Of course, I also have a KLR and a KLX - not particularly a Kaw fan, just luck of the draw when I wanted a bike of a certain type. I still like the KLR, but am thinking that it might make more sense to jump straight from something like the Versys 1000 to a bike that's truly dirt worthy - and with respect, any bike that weighs as much as a GS and the like, is not.

I still think it's *not pretty*, but I don't care. It's a good bike, and a good value.
Well, let's see some pictures of it.....
