    What are parts like to get in the USA for these older KLR650's?

    Things like blue fork boots centre stand in particular - we don't have much available here in Australia.

    Mine is the 1986 model.

    Pro Cycle over here lists lots of KLR mechanical and service parts along with the Blue fork boots. The other Body plastic, in those colors especially, would be hard to come buy. Hemisphere offroad is making 1st gen replacement plastics in black. I'd assume with the right plastic adhesion primer that you could color match some paint for your ride.

    One of these machines is an ancient relic. A slow, heavy, old tech lump that is an anachronism in the 21st century, a curiosity to most but loved by a loyal but eccentric cult of personalities. The other has a Sidecar hanging from its side.

    And we all know which one we could rely on to get us where we are going. Urals are neat, but your stories alone have swayed me from throwing my hard earned at one.
    I saw the guy leaning on the back to read the map, and thought he was pushing it, lol.
    Long live the king.

    When I had the Ural, whenever Bill (the guy with the Ural in the pic) and I would ride together, we called it Double Trouble and every time, there was some sort of major catastrophe. We both rode together yesterday without any real problems. That speaks volumes about Ural. My Ural mis-adventures were quite infamous. I'd go to motorcycle rallies and pie-runs and stuff and people would talk about "that guy who took his daughter on a multi-state ride in a Ural" or "that guy whose swing-arm just broke while riding one night" and I'd say, "Yeah, I'm that guy." It got me free drinks and made me feel like a living legend. Not worth the price of entry, though. I much prefer the drama-free anonymity of KLR ownership.

    Up here in Canuckland, on the prairies, winter came early... first the Rocky Mountain foothills and across the south, as far east as Moose Jaw, got hammered with a snowstorm, then our turn - we got a foot of wet heavy snow, and further west, probably double that. Power lines were down, record number of people without power, trees and branches down, flooding in areas, a snowpocalypse. We've had a record amount of moisture this fall, and lots of farmers are screwed, will be unable to harvest. Today it cleared up, and warmed up enough to get out for a ride in the country. Most of the snow is gone, leaving flooded fields. Gravel roads are a mess... good here tho. It was 4C when I left the house this morning, and around 9C in the afternoon. This ride made possible (sponsored by :^) by Gerbing heated gear.
