I have owned four KLR’s though I do not now nor probably not again. Still enjoy riding with the people that own them and still wrench on them from time to time. I ride an Airhead to KLR rides now. Simple by choice.
I looked at the specs before purchase and surprisingly the R100GS is only 30 pounds heavier. Riding it the engine’s inherit low center of gravity makes up for that. Even runs the same tire sizes. Just got a set of Tusk Adventure tires for it.
