YOU want a KLR

One of the interesting things about new riders is the inability for them to except that what they want in a bike isn't always what they need.

Thumbs up

Hehehe....... one of my riding buddies started with the KLR650, and now is on his third Beemer. He misses the KLR, but is always looking for 'best'.

My KLR is The Best for what I need.

ROFLMAO! That was too funny.

Bigdog, have one of those friends too, I can smoke him on my KLR, he changes bikes like I change pants but never really learns how to push his machine.

I think I will have to add KLR riders to my observation about the riders with the most "brand loyalty" (my bike is the best,and if you are not riding one--I am not talking to you). Just kidding-you guys are loyal without the snob crap--nice.The other 3 groups are tough sometimes....who are they you wonder...I would never say..except I saw a gold wing,Harley,and a BMW in a parking lot this morning.

All humor is somewhat based in truth. So yes, I like my KLR, but also my KTM and Vstrom. :-)

My KLR is my interpretation of a poor man's GS. I got what I could afford at the time and was very amazed by the sheer competence of this little motorbike. A keeper for sure.
