Three KLRs - SR-36 in Tooele, UT

I'm on night shift this weekend, but today after waking up, the wife and I went out for lunch. On the way down Main Street in Tooele, we passed by three KLRs that were making the turn off SR-36 (Tooele Main Street) onto 1000 North (heading west) possibly heading toward Miller Motorsports Park.

Two of them appeared to be Gen I (or perhaps a Gen I and a Gen II) - both were red. I didn't get a good look at the third one, but it was a darker color - possibly black.

During lunch I got to thinking that this may have been JBronko and his buddies - I got a PM from him last night asking if there were any dirt trails between Herriman and Tooele, because he and a couple friends were going to be heading out to "the racetrack" from Sandy, UT.

Yo JBronko! Was that you?

People should not be afraid of their governments. Governments should be afraid of their people.

That was us, but we had two shades of green and one red. We took your advice and went up Butterfield Canyon, over the mine, and down Middle Canyon into Tooele. Stopped off at the track to watch a little of the races, and since we were the only ones on dirt machines, we entered the bike show. Imagine three dirty dusty KLR's in a bike show at a sports bike event!

LOVE IT!!!

...and DAMN! I totally screwed up on which generation KLR I saw! I was driving my truck at the time, and was trying to pay attention to the traffic in the intersection and still see the bikes as I drove by. It just so happened that all I got a look at (a glance, really) was mainly the tail end of the bikes because you guys were making the turn as I passed by headed north.
