Welcome to the site and KLR's.
Probably the best all around bike on the planet.
It does a little of everything but excels at nothing except
ridiculous lean angles and getting crazy in the twisties.

On the straights, the rockets blow us away.
For cross country there's nothing like a Goldwing.
In the dirt any full-on dirtbike will shred us.
For cruising, the HD's Vulcans, Shadows, etc. have
us beat for comfort and coolness.

IF ya wanna cruise down the road, rip a nice wheelie, turn onto an interstate,
turn off some exit ramp that leads to mountain roads, then wish to
turn off of those onto some trails and even ford some creeks and shallow rivers,
you indeed have the perfect motorcycle!!!!

This is my son, with whom I am well pleased." ----God
