wait a while to ride again.

Hi Albertans!

Picking up my new 2009 black KLR next week - my latest thumper after a break for few years.

First one was a Yamaha XT600E traded on a BMW F650, and now the KLR. Itching to take it out to the mountains west of here - Rocky Mountain House.

:)
