Funny, in 1996 I bought a brand new KLR from the Kawasaki dealer in Universal City Texas outside of San Antonio. Strapped bags on that thing and rode it down through Mexico and all over Texas. Thought I was quite the bigshot with my first ever brand new bike as opposed to used. I moved that same year to Miami and rode a 93 R100GS a guy in The Keys was selling and immedeatly sold the KLR (both pictured below). Recently sold my GSPD and bought the KLR and absolutely love it here in the mountains. They have a similar simplicity as airheads in my opinion. And similar to airheads you can make em what you want. I bought my 2009 for 2500 from an attorney in Breckenridge not running and put 4K into it (so far). Such a capable bike. Planning on Alaska in August next year with some Australian friends., all are welcome.
