I love the versatility!!
In the past month, I have used my KLR for normal commuting, to ride forest service trails, go grocery shopping (love those Teton panniers!), carry a month's worth of recyclables to the collection center, take contractor bags of non-recyclables to the dump, and return a month's worth of books to the local library. The folks at the dump, and at the recycle center don't see many loads come in via motorcycle! But the KLR does it all, and still gets 55 mpg to boot!
Like they say, it's a 2-wheeled pick up truck!
