Montana

I know Dougly from great falls is here, but are there any more riders in Montana lurking around?

Hey Dude!

I am not from there, but I try to get out there as much as possible! My Dad lives in York, Montana...right outside of Helena if you are not familiar with the little town with the Famous York burger and of course you have to wash it down with Moose Drool on tap!

He is actually waiting for his 2007 KLR to arrive at the Helena Dealer as I type. I flew out there for the Testy Festy...Clinton, Mt...and we stopped at the Helena dealer and they had a used one and I told him I was looking at getting one and I guess he thought it was a good idea, also it helped that we stopped and talked to a guy at the festival that has his there and he went and traded his TTR230 in on one a couple of days later. He is a lurker here...Hi Dad!

I am hoping to get out there this spring and do some riding. I'll let you know when I am heading that way!

Anyone out there know how to do thew Doo! We will have to get him set up! I'll buy the burgers and the Drool!

We (dougly, mslamt from klr.net and myself) had a tech day this summer and we changed out a couple doohickies, subframe bolt upgrade, stainless brake lines, and some other little things. We had a good time and went for a ride when we were done. Dougly has the tools for the doo and between the three of us had enough knowledge to probably get anything done on a bike without worries. There's lots of great dual sport riding around here too, all you have to do is pick a direction.

I will have to agree with the great riding. He lives on Hedges, (I think thats how its spelled) if you heard of it. There isn't anyway you could take a bad picture for a "Ride Report". Of course that is pretty much the whole west side of Montana.

I am looking at spring to be out there next if not before! We will have to get everyone together!

Hey Elmo,
Let me know when and I'll be there! I'm willing to head down to your dads place and we can have a mini-tech day if you want. Like Dude said, we can get anything done you guys need. There is at least one rider on the .net site from Helena, not sure if he's over here though...Doug

Thanks and it sounds like a plan. My Dad picked up his new KLR this past Friday and put about 70 miles on it on Saturday. He likes it but is questioning the purchase of the Corbin Dished seat...he had it 3 weeks before he had the bike. I told him to give it a couple miles before he make his final decision. That of course just going by what I read here not from personal experience.

Montana Vagabons

Miles City has dual sport riders. I just got home from doing some riding in Arizona, California and New Mexico - I had to haul the bike down there and I was dissapointed to have to drive all the nice Colorado Mountain roads in the Suburban. I will have to go back to Colorado next summer. I purchased my KLR 650 in August 2007 - I have fallen in love with it. It is so great to be able to leave the pavement and enjoy the dirt & gravel roads.
