I once hauled a small refrigerator on my KLR. Unfortunately, no picture.

Frank - You are a man after my own heart. The VW dealer (where the box came from) all insisted I was crazy to attempt to carry the box because size and weight on any motorcycle. I told them that if they can carry five people, two dogs, a goat and three chickens on a scooter in SE Asia then I should have no problems with one little box in FL!! :lol: I tried to take bets but none of the eight employees would put there wallet where their mouths were!!! It was fun to play with them ...

Please post some pics of the KLR on your travels (any bike really) ... I know you have to have GB's of photos Frank!!!!! Post'em up!!! Hope your getting out to ride, Kim says it been pretty warm and no salt on roads. Take care

Well, Don, it has been pretty mild here, but I still seem to pick the worst days to ride. The KLR has a pretty good coating of road salt. I'll try to find time to hose it off tomorrow.

Here's a snapshot of the KLR in the parking lot of a Harley dealer in Colorado Springs. The previous day I had a flat tire on I 70 in Kansas. Unfortunately, the rubber rim strip broke at the valve hole during the roadside repair, and I had to ride in to Colorado Springs with the spoke ends poking into the tube. The good folks at Pikes Peak Harley installed a new tube and rim strip for me, and I was back on my way. Since then, I wrap a couple of layers of gorilla tape around the rim wells and dispense with those flimsy rubber strips.
