Cool post, brother. The infamous KLR has bitten more than one of us here and there and for some reason, we put up with them, pat them on the head and keep em going.

Yours, perhaps, should have been put down with a shovel to the back of the head....

but I respect you for your efforts.




The KLR is like the stone hammer of motorbikes.


"A firm, satisfying ride with ALL of the information from the road being transmitted and shared with the operator".

Dude, it's something else. I get recognized on the trail. Though considering I'm fully clothed, I think they're recognizing the bike. My dentist back home recognized me from it. How she saw it, I've no idea. But she was the one that broke it to my mother, who no doubt had cotton mouth and a suction tube nipping at her uvula at the time, that her full grown son was naked with his bike on the internet.

"That's gotta be photoshop. No one would do that, no way."

"Knowing Alex, that really happened...."

I love you, mom.


I'm gonna derail for a moment because I have something relevant to share with you in regards to this damn photo. After a resent internet search, I discovered that this photo has been reposted on several other websites. 60 search results.

USA, I'm assuming.


Denmark, or Germany...


Russia


Even some dude in Brazil that has apparently tagged it as his own.



Damn you, Hobbes.
Oh sure! I paste the pic in the wtf thread and CA STEW slaps my knuckles, 2 days later its on the front page and in rotation on every bike porn site.

I know man. It's a real bummer. I had no say in bringing that hammer down, and give you full permission to use it at will.

Would a signed photo and half a bag of Werther's Original make you feel any better? I'm here for you, bro.

Its absolutely amazing what you've done to keep Janis around.....long after %99.99 of the rest of us would have let her go. You actually have enough respect, devotion, and sentimentality to preserve the bike thats given you so many good memories. Right on brother

I, like most, would have moved on to a new bike. But then I've never invested that kinda mileage or memories into one bike.....this thread has made me think maybe I should tho.
You adventure guys are starting to rub off on me
You guys grab life by the balls, and really squeeze all there is to get out of it

Parepin, your are one crazy dude. Keep on rockin'.

You are right when you defend the KLR, in the right hands the KLR is a great bike and can do wonders.

I recently bought a DR650 and I my idea was to sell the KLR if I liked the DR. Well I like the DR and just can't make myself post the KLR for sale, cant't justify keeping it either. WTF, it only cost a few bucks a year to keep it.
