I'm a farkle hound.. I might have more money in doodads, upgrades, and geegaws than the actual value of my '02 KLR..
I admit it.. I don't have a problem with the changes on my bike, and I made them to personnalize the bike, upgrade ride/reliability, or for personal comfort..
I'm often asked why I do this, and it's something I do to most bikes in order to make it mine.. Put it this way, if you put 100 KLRs in a parking lot and attempt to hide mine in the bunch, I'll find my bike in seconds..
But what I'm wondering is the reasoning behind those who don't change thier bikes.. I'm not pointing fingers, and I wouldn't even consider calling you wrong. Your bike is YOUR bike, and nobody has a right to tell you to do something unless they're making your payments for you..
Most KLR owners I know are like myself, and tend to change their bikes.. Some more than others.. But I'm interested in hearing from those who don't..
I understand if you feel your bike is how you want it, right from the factory.. I know with my Goldwing, I felt pretty close to that, with my only changes being an electrical outlet (for electrical clothing or running an air mattress blower) and adding a GPS (I don't like Honda's version, and I can switch mine between the Wing and the KLR)..
That's all I've done to one of the bikes that is typically seen with extra lights and numerous stuff hanging off of them.. So, you see, I understand not changing bikes..
That said, tell me about your stock bike and why you like it that way.. I'm always interested in this!!!
