New 2008 KLRs Coming to Dealers in April!

I went to the Kawasaki tent at Daytona Bike Week yesterday to see if they even bothered to bring one of the newly overhauled KLRs with them. Amazingly they had not one but all three color variants to compare, sit on, and drool on. I was told that they will be shipping to dealers in early April. MSRP will only be increased by $200 to $5,399.

Whatever makes you happy...
I refuse to tip-toe through life only to arrive safely at death.

I WAS going to be first in line to get one of the 08's, but since we are selling out and going full time in our RV, I am going to have to go back on what I have said. I hate doing that, but riding around the country in a RV over powers the desire for the new 08 KLR.

I think they are sweet..................

Today is the first day of the rest of your life.

I think they are kinda sweet looking too.

I'm really torn, the new ones look neat and have some upgrades; Brakes, forks, etc... Even though the over all suspension travel (front right?) was reduced.

And then there is the tried and true old model. There isn't a problem someone hasn't had and can help you fix, tons of aftermarket, etc....

I'll probabaly pick up a used one and try to sneak a ride on the new model one of these days.
