Call it a mid-life crisis, but
I can't help but think I want to sell my KLR and take up bicycling for my "later years". OK, laugh if you want (I'm only 40), but I really need to get into better cardio. shape, and though the Killer does keep me in good (better) mental health, it's not doing a damn thing for my heart, weight or muscles. I should be able to do both, but my hystory proves otherwise. Given the choice between jumping on the 650 and doing a 200+ mile loop into the hills and gearing up to huff and puff at less than a tenth of the klr's speed, and I chose the mode with the enging every time. :P
Some will surely say "follow your heart", others will say to simply dump it and move on and others still will tell me to keep it and do both. Keeping both is likely what I'll end up doing, but not because I want to ride both. Hell I haven't ridden the klr in weeks. No, I'll likely keep them both simply because I've got so damn much money sunk into the Kawi. that I'll take a real bath on the sale. My other option is part it out.... Strip off all the crap I've bolted to it, sell it separately and then sell the stripped klr alone.
That is just too much work!
Yeah, it's late and I'm tired. :roll:
