I loved my 08 KLR and my Super Tenere is just what I was looking for, a KLR with HP, suspension, good brakes, shaft drive, etc, etc.

Is that a nightmare?

Come on, are all of you ex KLR owners? Was this bike so good or you are a group of nostalgic grandpas??
I am still a current KLR owner!

If you want to feel better about your KLR, ride a S10 for a few miles off the pavement. No the S10 doesn't have chain drive or a doohickey but it more than makes up for it with collapsible rims, a suicidal oil sump and crappy ergos all wrapped up in a porky 600 lbs package. What a deal.

He's just a shit stirring troll. The first few hundred times it was funny but now it's just like a skipping record. If you don't like the S10 then don't buy it.

Does the wfo-pete stand for Whine Fucking Often? You'd complain if you got hung with a new rope.

I am beginning to believe that.

Reminds me of another forum I frequent. I bought Goldwing this summer so that Linda would do more longer distance riding with me. It was worked great for that.

The GL1800 Forum has great technical information but is full of WFO's that complain about everything all the time. Most of them didn't see the humor when I suggested they change the forum name to the "Grumpy Old Men Forum".

Why a KLR if you can have a SUper Ténéré?

Come on grandpa's, forget your old fashioned KLR (and wfopete) and ride the incredible Super Ténéré. You can do the same but more refined and fun!

Still have both. Use the S10 as a daily driver commuter bike and the KLR for anything more challenging than gravel roads. Funny thing, last weekend a group in Arkansas did a S10 "Fall Color Tour" ride. Everyone opted for the more Tarmac route except one other guy and myself as I led us onto the dirtier side of the ride.




Too bad I didn't have my KLR, I could have just gone around this little issue but I was on the S10 and well...you know.



Pretty much sums it up:

My old beat up KLR makes a great big city commuting bike here in Texas. It is cheap to operate, goes 300 plus miles between fill-ups, and I don't care what the Texas Sun does to it sitting in the parking lot all day.

I didn't know that you actually owned one. Still if the bike is the pile of crap that you say it is then sell it. Why would you own a vehicle that you detest? Move on to something else that makes you happy.

I'm not one of those fan boys who claims that the S10 is perfect because its not. However, there isn't a perfect bike out there. I think my S10's attributes far outweigh its faults.
