Great pictures, thanks for sharing. I will be in Minturn soon for several weeks and wanted to take some day trips over Weston Pass and Independence Pass.
Did you have to do any changes to your carburetor jets for the high altitude?
My KLR is completely stock.

i have a feeling my carb is stock as well, so you will notice some loss of power at 12k. but it doesn't bother me, been plenty of times successfully up and down mountains at 12k-13k, tomorrow will be at 14k. KLR is not known for its beastly power as is.

i think i had a brain fart and missed the opportunity, however at the time i was not sure how bad the road will be up top and did not want to be liable for damsel's safety.
i can't guarantee my own most of the time

Default Re: today was a good day

put in almost 300 miles today on a new tire. mostly around Tarryall.
good weather. empty trails.




this was west of Kenosha, had to turn around.



some snowy parts were a challenge, but doable.
