Hello from Central Square, NY!


My name is Kevin, and I am purchasing an '86 KLR 600 this week (although I have to wait for it as it is being shipped from another state). I always wanted one of these bikes. I remember seeing an '86 KLR back when I was in the Air Force (stationed in Charleston, SC) when me and my buddy Rick were getting into dual sport bikes. We ended up both getting Suzuki SP 200's which were fun to start out on. In 1995 I picked up a mint '87 KLR 650 which I had for years. The 650 was great as it was reliable and just purred like a kitten.

In '01 I was going thru a divorce and had a lot more time to ride. At some point I got spooked. I remember thinking while I was riding, "what if a deer runs out in the road and I hit it at this speed", "if I get hurt who is going to pay the bills". After awhile these thoughts were ruining my riding fun, so I decided to sell the KLR and get into ATV's (which I continue to love).

For some reason the desire to ride motorcycles again has struck me, and I began looking for that '86 that I always wanted. The bike is in great shape so I hope it's as nice as I remember the 650 being.

Any of you that have the '86 KLR 600 please drop me a line on how you like the bike, and what to look out for.

Happy back roads and trails!
