first I needed a running bike ... lots of drama ensued ... let's try to tackle the top end on the "A" bike ...





recalcitrant aftermarket wrist-pin clip ...



dremel carnage leads to free old piston ...



top end progress ... and the abyss-of-doom ... dropped a bolt down the cam-chain tunnel ...

On to the "B" bike:



needed to remove the ignition cuz we lost the key ... had a spare ignition with a key in the garage ... more dremel work to get the riveted stock ignition removed by cutting slots in the rivets and using a big hammer and an old school impact wrench ...

and the "B" bike rolls again ... new D606s and heavy duty tubes from MotoJava, new air cleaner (thanks Mark!) and spark plug ...

KLR off non-op status and insured in CA, Tourist Card, Mexican Insurance, Medivac life-flight insurance ... fooled with SPOT device, maybe that works: SFMCjohn's SPOT[ride over, link removed ... ]

found my stupid passport ...

so we'll see ... bike still not packed ...

super-long-range vague plan is to try to meet the BARF Baja 2019 crew in Bay of LA to demonstrate to my plated-dirt-bike friends how KLR guys do things ...

figure there's a 5% chance of actually showing up in BoLA ... if I get cold or wet that'll hurt my feelings and I'll turn around and go home ...

Cool riding a legend got the GI Joe bike!

How do the D606s do on the wet pavement? I used the rear on LAB2V and they were pretty good except on the hard packed stuff. Plus they howl on the freeway O_o'

they've always been predictable on pavement for me, wet or dry ... I don't really push them at all ... from what I've read the D606s have a good reputation for pavement behavior ... sometimes run the MT-21s and don't notice any difference ...

you're a faster/better rider than me, so maybe you'd notice a difference ... my tires mostly hold my rims off the ground ...

the D606s do howl like heck on the freeway, though ... I can notice that ...
