Here is a short video clip that I shot this past Saturday at, Loki Clan Wolf Refuge.

The prophesy comes true
Hey, at least I didn't say cheap. I have heard that term tossed around when KLR's are present at rides. <grin>

Sorry Barry, I didn't mean to hijack your thread. I will go silent now unless I am discussing your charities or the sale/giveaway of your old bike.

Thanks for all the help over the years Barry. Your walk throughs have been instrumental to every repair I have done.

Good luck with the KLR!

So, just out of curiosity

If YOU win the bike what will you do with it?

I know a lot of people plan on just giving it back and re-auctioning it. But someone must have plans to actually receive the bike.

I don't think anyone wants the tire pile

I'm going to make our dirt roads cry for mercy.

While I would like to show my altruism, I am always careful not to mess up my bike too badly.

The Black Lab Special is a straight attack vehicle. Look out.

as for the tires: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hagersville,_Ontario

It makes a great starter bike for somebody, I don't need another bike, but I would take it and sell it.
