Just want to say hi and thanks. I have been researching for the past 3 months for which bike to get back on, a Transalp vs KLR. KLR IT IS!!!!!. Its been 10 years since throwing a leg over n am actually excited about getting onto something I can tour and explore with. I live central west NSW so will be clocking up some miles pretty easily. Ive worked out the mods I want and accessories, looking for a 2009/2010 with lowish km's. Im taking my time, will wait for the right bike, then will 'farkle it' the way I want. Will be asking heaps of questions re mods, big bore kits, seats and available accessories in australia as compared to usa. Looking fowrad to this new chapter n meeting new like minded people, will be doing the proverbial 'cape york' trip along with many others.
Thanks in advance for your help and must say one of the reasons I went with a KLR was the level of mods, accessories and support and the size of the local aussie forum and how there wasnt a mob of wankers (still not sure what words are inappropriate yet) or knockers trying to out do everyone else, just very supportive, so hats off to all of you.
