Sad days

I might have to sell my 2011 KLR
Not sure yet...But I thought I would let the forum know first.
3600 miles, SW crash bars and an aluminum skid plate.
If I have to sell I'll post pictures.

that sux, my buddy had to sell his as a condition of his divorce, he would have gladly given up something else but she went for the jugular. Hope you can hang on to it!

A KLR is not a motorcycle, it is a blank canvas with which to paint the rest of your life.

Ya, always a sad day when you part with a good bike. What motivates the sale if it isn't personal?

My Kaw Barn - 2004 KLR, 2006 Concours (sold), 1997 Bayou 400.

No it's not personal. It all has to due with transportation needs of the family. Like I said its still up in the air...thing might work out and I'll keep it.

In more than 44 years of owning motorcycles, there is one thing that I have tried to remember (well actually there have been lots of things I've tried to remember, but at the moment this one thing is pertinent)

Not matter how cool the current scooter is or how much you love it....there is always a better one right around the corner.
