Comments I Get On My KLR







In all seriousness, I've accumulated over 135,000 combined miles on three different KLRs. In all that riding, I've never received a negative comment.

Pics or there is no KLR

I just saw a KLR the other day on the road. I was riding shotgun in my spouse's car and wanted to wave, but the TDI was too powerful and we left Mr MilkCrate in the dust.

j/k!!

But he did get stuck behind a tow truck, so I didn't get to see if it was anyone I know.

I only receive negative comments on my bike in the interweb.
On the road it's mainly admiration and astonishment from elderly people who did ride in their youth.
(However, it's no KLR.)

The KLR is my road bike. I have a KLX for more off road stuff.

Nice looking bike. The bumblebee a great choice.

Former KLR pilot here myself, 33,000 on one, now have migrated to a Versys project, much of everything the KLR wanted to be.

The comment I always get is:
"Is that a Harley?"

I'm a convert.

Mine has 725 miles in just over the first month of ownership, and I can see the Harley going up for sale this year.

It's just fun.

I also have a sunburst orange 2013. A teenage guy hopped out of a car at a fuel stop, and exclaimed "dude, your bike is f*cking sweet!" Just one of several compliments I have gotten since I bought it last fall.

I bought a KLR and haven't ridden the Harley since.
People don't believe me when I tell them.
I'm glad to see I'm not alone on that.
