Green ones are hard to find

I have decided to buy and I am looking for a green one, I have decided to find a used one someone has put some time into to see how I like it. I may eventually get a new(er) one but it all depends on what I find. They are hard to find at dealerships here in NE GA

Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, proclaiming WOW--What A Ride!!

Man go with a red one. It's a well known fact that they're faster!

Are you looking for the olive drab green or the highlighter kawasaki green? I lucked out and got mine from a guy at cycletrader.com. Ended up driving 5 hours each way (allentown to pittsburgh), but i got exactly the one I wanted.

I want to match my ninja 250 so the trditional kawa green is for me, the green produces less drag making it faster :wink:

Don't forget Craigslist. There's often a lot of KLRs on there at any one particular time.

OR... Get any bike you can for a good price, and get the plastics off of E-Bay. Seller KLRCountry takes the plastics off new uncrated bikes and sells them cheap. So, any year you get you can have a brand new looking one for a few hundred bones!

Sweet! With all the knowledge on this board you can't go wrong. A new bike opens up a whole new style of riding.

Viking is a verb.

+1 on the plastics off of Ebay. You do painting, right Jason? So gas tank is not an issue.

Well, don't invest too much time into painting a sub $5k bike that's made for scratching and dropping on the the trail. You'll be heart broken at the first scratch.
