Hi All,

I've been hanging around here for some time now and finally realized I might have something to offer: I've got doohickey tools if anyone is looking. I'm in Torbay but I tend to "get around". I did my doo and do most of my own wrenching and will happily offer whatever assistance and encouragement I can (while I help drink your beer )

I've got a 2002 c8 model that I bought last year while visiting Ottawa and rode home on (port aux basques ferry, argentia is for Nan and tourists). I split my riding time between the klr and a harley roadglide and tend to take the road less traveled whenever reasonable. I'm not a very experienced dirt rider but I'm enjoying exploring the side roads and trails that I find. I'm also thinking of having a try at bike camping this year, if summer ever arrives.

Detour

Are you still riding the KLR?. I just bought a 2014 yesterday, pick it up on Friday, and the doohicky is on my list to do. I live up in Lab City, so if you are ever planning a trip up here I can host you. Cheers

omg! Somebody replied sorry it's taken me ages to catch up on this, I was beginning to think I was the only rider in our part of the world on this forum. Yes, I've still got my Klr, it's become my favourite toy and probably put twice the klicks on it than my other bike. My cousin has a '08 that's more like your '14 and its not hard to see the improvements Kawasaki has made over the years. I helped him do the doo on his bike and, while I'd probably do it on any klr for the peace of mind value, the factory doohickey on his '08 was much more robust looking than the crappy looking one I pulled from my '02. Mine was broken w/ 11000km on it, his was still ok with 20k+. Regardless, eagle mikes version is still tops.

Labrador is on my wish list for sure, always wanted to do the loop; ferry into Blanc sablon, ride the Tlh, see the dams in Quebec and return via nb / ns. Might be sooner than you think. I'll drop you a pm. Happy trails
