New use for KLR, or any motorcycle for that matter, even a moped.

Went kayaking today and instead of taking two vehicles I put the KLR on the trailer, hauled it to the take out, dropped it off and locked it to the sign post. Took the vehicle to the put in and off we went down the Blue river. We get to the take out, I hop on the KLR and go back to the vehicle. Load the KLR back up and go get my buddy and the kayaks. Worked perfectly and saved a lot of gas from having to take two vehicles or saved the hassle of finding and paying for a shuttle. I need a larger chain to go through both wheels and frame though. I doubt anything would ever happen, but who knows, better safe then sorry.

I usta do that a lot with a bicycle. Just hide it back in the woods. Knew another guy that did the same thing with a moped.

Don't know if I'd do it with my KLR - probably not. But something like that sure saves time and hassle.

Not much float fishing round here, but now that I think about it, if I were floating a lot I might get a beater just for that.

I thought about the bicycle idea, but some of these locations can be far apart. And, holy cow, the hills involved today would have killed me after a day of paddling. Maybe if I knew the shuttle route was flat I would do it.

No doubt I think about what issues could occur, but a lot of these access areas are common fishing places as well. Most people are going to think I'm just fishing nearby and not mess with it.

I guess the nice thing about it is being able to get a ride in if I'm camping nearby, or ride to the nearest town for some food or whatever. It's a good option having the KLR available.

I'm with you on the bicycle issue after a days paddling.

I was mostly float fishing in southeastern OK. Our main floats were on a couple of long oxbows. We'd cover 5 or 6 miles of water and take out about a mile by road from where we put in. I walked it a lot of times.
