History Purchased used with 11,000 miles on it back in August of 2012, I was allowed back into the world of street bikes after a 28 year hiatus. Two houses, two kids later, the better half said yes.
"It's only a one cylinder, just five speeds that won't get me in trouble" was the line I used. And that was brought up when she came rushing to the ER after my crash & ambulance ride a year after I bought it.
Now with over 55,000 miles on it and enough mods to buy another KLR, I think I'll keep it.
