Sounds cool. Another trip to consider. I have some land up in northern MN, Just north of Cass Lake. It's on a lake called Mission. There are just 2 houses on it. I am planning at least one ride up this summer. Pretty rough camping(which I really enjoy) great scenery. There is a casino about 5 miles away. Lots of fire trails and gravel roads. The last time I stayed there the casino was only $50 a night. There is also the national forest which is gorgous camping east of Cass Lake. There is a lot of great riding up there.

Nearly neighbors

I am in Ankeny Iowa, real close. I don't have a KLR yet but am looking for a good used one now. Bike caming is awsome. Used to do it all the time. I will keep in touch when the KLR is in the garage.---------Rethy

Thats sounds cool. I picked up my green 06 just before Christmas on ebay for $3300. Only mod was highway pegs. He also buthered the seat for 2 up.
I bought a saddleman gel seat cover and pelican box for a trunk and I am read for less that $3500. I have been out a couple times when it hit 40 degrees. I put on 60 miles. Way to much fun. I did about 15 on gravel and I go the brain storm to ride across the state on only gravel this summer. Let me know if you are in.

Later,

Im in

I am definately in on that one. That would be a great time. I am currently stuggling with new or used purchase. The writeups on the 08 really brag them up. I have time, if a smokin deal on a used falls in my lap I will probably go that route. The future looks bright Weedhopper. HEHE, I have a sick sense of humor.------Rethy
