I bet that KLR owner is also incredibly good looking and awesome as well.
I doubt it. Only someone wanting to over compensate for something would own two such highly desirable vehicles...
Can't rightly remember what a land rover is like to drive, haven't fitted in one since I was about 13...
Must've made them to fit the royals.
"Something" has to be awesome and good looking, as any bike that looks "ok" with a milk crate cable tied on it, has some styling issues.
They drive like a crate on cart wheels.
No mate. That's a secret KLR graveyard site, where embarassed owners take their KLR's to die.
Except coil sprung and smooth as silk if set up right....

Loud crates save lives
I had a works Suzuki model, before the KLR was even invented............and it was waterproof.
The Crate Carrier is looking a little naked tonight.
If that’s a secret gravesite to help embarrassed KLR owners cleanse their souls, what’s that orange thing doing there?
I'm getting very confused here - you seem to buy perfectly good bikes then demolish them.
Is this a subtle form of revenge I don't get?
I just employed a mechanic a bit like that, he took a week to fix my water blaster but in the process it was totally rebuilt top to bottom despite just need a new igniter thingy for the diesel burner. After that I got a lot clearer on what I wished him to achieve. Every time I'd use a tool he'd put it back in the box the moment I put it down, got annoying after a while.
They look half decent in a state of full undress...
Its got 32 years of built up grease and muck on it so i'm stripping to clean and then full service.
New Tyres and tubes, wheel bearings and seals, brake pads and fluids, forks and shock serviced, water pump balancer shaft, Valve shims, chain and sprockets, oil and filters, thermostat and radiator cap, head stem bearing repacked or replaced if needed, rear suspension linkages serviced, hand grips, windscreen, rubbers on the front and rear callipers and a full service... I think thats about it for this time round.
For the purchase price way back then - they were a really good bike.
Just let me know, nev, and I'll send a 950 down to you, I reckon you're a dab hand at the Orange by now.
Nev, whatever you want to use to justify it mate, I’ll go with it.
What I’m finding hard is your selling the Toom, playing with a KLeR. Hmmmm!
My 990 had its first 1000 kilometre service done back in 2006/07 but now has 11 year old oil in it - its next on my "to do" list.
Yeah - the KLR might be a great reminder that memories and best left in the past.
I loved my KLR back in 1988 - it was definitely the best I could afford at the time and what got me into the Adventure side of bike riding.
The 1190 is just way too good for me - i'm always on edge when i'm riding it so don't enjoy it as much as what I should. Its time to move it on I think.
