    Crate Balls of Fire - the unthinkable happens, the KLR is destroyed, owner claims insurance and buys a DR never to dabble in milk crates again.
    Crate Pretender - colour matched crate and owner is sure it looks like a BMW
    The Crate Unknown - it's in the shed somewhere. How can I go touring without it?
    How Crate Thou Art - Crate worship (probably owns 2 KLRs)

    Movies, you say?
    Crateablanca - in which the hero swaps the girl for a milk crate.
    The Cratefather - KLR owners are always open to offers.
    The Crate Brothers - 2 blokes put the band back together to finance a new milk crate for the KLR.

    Having long envied your skill with these fantastic re-writes Troy, Ive finally decided to give it a go. Knowing I could never match the skill of the master, I thought it best to start small with something requiring not too many changes to localise it.

    Can only imagine how drunk this guy was when he tried to lock up his milk crate.

    Obviously he meant to place the lock and chain through the milk crate for maximum protection but could only manage hitting the rear wheel- poor bastard must have been off his tits.
