Links to sites with d/s knowledge
« on: March 03, 2006, 10:30:37 am »
Zonkelnut made me think of this idea (thanx man).  Lets post the sites (urls) where you get your d/s info from.  Please post the URL, BUT tell us what you can expect on the site and why its good.  As with all things in live expect to be tjirped if the site is not up to scratch.  I'll ask funacide to build a more 'formal' links section.  Our idea with this forum never was to pretend to know everything.  We would like to serve as 'hub' for local ride planning, chats, ride reports, products, etc etc.  If we can expand this to include links to sites with specific, bike-related knowledge - everyone will be better served.

Again thanx for the idea Zonkelnut :hello1: dink

So herewith

www.klr650.net - a bb forum US based with the most KLR knowledge at one location.  Helpful people - post a question and they will answer. Glenn runs the forum and is well acquainted with SA and this forum.

http://www.angelfire.com/ut/moab/  - Fred at Arrowhead.  He stocks aftermarket parts and accessories for KLRs and XRs.  I've bought from him before - his service is fast and prices are fair - good guy.  You can get your KLR's doohickey from him.

More to follow

Quote from: "wino"
kiler, keep track of the links and later on clean it up, e.g. have threads consisting of ta related sites, klr related sites, accessories etc. and keep the hairy russians out, please!


Agree Wino,

Also a section for general ds interest eg. advrider and touring for example: http://www.horizonsunlimited.com/ please.

www.ukgser.com - gs related stuff, they have a good technical section, the pub section gets a bit "strange" sometimes and is amusing in a special kind of way.

www.advrider.com - adventure riders, the best way to waste, er, i mean test the bosses bandwidth.
i'm not a complete idiot. some parts are missing.

Since stumbling across this site, I have no longer needed to get my DS fix from anywhere else  :D

However, fo a good site check out http://www.gravelseekers.com It's a site by a Nowergian mate of mine who came over for a loop of Australia on DS bikes.  Great photos and great stories.  You'll need broadband though!

www.thumpertalk.com

The best site for single cylinder ds / mx / enduro bikes. The DRZ section is the most active, you can get ANY info you need on your bike there.

There's quite a couple of bikers on the overland forums (mailinglists), and it is also through overland that I met all the guys I currently travel with.
