The Crocodile

I missed this article when it first came out. More of what we already know:
http://dirtbikemagazine.com/home-fea...awasaki-klr650
To summarize:
"Kawasaki’s KLR650 is the crocodile of the motorcycle world."
and my favorite:
" ...if the adventure bike market were driven by pure Vulcan logic, no one would buy anything else."

My favorite line of the article:

Quote:
And, most important of all, it has a $6499 price tag—still. You can buy three KLRs and a used grand piano for the price of a well-equipped BMW R1200GS Adventure.
Yeah... I'm a cheap bastard! I LIKE the fact that my bike is inexpensive - because when this one finally dies, I'll be able to buy another one, and I'll still be "ahead" on price.

People should not be afraid of their governments. Governments should be afraid of their people.
