Went to Jonah's place in Ellensburg ^^ for all the Dakar fans. It was so random!

I'm in Canada!
so far it sucks... everything is different, is expensive, my gps doesnt work, I dont have maps, there is no free camping, and it freaking BIG!
Anyways, It's been a while since I got access to internet, I have been doing a lot of off-road traveling lately = no big town = no wifi.

Day 5 - Wilsonville, OR to Packwood, WA

Day 6 - Packwood to Pateros near lake Chelan - got a flat there..

Day 7 - Pateros to Penticton, Canada.

Did the Section 2 and 5 of the WABDR :

Figured out the gps issue - I need a PC to process the tracks so it'll have to wait a little longer...

Back on the road tomorrow! I will post the tracks as soon as I figure out a way of making my gps work on my mac...

After 4 days of intensive work on the bike, I feel it is finally time to hit the road.

See new stuff? Basically, everything that is Flashy Fluo Green has be made or modified.
And some is hidden behind the fairing ^^

No worries I will post on each individual mods I did on future posts, and How I did it so You too can do it yourself.

Right now I want to get out of town, I am tired of cars, traffic, and multiple lanes road in general. Although when I was looking at the maps and planning the route, I can honestly say that the idea of traveling alone in the middle of nowhere, scares the crap outta me.

Finally, Thanks Aleks and Wilder ( the Motoshop in South SF ) for making this adventure possible ... for my ride. ^^


Let the adventure begin!

8 hours later, 4 o'clock, at my uncle's place in Los Gatos.
happy to be inside and warm. Boy it was windy outside.
the bike rode surprisingly well despite all the weight I had in the back - see pics previous post. Although far from doing a 50 mpg, this KLR definitely winning my heart. ^^
Tomorrow will go back to the Motoshop in South San Francisco to work on the weight issue - try to figure out a way to cut down the ammo can for my laptop - and finish up the bike for the real adventure coming up!
