Up to the lake...started out sunny...but the weather turned on me

Took the KLR for a long afternoon ride. Started out sunny, started pouring rain about 45 minutes after I left my house. I had my route map in the map holder of my tank bag, so I wasn't gonna quit until I followed the entire route that I had planned. The rain only lasted 45 minutes, but it was a steady. I slowed the pace a bit, and just enjoyed the ride. Didn't get as many photo ops as I would have liked, because of the rain, but here are a few. As I am posting these pics, I am realizing that my bike is the main focus of all the pics. Guess I'm just so proud of it! Although I feel that she deserves no less, next time I'll get more scenery in the background and just a tiny bit less KLR!

P.S.- I ordered new tires yesterday...the original stock rear is gettin really worn in the center. I'm going with the Avon Distanzia's. I don't do much off roading, and I wanted a tire that was great on pavement and some gravel roads and whatnot. We'll see how they do.

Nothing wrong with having a center piece, ....

A guy at work once said, scenery is nice, but if you don't have a focal point, ie: individual or ???, then it is just a picture. Keep the bike in the pics it makes it personal and more interesting.

Previous ride was a 2007 KLR Black/Silver, I miss it..
Looking to get back into KLR's sometime soon.

Put the bike in one of the bottom corners if you want more of the landscape. Works even for pictures of people and landscapes.
