KLR650 Article

Maybe you've seen this article with the KLR650 vs the BMW F800 or maybe you haven't. Either way it's a good read!

Good article. I had read Part 1 a while back.
I think we all already knew "The Kawasaki KLR650 was (is) the best"
But, what about that gas milage? Only 35 mpg with the KLR (vs. 55 mpg for the Beemer)? I am assuming that was an average, so at times he must have gotten less than 35. Seems awfully low to me.

I commented as much. I bet that was a typo and he was getting 45mpg. Much more like it.
