Horizons Unlimited: Canada West 2015

So the other week I clicked over the the Horizons Unlimited site and saw that the Horizons Unlimited Canada West 2015 Travelers Meet was coming up in Nakusp. Time for a hastily planned trip to BC! I’ve been in massive need for an escape lately anyway, and I highly recommend a bike through BC whenever […]

Install Heated Grips

I’ve compared walking into BLACKFOOT MOTOSPORTS in Calgary to a fat kid walking into Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory, and honestly, it really doesn’t get old because if you want it, they’ve either got it or can get it.

Eibach Rear Spring

Ideally, one would replace both the rear spring AND the shock, but I’m make of money right now, so I guess I’ll just have to deal with it, and do the next best thing. The stock rear spring that the KLRs come shipped with are aimed at the likes of a 155lbs of rider weight. […]

Progressive Front Springs

The KLR’s have the notorious habit of nosediving when braking, and honestly, could use some help. Kawasaki made a small effort with the 2008 release by upgrading the size of the forks from 38mm to 41mm, but they’re still far from being what they should be. For under $100, it really doesn’t cost a whole […]

Hand of the Desert, Chile

Chile’s Atacama Desert is the driest, most lifeless, non-polar desert on the planet. This a place where in 2003, NASA took duplicates of their Mars Viking Landers in an effort to test their instruments while looking for DNA. Viking 1 and Viking 2 both came back with negative results. Not only could they not find […]
