I have noticed a migration over the the past 2 years
I was riding the dirt route into work today and noticed that I now sit right up on the tank most of the time.
I thought back of the first time I went down this route to work and how I fought the bike thru the sand and how unsettled the bike used to feel in the turns.
I remember thinking, Gee this thing really stinks off road.
When I first got this KLR I had been on street bikes for years and sat back on the seat quite a bit. After a few runs thru the sand I started standing on the pegs and that made a HUGE difference in how the bike handled and the speed that I was comfortable with. Slowly I found that after standing I would sit back down, but up closer to the tank. Now I have da' boys right up on the tank almost all the time and feel the need to stand a lot less. I am now also finding that even on road I am in the front section of the seat too.
Any other folks have this forward migration?
