Yep, definitely going back there one day. Route 52 is a favourite of mine and there's plenty of gravel detours in all directions shooting off it.

You haven't ridden 52 until you've ridden it in the middle of a storm in the middle of the night...

Our next bit of excitement was a certain Triumph coming into difficulties about oh, 15km from Danniverke and the nearest petrol station...Luckily we had a Kawasaki petrol tanker with us and were able to transfer some petrol between bikes. Also luckily, the battery on my camera was not completely flat so I could document the operation...

Hmmmm.....something in that...just something.....



....sounds familiar


The good, old KLR to the rescue

Sounds like an awesome day.
And the weather!!!!

As for fitting speakers...to make a little more room, peel the liner back to the bare styrofoam and reshape that with a soldering iron, melting it into the exact shape you want without creating lumpy edges or ridges...which often happens when trying to do the same job with a knife/ blade/ Dremel etc.

Mind those fumes, though...only do this in a very well ventilated area.
