As an avid dumpster diver and previous HD owner I too had to have the chrome
and image. Kept a few bits that ended up on the batcycle.
I have an HD exhaust tip on the stock muffler. A chrome strip from a hard saddlebag
found its way down the center of the front KLR fender. The shifter peg on my extension,
monster clutch cable, and license plate frame.
Hope you enjoy the KLR as much as we do! I started on an XL600R and later hadda DR650.
In between was two HD's, a Goldwing, two rockets. and a street standard.
I kept coming back to the dual sports. In this case a 2nd generation KLR as it's
more streetable than the XLR/DR/ Gen 1 KLR's. These have more weather
protection at speed. Not as nimble as the more dirt oriented bikes, but a great
dirtroad blaster n' such. I don't do whoop de doos or deep mud anyway.
You'll likely love your choice especially coming from a dirt background. Yes,
these things corner HARD. Ye hah.
