This thread has been interesting to say the least. I have owned 4 KLR's, my 2011 runs really good. I love them all. I have owned a few KTM's, one Husky, ummm, yea a few motorcycles. I am mostly a dirt bike rider however, and the KLR is just a big ole comfortable bike, that I can ride in comfort for miles of dirt roads, and less traveled roads. It is perfect for me for that purpose. I have other bikes which I ride alot more to take care of the whoops, sand, hills, roots, rocks, coyotes, cactus, ..... But what really freaks me out about this photo is I may have that same Cross Roads Cruiser fifth wheel? And I have that same "life is good" tee shirt! :eek1 Now that is totally "off the grid".
