    Closing out the year and into 2017

    July we ran down to Prewitt Ridge along the California Coast. Three XR's two were 650's. All the bikes were loaded for camping as a shake down for Baja in Jan 2017






    I packed too much and had to use my stuff sack in addition to my GL Coyote bag. That's not gonna happen for Baja




    All the bikes ran excellent! It was a 500 mile weekend.



    I didn't get much riding in the next few months

    I've been prepping it for Baja though.

    Baja Prep for our 1k mile trip at the end of January:

    Raised bike to stock height. Required replacing lowering link with stock link and raising forks in the tripleclamps. I also adjusted the sag. It was super soft before.

    New NGK DPR9Z plug (one colder for the long days in the sand)

    Oil change w/filter

    New Maxxis Desert IT tires will go on in the next week.

    Installed a Tach, and took one of my LED lights off the KLR and mounted it to my barkbuster






    It's bright


    New IMS footpegs ( I don't trust my el-cheapo noname ones I got on Ebay)


    New Devol Disk guard




    New fuel petcocks from JustGasTanks.com (my old ones were both leaking)


    Flush mounted LED blinkers on the rear (had to put in a LED blinker relay) now I'm LED front and rear on the turn signals. No more broken rear signals from drops!



    The front signals are built into my barkbusters.

    Wow.. A whole year goes by like that - Snap!

    Baja in Jan 2017 was killer...
    The little XR4 took me on the 1K mile loop with not a single issue.

    I went with 23 of my closest friends


    Bahia De Los Angeles



    El Arco abandoned Army base



    Fully Loaded in the cactus forests


    I made a new Friend who fed me fresh Scallops and a cup of Coffee


    A few from the road
