Yep, thats me alright. With the exception of a "strong" head or
crosswind (not including a tailwind which never seems to happen up
here) my bike will constantly gets 50-55 @ 75. When I got the bike
a couple of years ago the previous owner had a jet kit in and pipe on
and it ran like crap. I pulled it all off this last spring, cleaned
and overhauled, synched the carbs, adjusted the valves, and walla.
This was a Ca bike and all the pollution control stuff was pulled by
the previous owner. I also try to burn only non-oxygenated fuels.
I know it make a huge difference in my jetski, snowmobiles . My kids
go to college (the fighting Sioux, UND) 210 miles from home and I have
made numerous trips to visit them this last year. Leave with a full
tank and fill up when I get there. The Interstate is near by, put the
throttle lock on and don't stop until I get there.
I really don't want to sell the bike but I have a burning desire to do
some back road touring across Wy and also a trip to the Arctic
Circle. So I am looking to get a KLR 650. With 2 kids in college
and 2 other bikes to maintain I can't afford to maintain 4 bikes, so
something has to go.
