    Cleaning out the garage last week and I found a nice milk crate. :-)

    Too good to throw away and I like the colour so I decided to look around to see what I could mount it to. :patch

    Found this 1986 model KLR650 thats colour coded... :eek7

    Perfect fit and almost doubled the value of the milk crate. :lol3

    She suggested there may be a vacancy in the household coming up soon - I guess she meant one of the kids is moving out. :dunno

    Well, I've learnt something new, I was under the impression KLR's came out of the factory with them mounted!

    You're confusing it with the Limited Edition model that came out with extras, until Kawasaki realised that KLR buyers were too miserable to actually pay for a milk crate.

    What about $500 for the crate Nev? but leave the bike out for hard rubbish collection.

    The only bike the colour of the one on the right just happens to be a KLR also.

    I guess collecting mechanical marvels is a safer expression of ocd than most :hide

    You going to bring your collection up for the mother of all bike shows that I'm just starting to get planned?

    Thinking week long charity based camping event I am.

    Dunc - I think this KLR250 would be perfect for you.

    You can switch between colours on any given day depending on who you're wanting to impress. :-)

    Hell no - my crate is not for sale, at any price.

    You need to go out and steal your own like I did. :lol3

    Touratech missed out on a golden opportunity not including milk crates as part of their after market accessories.

    Probably part of the reason they are in financial trouble.

    You would get more credibility if the milk crates showed some signs of natural wear and tear - they are too clean, take them out and get some dirt on them. :-)
