2000 KLR650, end of last year up on Guanella Pass road with a bunch of yellow aspens around me. I call it Muttbike, no pedigree. Finally sold the CR500R this year. Those things will kill ya.

Another - Representing Louisiana here! (actually when possible I D/S ride in Arkansas) Once you taste the good stuff it gets addictive. We do a couple AR Rides each year usually about a week long each time. The rest of the time I spend it riding around national forests in LA, MS and occasionally TX.
A converted CX500, a plated XR400, a DR250 and a plated TTR125 round out our current stable.





Camping with the Bro-In-Law and his KLR:

Good pics EnduroRdr. I see ya have GoPros on your helmets. Can I ask how they work out being mounted there (any wind resistance at hwy speeds)? I had thought about mounting mine there ( have a flip down visor lever in the way), but ultimately ended up putting it on the front fender where you have your fender bag (assuming tire bars) at.

Are any of your videos posted online?

Wind not too bad - but then we rarely go much over 60mph.

I think this link will go to my vids.

I got my endorsement in April & recently bought a new to me 2005 Yamaha XT225. Today I took the Dirt Class and plan to soon tackle the Trail Class. I want to learn more about riding technique before getting on the pavement with DH on short rides (he has a KLR650).

If you are new to motorcycling, there's a good book on Dual Sport riding techniques that you might find helpful.

Check this out: Essential Guide to Dual Sport Motorcycling: Everything You Need to Buy, Ride, and Enjoy the World's Most Versatile Motorcycles by Carl Adams | 9781884313714 | Paperback | Barnes & Noble

Good luck.

Bob
