Years ago, back when dinosaurs still roamed the earth, I grew up riding Triumph Bonneville motorcycles.
At 650ccs and about 400 pounds, they shared both displacement and weight with the Kawasaki KLR650s if they shared nothing else.
Although they were certainly not "off-road" motorcycles, they were nimble enough to get me far enough away from Interstate 10 for the high desert of California, Arizona, New Mexico and West Texas to swallow me whole.
At this point in my life, I haven't owned a motorcycle in almost 30 years. However, I still have a m/c endorsement on my driver's license. And of course I hope that the skill is "like riding a bicycle" because I've decided to buy a KLR650 and hit the road to find "the meaning of life".
Since I'm now retired and living on a fixed income I hope to find a deal on a used one that's in reliable condition. Because I'm older now, I will probably NOT be planning trips to Tierra Fuego. However, I do aspire to induce the high desert to swallow me yet again.
It looks like I might be able to find a decent one at a price point between $2000 - $4000.
Does that sound about right?
