Re: 2006 Beta REV 3 $2950

I sold my KLR through an ad on ADVrider to a guy that drove up from Kings Bay Georgia to Annapolis MD. He drove up with a trailer, rode the bike to the end of my street and back and couldn't pay my asking price fast enough. I hate when that happens. My wife asked me "He didn't haggle with you at all...

Re: Helmet Headsets?

I've been using Sena for years for up to 4 riders on an intercom all day long. The new version, the 30K, opens up mesh network intercom and makes it easy (once you get it set up) to get a group of riders all on the intercom channel. I've always considered it as much a safety thing as listening to my...

Re: Weather!!!

2018 was very rainy. It seemed like every ride I went on, I was checking weather. I got rained on, it rained the day before, or I was packing up qnd leaving as it started raining... Hoping and praying for a little dryer 2019. Though its already pissing me off as I want to ride on Wed. Not sure if t...

Re: Riding Michaux

When we talk about Michaux we are ONLY talking about dirt roads. There are legal offroad trails in Michaux however they dont allow dirtbikes. ATVs only (total BS, dont get me started on a rant) I came across this dual sport map of Michaux. Is this a map of just the dirt roads and not the ATV trails...

Re: Weather!!!

Nothing's more frustrating that having a new bike in the garage and not being able to get out and enjoy it. I put a battery pig tail on my WRR so I've been out riding a bit on the road dodging ice patches just to break it in. https://photos.smugmug.com/Motorcycles/Yamaha/i-xxWDjCZ/0/9a19f43a/L/20190...

Re: Riding Michaux

I'd be in for a March/April ride or two. I'm itchin' to get out and get this new WRR dirty. I saw were the trails up in the Seven Mountains area aren't open until the weekend before Memorial Day this year. The trails in Michaux are open all the time?

Re: It followed me home....

I ran a D606/MT-21 combination on my KLR and always liked those tires. I've railed on them on a twisty road and rode rutted up muddy slopes - all good for a DOT legal tire. I've already bought the rim locks and will probably switch the tires out before I head up to Seven Mountains this spring. Speak...

Re: Post your Ugly Mug!

Not exactly the lightest dirtbike out there... Though Sallydog has ridden some hairy stuff on his old KLR. Are you already a dirt/offroad guy? Or is this KLR the "light weight" bike that you plan to learn to ride dirt on? The KLR is a fat pig but we're going to try to do the full Trans America Trai...
