My bike looked just like yours till the first deer I hit. Now it's bed liner. The KLRs took everything we put in front of them and wanted more. Love these bikes.

You know Colorado should be next on your list. I can show you a cool relaxing creek to break your foot in.

Cottonwood pass rd is seriously closed for a while. This is a bigger problem than first appears. This is in the leg between buena vists and lake city. I went over tin cup pass as an alternative yesterday. I do not recommend doing that...even on a 500. Find a good way around.

Re: Father and Son NMBDR, New Mexico Backcountry Discovery

Thanks for the info RG. We probably will not be doing the COBDR until
next summer.
Is the middle of July a good time to do this one?
Is the problem with the cottonwood pass road snow, or just damage?

Re: Father and Son NMBDR, New Mexico Backcountry Discovery

I just finished doing an eight day ride with a mix of camping, hotels, and cabins, with Rsquared and his son (28 yrs old). We rode in Montana, Idaho, and Wyoming. It was a blast and seeing those two experience it together REALLY makes me want to do a similar trip when my son is old enough.

Getting loaded down KLRs through deep sand can be a real challenge! Well done!

We had a blast. The KLRs did amazing. Don't know that I would have wanted to do it on anything bigger would have been very difficult in a lot of places.

Were you both running on stock suspension? The stock springs are not real stiff. I replaced the rear and fork springs on my 02 KLR with stiffer springs and it made a HUGE difference in how well the bike handled, loaded and unloaded. I still used the stock shock. I just put a 420 series spring on it. I originally used the Rosler progressive springs in the forks but later swapped for the Race Tech straight rate springs and they were MUCH better. I stayed with stock damping stuff and I think I used a slightly heavier oil in the forks. Overall, I think I spent about $250-300 on it. Money well spent!!

The other inexpensive thing that made a huge difference was repacking and re-torquing the steering head bearings. They often come minimally greased and slightly loose from the factory. Mine were really loose and had very little grease. Fixing it made the bike track MUCH better, especially in stuff like deep gravel and sand.
