    Had a good weekend at Church. Might see some really good ski lines on the horizon of the first pic. Only one nap for my bike. It's heavy.

    Rode about 50+ miles of jeep road and technical singletrack yesterday and saw no one. Like to the point is was kinda weird because everywhere else was generally packed with leafers and Oktoberfesters. What an awesome day on the WRs.

    Imma post some accumulated stoke from this spring and summer. I haven't been able to ride since mid-July due to a wrist injury... which happened on one of the bikes.

    Let's keep this stoke-fountain going in the hopes that La Nina delivers us a pound-town of a winter...

    Sorry, I either wasn't very clear earlier, or misspoke. I had a CRF230L. But it was stolen a few weeks ago during my PNW trip. So I need to either replace it with something that will work for moto-bike shuttling, or possibly lower my XR400 to make it work. I'm still looking into lowering the XR but eventually will replace with something newer. XR already has a lower seat and lowering link but seat height is still 36".

    Haha, yeah chain was at max stretch. Pic was toward the end of my trip with plenty of riding on it by that point. It also had oil leaking from the shifter lever, seemed to be a recurring issue on this bike. And I'd found a crack in the subframe from carrying the weight of the MTB, just like climberevan said would happen. Hopefully the thief takes his old lady for a ride on it and finds that crack the hard way. 230L is still an option for replacement although there are very few for sale right now.

Carrying a tall and expensive MTB off the back of your bike might be one of those times; I don't know, haven't gotten around to getting a motorcycle running since I got a MTB again.
    No worries! Bike height wouldn't be an issue for me if it weren't for the MTB shuttle aspect. Even with 32" seat height on the CRF230L it gets sketchy sometimes on the sand and loose rock we have down here. In sand the MTB can send the moto back and forth in a comical but scary series of overcorrections that are very hard to recover from. If I were to drop the moto with a MTB on the rack that's 300lb of moto slamming the MTB into the ground. Not hard to imagine the MTB carrier getting torn right off the moto, a cracked subframe or damage to the MTB fork, bars or frame. No way will I try the moto shuttle with a seat height that's much higher than 32.

    Does the comment about KLX suspension being better apply to the KLX 230? There are some new 2022 models in stock locally at pretty reasonable price. 250L isn't made anymore and I don't see many used ones. From what I've read KLX 300 is just the 250 with a bigger bore kit. I'm not very familiar with Kawasaki.

    Not many WR250Rs for sale around here unfortunately. With taller seat height to start it would be a hard bike for me to make work. Sounds like a great bike otherwise.

It's pretty simple to just bolt extensions to the frame rails and go across them with a tray and the result will be rock solid.
    haha, when I read this reply earlier on my phone I thought you were referring to building a new MTB carrier and reinforcing the moto subframe for some reason. I actually paid a visit to Joe Hauler a few days ago and ordered up a custom moto carrier. It'll have a 3-4" rise so it doesn't get dragged as much and will be a lot more solid than the Versahaul. And have extras like rear receiver to plug the 1up rack into, gas can carrier, etc. I asked about a dual receiver setup and he didn't think it was worth it. I can always add a second arm/receiver later if needed.

    Nice, that sounds like a great solution.

    If you do want to build a new & better bike carrier for whatever moto you end up with, swing on by. I'm on Gen. 4 & 5 of mine, currently on the CB500F & CB500X. This version has mounts for QR, 12x100, & 15x110, staggered so that the bars are as close as possible to my head without being a problem.Click image for larger version.

    I had the pleasure of visiting Bobcatsig's gearages I passed up the Or/Wa coast. Dude has a serious Austro/Italian obsession...NTTIAWWT

    Had to mop up the drool, but the bike in his living room is even better the ones relegated to the garage.

    I agree it is a constitutional right for Americans to be assholes...its just too bad that so many take the opportunity...
