No way powerpro69, you blokes can lane split in the UK and those big old bars on the KLR line up unfortunately well the mirrors on many vehicles. Or perhaps that's what you use brush guards for across the pond!

I was just home on vacation, well kind of split up, Glasgow, then home to Coventry and then a week and a half in France Orne/Paris, didn't see one KLR, in the UK I spotted mostly sports bikes, lots of GXR's and the like like and in France, paris in particular I saw tons and tons of BMW R1200's, even saw one with a California plate on it!

You won't spot many KLR650's on the continent. Don't think they sold many due to emissions regs.

You'll see mine There are quite a few KLR650s and Tengai in this part of the World so not a rare sight

I bought my 1988 KLR650 brand new from a dealer in London and rode it to my home in Southern Spain stopping in Madrid for it's first oil change.
At that time in 1988 a KLR650 in Spain cost 950,000 pesetas, around 5000 GBP. I paid 2000 for my bike in London, so I could have bought two and a half London KLR650s for one bike in Spain.

I'm just doing some essential work on the bike because I'm now changing it's original 1988 F registration to Gibraltar registration.
I've just bought some new rear indicators from eBay UK and I've fitted a new choke lever that I bought a little while ago from eBay USA. This is a very well engineered choke assembly made from from a piece of solid aluminium.

Oh! and I'm originally from Hove/Brighton, Sussex
