One of it's missions would be for riding of the easy routes on organized dual sport rides two up. I bought my KLR for that purpose but am questioning it's lack of power and um.... less than stellar suspension to get the job done.

Maybe there is a better thread to pose this question, if so, please redirect me. I chose this one due to the proliferation of off-road riding shots.
Yes, a couple times. just remember it's it's pretty heavy when loaded with 2up & we did some great single track in N GA. The suspension does ok, turned the preload up on the rear...she ain't no lightweight....if you are an experienced rider you'll be fine. We are planning ride to CO next year & my wife wants to come we will be 2 up.
