Wanting a klr 650

Hi to all !!!
New to forum and have a simple question! I would like to buy a klr 650 but am wondering if it may be too big for me..I am 5'9 and the seat shows 35 inches..Am I out of luck or are they a little adjustable in the height dept? Thanks

I'm about the same height, It's an easy bike to ride. I do tip-toe a little, or even "hang a cheek" when stopped but nothing too bad. You shouldn't have a problem. Good luck.

Where? That makes a big difference. Bikes are pricey where I am, for example.

KLR's appear to be even pricier where Stevep51d lives. Craigslistings for his neighborhood all looked high to me, except for the 1991.

$3400.00 isn't a bargain in my book. I would continue shopping.

...and welcome to the forum!

06 KLR price

$3,400 seems high to me too but it's the season. I see gen 2 bikes listed for that price.
