I loved my KLR650. Great dependable bike. The G650X is in a whole another league though. I'd like to ride a KTM 690 Enduro R. The aprilia RXV 5.5 is a beast, but requires race bike like care.

These (above) are the compromises made for cost and street-ability. And they can only be overcome to the point where you should buy a different bike.

Cool! Looks like a TECH DAY with the local KLR riders Club. Am I close here? Good to see such a massive turn out. Just read three more ride reports tonight ... all featured KLR's in Latin America.

If you're bored ... maybe you could help these guys out? They've towed this KTM half way across Russia.

Good Pics there John. Love your clubhouse in the City!
Hey Adv Grifter,

Love this pic ... Copper Canyon is on my dream-ride list ...

Thanks, we love our little clubhouse, too ...

Hope to see you there, soon! Anyone reading this is welcome, also, even ACTUAL pick-up truck drivers ... meetings every Thursday night, everything a KTM rider may wish to quaff at our fountain, 18th & Folsom in San Francisco ... we can see if there are more KLRs or KTMs parked out front ... usually a toss-up!

Another motorcycle religious zealot,
-- SFMCjohn

What's with the slamming on KTMs? You fellas realize that by doing so it ultimately makes you look bad, right?

I mean, you do know that, right?

I kept telling my girlfriend not to pose for that UPS picture, that it would keep getting posted all over the Internet, but she wouldn't listen.

Why doesn't Kawasaki offer a clothing line?



If they did, it would probably look something like this.

Why does this THREAD lack BRAIN CELLS?

seriously guys stop slamming other guys and other bikes...its beyond inmature now...

its about riding...

everyone has examples of how another bikes sucks, breaks down, or rips and excels in certain situations...

what boggles my mind is how this thread keeps GOING ON!!!!!!!!

everything has been said good and bad about jap bikes, euro bikes, chinese even

who cares

RIDE and support other riders in their quest for ADVENTURE

later dudes
