    Hi all,

    A friend and i are over from the UK and starting a trip down to South America. We've picked up 1 beautiful 2011 KLR in amazing condition for $3800, but having trouble finding another with hard panniers on.

    We keep getting told we should take the same bike, however have a reasonable option 2 of taking a V-strom 650 with us instead. It's not got panniers on though and we need the space...

    2 questions...
    1. Anyone know of a KLR for sale?!
    2. Any advice on getting hold of panniers in Anchorage for a V-strom?

    Cheers

    If you bought that blue one in Palmer for that price, I'm mad at myself for dithering over following up on it.

    Alaskalist ( http://alaskaslist.com/?cityid=-3&lang=en&search=klr&pricemin=0&pricemax=0&view=ads&subcatid=50 ) is another place to look.

    Good luck with your search and with your epic ride.
