Edmonton- Whitehorse- Campbell river- Edmonton
Some life changes in the works. I'm parting ways with my job in edmonton, I'm taking one in whitehorse.
So the final thing i need to do is a weld test and the job is mine.
My house is already sold (i was going to be moving for work anyways, 3 hour commutes suck) so i got nothing tying me down, and I have enough equity coming back my way,I really don't need to work for 3-6 months if i didn't want to.
SO hey, I figure instead of just flying in, I'll ride my bike up, get the job (or not) then carry on to the coast, catch the 18 hour ferry to the island then go see some friends and family. make a vacation of it since i haven't had one of those in years....
Plan is to leave a few days after my last day at my current job... after i pack up the house and put most of it in storage.
few last thing to do to the bike,
swap the 16 tooth for a 17 tooth, double check the valves (again, this ticking from the head makes me paranoid, even though half of all KLRs seem to have it) change the oil,
and top up the fluids as required.
big the first really big trip with a bike (currently 500 km is the furthest i've gone in a day)
I have a spare clutch cable wired up, spare oil filter and gasket maker, couple of spare bolts and enough tools to tear the engine down (I made it a challenge when I rebuilt the motor this last winter)
Anything else I should bring?
