Cheap entry fee, but the farkle lure takes down many a budget. Is an outfitted $7k KLR better than a…F650, LC_, XR? I think that's the question: WHAT WILL YOU ULTIMATELY SPEND AND WHAT BIKE DO YOU GET FOR THE $$$$$ ?
For me, doing the mods on my motorcycle is just part of the hobby. I would have probably done the same thing no matter what motorcycle I bought, needed or not. I have always liked tinkering and trying to make something work better for me. It's not about the money, it's just something that I enjoy.
It's the journey, not the destination.
