Well, I might get blasted here--but--I actually bought my '09 KLR to be a winter "beater". What I mean is I wanted a bike I could ride all winter long, and I didn't want to expose my sport bikes to the salt, so the KLR fits the bill perfectly. Yes, I ride it in the salt and winter road crap (I live between Buffalo and Rochester NY-so we got LOTS of winter road "crap") and I just give her a hosing off when I'm done. So far, the bikes doing fine!
